Mardi Gras feast to have New Orleans flavor

CRYSTAL LAKE – You do not have to travel to the French Quarter in New Orleans for a fun-filled Mardi Gras with a traditional Cajun feast.

A Mardi Gras Madness dinner is planned from 7 to 9 p.m. Feb. 12 by McHenry County College’s Continuing Education Department.

The Fat Tuesday dinner will be at 1776 Restaurant, 397 W. Virginia Road in Crystal Lake. It will feature chicken gumbo, salad cascabel vinaigrette, a main course choice of shrimp étouffée or jambalaya and a dessert of dark chocolate and pistachio torte.

The wine discussion will focus on spicy foods and wine pairings to bring out the most robust flavor in both. Wines will include champagne, an older vintage German wine, a mencia and a local port from Grayslake. 

The cost is $75 per person. Use course ID: NCU S81 002 when registering.

Register by Feb. 6 to ensure a seat. To register, call the MCC Registration Office at 815-455-8588.
