Davenport, Iowa (February 24, 2014) – It may be cold here in the Quad Cities, but the Figge Art Museum will turn up the heat with the Mardi Gras Rajun Cajun Fest on Fat Tuesday, March 4.

Chefs from the Figge, Machine Shed, Crow Valley Country Club, Sippi’s, Select Specialty Hospital, Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse, Paddle Wheel, Thunder Bay and Gramma’s Kitchen will be set up in the lobby of the museum from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and will cook Cajun-inspired dishes for guests to sample.

The dishes of the evening will include crawfish tacos, Cajun seasoned pork tenderloin topped with candied bacon, Cajun catfish sliders with Creole slaw, slow cooked beef cheek with a Cajun crawfish celery root remoulade, Creole shrimp, spicy deep fried oysters with corn bread casserole, alligator gumbo, Louisiana stuffed jalapeno peppers with Cajun bacon, Café Du Monde liquid nitrogen ice cream, chicken and sausage etouffee and more.

Guests are invited to get into the Mardi Gras spirit by tasting all the flavorful dishes, participating in a make-your-own Mardi Gras mask art activity, enjoying a Mardi Gras themed photo area, partaking in a cash bar and casting votes for their favorite chef of the evening. The winning chef will receive a People’s Choice plaque and bragging rights.
