Big Freedia, the Queen of New Orleans Bounce, has a new, weekly cooking show, Garden Cookout, shot LIVE in the edible botanical gardens in New Orleans City Park. Starting July 2nd, 7 PM CST, and every Thursday thereafter, Freedia will prepare garden-to-table meals like You Already Know Stuffed Bell Peppers, and sides like Booty Smac ‘n Cheese and fresh grilled asparagus…using fresh herbs and vegetables picked straight from the garden!

“Cookouts bring people together! I am so excited to get people back together in an outdoor environment. To partner with City Park, who have been educating the public about gardening and food, is an honor.”
If you wanna attend in person, this is a socially distanced event…so, there are limited, $75 tickets available HERE…which include a 3-course meal, complimentary cocktail, and a photo with Big Freedia. Otherwise, you can live stream on Freedia’s Instagram or Facebook.
