Spring festival season is upon us, so on this week’s Louisiana Eats we’re going to get you ready to be the host—or hostess—with the mostess!
No one knows how to entertain quite like like Julia Reed. In her book, But Mama Always Put Vodka in Her Sangria! she offers a number of stories from a lifetime of rollicking culinary escapades. Julia lets us in on some tips for hosting a cocktail party for the ages.
When it comes to throwing a party, weddings are as big as they come. And the Remedy Room is at your service to make sure your guests' pre-wedding revelry doesn't interfere with the big day.

And finally, we raise a glass with a man who’s got whiskey in his blood—Bulleit Bourbon founder Tom Bulleit. He explains what propelled him to bite the bullet and pursue a full-time career in whiskey.
