(03/21/18) BATON ROUGE, La. – Signature cocktails and cuisine from local chefs and mixologists and made with the local flavors of Louisiana will be featured during the fifth annual Gourmet in the Garden at the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden from 6 to 9 p.m. on April 19.

The event is presented by the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens and the Louisiana Culinary Institute Foundation and sponsored in part by Republic National Distributing Company, said Jeff Kuehny, director of the Botanic Gardens.

The evening will include live music by United We Jam and food creations from local restaurants prepared with locally grown products along with samplings of beverages from Louisiana distilleries and local mixologists. The event will culminate with presentations of the People’s Choice and Juried Cocktail awards.

“This is a unique event in which both local chefs and mixologists provide the best of what they have to offer, often pairing the cocktail and the food so that they enhance each other on your palate,” Kuehny said.
