Kathy G’s a Ragin’ Cajun!
This month, Kathy G wants to show her spicy side by sharing one of her favorite dishes from deep down in Louisiana.  Étouffée (A spicy Cajun stew of vegetables and seafood) is the perfect meal for a cold February night or for sharing with fiends while watching the big game and enjoying a beer or two.  Season to taste and make it as spicy as you like, but please note that no matter how delicious your etouffée comes out, it simply MUST be served over rice.  Enjoy!!!

Cocktails, Dancing, and Kathy G
The Pointe Ball, one of the most exciting annual fundraisers in Birmingham, took place on January 28th and Kathy G was once again selected to cater and design the black tie affair benefitting the Alabama Ballet. The event took place at Saks Fifth Avenue and included cocktails, dinner and dancing as well as a vignette ballet performance, which all attendees would agree was spectacular.  The theme for the dinner was “Swan Lake” with a menu that included Herb-Crusted Filet of Beef Tenderloin over Truffled Wild Mushroom Risotto.  The dessert theme was “Alice in Wonderland” with several sweet offerings including “Mad Hatter” Macaroons, Meringue Mushrooms, and Chocolate Pot de Crème.
