Red Beans Road Show: Gather ‘Round the Table in Durham, NC, and Richmond, VA.

No event exemplifies the Camellia Brand motto of “Gather ‘Round” better than food-writer and natural-born cook Pableaux Johnson’s Red Beans Road Show Pop-up Suppers, now heading to Reusing’s in Durham, NC, on Sept. 6, and to Alewife in Richmond, VA, on Sept. 8. Get your tickets to come break cornbread and make memories with friends and strangers alike. Plus, it’s for a good cause! For each event, the Road Show donates to a local cause of the chef’s choice.

“When you sit around Johnson’s table… you’re not supposed to fiddle with your phone. You talk. You meet people. You drink. You eat. You remember what it’s like to connect with strangers over a meal.” –  The Washington Post

Good, Simple Food & New Friends

Louisiana food writer, photographer and “general n’er-do-well” Pableaux Johnson meets up with local restaurant chefs in each town or city he visits, to host an informal, family-style feast featuring “good, simple food, camaraderie and appropriate misbehavior.” 

Pableaux Is a Hoot!

Buy your tickets and show up to eat, drink and shoot the breeze with culinary and culture enthusiasts. As ringleader and organizer of the shenanigans, Pableaux gives a short presentation on Louisiana foodways that will leave you hankering for all things Louisiana, and then it’s a fun night of breaking bread (Pableaux’s grandpa’s skillet cornbread, that is), eating down-home, delicious food and drinking a cold beer with a roomful of friendly strangers. 

Local Chefs Are in on It

Pableaux cooks his signature Red Beans & Rice made with Camellia Brand Red Kidney Beans, and his local chef partners serve up a simple starter (like deviled eggs or hand pies) and a dessert (like bread pudding or homemade pie).
