Chef Jude Tauzin adds Louisiana flair to wine dinners

Published: Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 02:54 PM.

A patron of the dinners recommended Tauzin last year and DCWAF President John Russell invited him back.

"Jude did a fabulous job for us last year in quality and presentation," said Russell.

The chef list for the dinners include local chefs Tim Creehan and Dan Vargo, as well as more from top restaurants in Atlanta, Louisiana, South Beach, a couple from the Keys, and one from Charleston.

"The men and menus are diverse," said Russell. "We try to move them around each time and keep it interesting."

Each host chooses a children's charity their dinner will benefit and a representative speaks at that dinner about the charity.

"One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the dinners go to charity and all profits from the festival," said Russell.

Several of the dinners have already sold out. There are a few seats left at $2,500 a couple. Tickets are available for purchase on the website at
