The Home Table hits the road

·      It's pretty simple, actually. Over the years, we've adapted Pableaux's Monday-night red beans and rice tradition to the rigors of the road. It's a chance to take Louisiana hospitality to far-flung cities, to commune with like-minded chefs and see (and make) friends along the way. 

  •  In its current incarnation, the Red Beans Roadshow is an ongoing series of medium-format pop-up suppers held in restaurants around the US.
  • Pableaux teams up with a local partner chef for an informal family-style feast.
  • He cooks red beans and skillet cornbread. The host chef serve up a simple starter (deviled eggs, hand pies, etc.) and a dessert (bread puddin', pies pies pies).  
  • The Roadshow is informal, affordable and as unfussy as we can possibly make it. We gravitate toward 8-person tables (to encourage crosstalk) and a "put your phone away" policy (to encourage conversational mystery and creative storytelling). 
  • As ringleader and organizer, Pableaux does short explanatory dog-and-pony shows on Louisiana foodways. 
  • Roadshows are ticketed events (beer/wine inclusive) and seat between 50-80 folks a show. Tickets are purchased on this site.
