Mardi Gras Dinner

When: Fri., Feb. 24 2012

Fat Tuesday is over and we’re well into Lent. But for those of us still jonesing for jambalaya and King Cake, Chef Robin Blair is happy to hit rewind. The personal chef and educator is dishing up a traditional Mardi Gras dinner tonight at the Shore Cultural Centre; it’s the launch of a series of monthly cultural dinners at the Euclid nonprofit. “We wanted to create a time for community and fellowship,” says Chef Robin, a Shaker Heights High School grad who honed her culinary chops at Tri C. “We’ll have music, activities for the kids, and a cooking demonstration. But best of all, it’s inexpensive: only $10 for adults or $25 for a family of four.” Also on the menu: vegan black beans and rice, Cajun-style collard greens, gumbo, and beignets. Payment will be taken at the door, although Blair asks that you preregister by emailing

Price: $10
