“THE DISH THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE”
October 14 – 25 at restaurants across New Orleans

Last year, the Emeril Lagasse Foundation coordinated the first “Dish that Makes a Difference” event throughout the Emeril’s restaurant family to raise funds for NOCCA’s Culinary Arts program. This year, the Foundation wanted to broaden the impact of the program and open it up to more restaurants across the city.

And so, The NOCCA Institute sponsored a recipe contest for NOCCA’s Culinary Arts students, and chefs and restaurateurs from across the city came to NOCCA to evaluate the three finalists’ dishes. When all was said and done, senior Grace Treffinger walked away with top honors for her Chipotle Braised Pork with Poblano Maque Choux and Satsuma Marmalade.

Now, you can taste Grace’s creation yourself – and you’ll be helping NOCCA when you order it! The dish will be featured on dishes at restaurants across New Orleans from October 14 – 25,  and a portion of proceeds from the sale of the dish will go to NOCCA’s Culinary Arts program.

Grace has given each participating chef license to interpret her dish in different ways so that it matches the cuisine of these very different restaurants. That means you can eat in all 11 restaurants, and you’ll experience 11 different versions of Grace’s outstanding dish! Participating restaurants include:
