On October 30, local chefs Jay Ducote and Chris Wadsworth hosted a Haunted House Pop-Up Dinner at The Stockade Bed and Breakfast on Highland Road. The event was held to raise money for Wadsworth’s new training venture, Triumph Kitchen, a non-profit education venue that will serve as a training facility to teach culinary, hospitality and life skills to at-risk youth.

For the dinner, Ducote and Wadsworth prepared a thirteen- course meal full of tricks and treats. Creepy courses included smoked duck heart in smoked carrot skin, vampire-repelling garlic risotto, “Ghost Bites” (marshmallow and rum chatta foam), and “poisoned apple” bread pudding.

The event raised more than $800 for Triumph Kitchen, which is currently set to open in January of next year.

“The Haunted Pop-Up was a one-of-a-kind event complete with spooktacular food, wine from Louisiana’s own Landry Vineyards, and a setting that is truly a gem for Baton Rouge,” said Ducote. “The Stockade B&B provided a perfect backdrop for the Halloween-themed pop-up dinner. We had an amazing turnout, a lot of fun, and raised a lot of money for Triumph Kitchen while doing it!”
