A good piece of Louisiana is coming to Northwest Arkansas this weekend, and you should go check it out. Chef Tory McPhail from Commander’s Palace in New Orleans is teaming up with Chef Mike Johnson, current chef at Pensacola’s Cloud9Chocolates and former pastry chef at Commander’s Palace — to create four really fantastic meals that you can attend this weekend.

I caught Chef McPhail by phone while he was packing up all sorts of Louisiana delights this afternoon. He’s sending 27 big boxes of foods that will be consumed at these dinners, and he’s excited about coming up this way.
