A “Heart Healthy Lunch” was also served to guests and included a Louisiana-inspired winter salad, followed by grilled chicken breast with a portobello demi glace and sides of Louisiana jasmine rice, seasonal, local vegetables and a buttered roll. A decadent dark chocolate almond tart with espresso crème anglaise was served with coffee or tea for dessert. Passion Presentations and the Go Red Fashion Show took place after lunch.
