Tony Chachere's Tailgates in Daytona, FL for the Nascar Coke Zero 400.It was one hot fourth of July weekend in Daytona, Florida this year, but that did not stop the races or the celebrations. Daytona hosted a weekend of races at Daytona International Speedway all culminating with the Nascar Coke Zero 400 Cup Series Race on Saturday night. Families and friends traditionally gather together in groves to tailgate and enjoy all the festivities. Wait...what was that....tailgate?...Yes, and if there is anything Louisiana people know how to do is tailgate.
Long time Tony Chachere's employees, Todd Ardoin, Creative Director and Cindy Adams-Ardoin, Food Scientist made the trip out to Florida to enjoy time with Tony Chachere's advertising agency, Benedict Advertising and catch some races. BA hosted a weekend long tailgating party. Todd and Cindy thought they would bring some Tony Chachere's goodness to the gathering.
On Friday, Todd and Cindy set up camp with their burner, pot, veggies, fresh shrimp and crawfish, and of course, Tony Chachere's More Spice Seasoning. With Todd as her sous chef, Cindy prepared a traditional etouffee with 15 pounds of seafood! The 20 quart pot was full and the rice was hot. When Cindy announced “Come and Get It!,” you better look like getting out of the way of the Floridians! Within 10 minutes, it was all gone. Proving one more time, Louisiana cooking with Tony Chachere's Creole Seasonings is as good as it gets!
Many thanks to Benedict Advertising for letting a couple of Tony Chachere's guys crash the party! Oh yeah, the races were great too!
