New Year, New Red Beans & Rice Popup Supper!
Gather ’round with Pableaux Johnson (New Orleans food writer, photographer and one of Epicurious’ recent Top 100 Greatest Home Cooks of All Time) at his next stop in Houston, Texas. His Red Beans Road Show will be staging a Monday-night takeover on January 27, 2020, when Brennan’s chef Joe Cervantez and host Alex Brennan-Martin and their crew will open Brennan’s of Houston for a night of food, friends and fun.
This family style throw-down will feature a chef-created appetizer, Pableaux’s famous red beans & rice with cornbread, and something sweet – plus maybe a surprise or two. Pableaux always keeps it interesting!

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).
Take the Tradition Home with You
Everyone who attends gets a bag of Camellia Red Kidney Beans and a recipe card to make Red Beans & Rice, so you can start your own tradition at home!
