Bayou Brunch: NOLA Multicultural Tourism Serves Art & Soul

New Orleans Multicultural Tourism Network sure knows how to put on a fine soiree.

Chef Serigne Mbaye’s Senegalese Seafood Gumbo served with Rice

This year, NOMTN as they are affectionately known, held a swank brunch during the Essence Festival weekend at the Stella Jones Gallery.

With the theme, “The Soul of The Tricentennial,” this VIP Brunch was curated by Black-owned businesses and contractors. NOMTN is the organization that brings awareness to businesses of color in the Big Easy so it was only appropriate that their must-attend brunch embody that philosophy.

Guests dined on an amazing meal made by 24-year-old Chef Serigne Mbaye. The young culinary whiz infuses his Senegalese traditions into the New Orleans cuisine for a combination made in foodie heaven.
