What you'll do

First, we will meet and greet at Clesi's Restaurant and enjoy a cocktail of your choosing. Once we finish with introductions, we will then move to the restaurant's one of a kind boiling pad for a hands-on experience with a traditional Crawfish Boil. We will be boiling Crawfish, Corn, Potatoes, and Andouille Sausage. You will participate in the cleaning, handling and boiling of the Crawfish. After we are finished boiling, you will be seated for dinner. You will then learn how to peel Boiled Crawfish the traditional N'awlins way. For dinner, you will be served Boiled Crawfish, Potatoes, Corn, Andouille Sausage and traditional Jambalaya, while washing it down with a drink of your choice. Once we are done with dinner, each guest will receive Bread Pudding a la mode. We will wrap up the day with any final questions that you may have! It's all about the experience!
