Rehearsal Dinners & Wedding Boils
Tess & Bernard Fruge wanted something really unique for their rehearsal dinner they could share with friends and family from out of town. They paired a cool venue-Dr. Bob’s Folk Art, a funky cool art compound in New Orleans-with a cochon de lait and boiled crawfish from Hawk’s topped off with music from Soul Creole.
Donald Link has always been a big fan of Hawk’s Crawfish. So much so he’s given us a shout out in Saveur Magazine and Food & Wine Magazine. We ran into him one night at Hawk’s when he took some of his staff on a bus from New Orleans to Robert’s Cove just for Hawk’s crawfish. We got to talking and when I told him we had a mobile business he booked us right then and there. We boiled crawfish in City Park, New Orleans while the Link Restaurant Group employees played games and drank, a lot.
What’s better than boiling crawfish for your best friends? Morgan and Dené moved to New Orleans just before crawfish season and were craving some Hawk’s crawfish real bad. We were headed up there to do a rehearsal dinner and decided to make it a double header. We boiled for their closest friends and family right in their backyard and had a great time with friends.
Our good friends Denny & Katie Culbert who host themed pop up dinners to raise money for non-profits contacted us about doing a benefit with other Lafayette chefs. They wanted us to be part of Runaway Boil with Hawk’s crawfish providing the pièce de résistance. We served along side some of the best chefs in Lafayette and had a blast doing it, all for a good cause.
When we first wanted to get into the crawfish catering business we wanted to test the waters. We chatted with our good buddy Al over at the Rusted Rooster to see if he would let us do a boil up on a weekend when he was closed. Thankfully he was game and we were sold out of crawfish in less than two hours.
