"Us Up North" Food Tour

April 28, 2018

Please join us as we show off a mix of the wonderful flavors we offer up north. You will start the tour by enjoying a sample of Chef Harris' famous "Us Up North" Fried Catfish. Afterwards, we will board a shuttle and continue throughout the city making a few more stops at some of her favorite spots serving up the best dishes Shreveport-Bossier has to offer. You will enjoy a sample of the most popular dish or beverage each stop has on their menu. There'll be craft beer, crawfish and a whole lot more. Come with an empty stomach! 

She has single-handedly led the effort to celebrate the foods of north Louisiana’s waterways and farms by establishing the official meal of North Louisiana. It is only the second official meal in the United States and Chef Harris wrote it. Along with help from her State Representative Gene Reynolds, House Concurrent Resolution HCR No. 88 was passed by the Louisiana Legislature in 2015 celebrating north Louisiana cuisine. 

Chef Harris is originally from Minden, Louisiana and was recently named as one of Louisiana Life Magazine's Louisianians of the Year of 2017 and one of three chefs named Best Small Town Chef of 2017 by Country Roads Magazine.
