The last season of HBO’s “Treme” has come to an end, but the celebration is just beginning. The show’s creator and executive producer David Simon, executive producer Nina Noble, and story editor/ cookbook author Lolis Eric Elie presents: Talking “Treme”, a celebratory event held at 92Y. Matt Zoller Seitz of New York magazine is set to moderate the talk which aims to take a closer look at the role of New Orleans cuisine in the popular show. 92Y will stay true to the festive vibes of the Mardi Gras capital by setting up the room cabaret style, inviting a jazz pianist to play before the talk begins, and serving free food and cocktails from the cookbook, Treme: Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans (written by Elie).
The Talking “Treme” event is the next best thing from going to NOLA yourself! Enjoy New Orleans-style jazz, French 75 and Hot-or-Cold Hendrickson’s cocktails, tastings of red beans and rice with smoked turkey wings and Paul Trevigne pound cake - all before the talk at 8:15. The event will also be airing on a livecast here for those who can’t make it in person.
