The first annual Jolie Blon Gumbo Fest was held at Sourwood at the North Gate Station Saturday, Jan. 11 from 4-8 p.m. Louisiana chef extraordinaire Jeff Moreau teamed up with Sourwood’s Rick Stack to serve up four authentic dishes including chicken and sausage gumbo, seafood gumbo, red beans and rice, and crawfish po’boys.

One hundred fifty tickets were sold and a good time was had by all with Brad Morgan entertaining diners with guitar and vocals. “Jolie Blon”or “pretty blond” is a traditional French-language Cajun waltz believed to be the most famous Cajun song ever written.

“I like to have events during the winter when nothing else is going on to get people to come out,” Stack said. “It worked. We had a big crowd despite the weather.”

Moreau has helped host similar events at the Big Canoe Clubhouse with Cajun food and music.

Stack says he plans more winter events including a wine dinner on January 22 and encourages all to call for reservations.

Sourwood, 60 N Gate Station Drive, Marble Hill, GA 30148, 470-695-3600.
