Larose Regional Park’s Wild Game Supper slated for Feb. 20

Larose Regional Park’s Wild Game Supper slated for Feb. 20

Jimmy Perrin chows down on some smothered nutria and kangaroo medallions at last year’s Wild Game Supper. Tickets are on sale now and must be purchased before this year’s event set for Thursday, February 20.

Join the hundreds of experienced hunters, amateurs, and the want-to-be hunters and fishermen as they exchange stories of the jungles, the forests, the oceans, and the open fields. 

They will be telling wonderful stories on Thursday, February 20, and the Larose Regional Park Pavilion will be packed with people who have joined together to enjoy the tastes of the familiar wild game dishes as well as the exotic. 

The setting is wonderful!  Much like a museum, the outer edges of the pavilion will have an exhibit of varied mounted animals hunted in the United States and throughout the world.  Many of these mounts are set in wildlife settings.

For those who have enjoyed hunting trips and fishing trips, there is always a good story to tell and you can be sure they are planning the next outing. 

Next Thursday, the Larose Regional Park will host the 17th Annual Wild Game Supper of more than 40 dishes prepared by Bayou Lafourche chefs.  Ticket holders can taste venison, turtle, duck, alligator, quail, rabbit and nutria.  There will be a few exotic dishes featured also. 

Some of the popular exotic dishes prepared for the supper will be Buffalo, Ragu Patot, Axis and Pork Routee, Wild Hog Wins, Turtle Soup, Rabbit in Apple Sauce, Ostrich Meatballs, Etouffee Macaroni Canard and Llama Stir Fry! 

There will also be traditional favorites such as Buffalo Chili, White Oyster Soup, Puldo Andouille and Oyster Gumbo, Duck Fricasse and more! 

No one leaves this event hungry!

Awards in the categories of fin, fur, and feathers have become much sought after while the Overall Winner of the Best Tasting Dish garners definite bragging rights.  There will be a traditional auction of 25 items that includes the unique Gun of the Year.

The Wild Game Supper supports the park’s long-term Endowment efforts.  From its early beginnings of a private get-together after the hunting season, this event has grown by leaps and bounds. 

Tickets to the Wild Game Supper must be purchased in advance and donations are as follows:

- $60 Individual Tickets with seating at 6:45 p.m.;

- $800 VIP Tables with 8 seats, includes t-shirts, early seating, personal servers and a beer for each guest;

- $2500 Conservation Tables (Limited) with 8 seats, also includes t-shirts, early seating, personal server, a beer and wine for each guest, along with the option to hang a company banner under the pavilion.

New this year will be the Tales and Ales Cocktail Hour, from 5 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., along with carving demonstrations and showings from local carvers.
