Last weekend was the annual “Taste of Jefferson” Texas.
The Chamber of Commerce decided this year that they were going to have only one award for the People’s Choice award and this year it was won by Gena the owner of the Austin Street Bistro in downtown Jefferson Texas.
Gena made a scrumptious Sweet potato and mushroom bisque and then some savory bread pudding.
There were so many awesome food pairings presented by many of our local restaurants and businesses, some even coming from Caddo Lake. This year the streets were very festive with tables, chairs and the many fall decorations were all out in the beautiful sunshine for people to enjoy. Also new this year we had two bands at either end of the street, everyone really loved to be able to dine while listening to great music.
Kristin and Kayann from the Chamber presented Gena with her award this morning. The award has a lovely silver spoon from Russia on it, the spoon was donated by chamber member Lafayette Gallery a local antique shop.
