Creole Sweet is a day-long forum focused on the quintessential Louisiana candy, the praline. This is a presentation of The Historic New Orleans Collection and Dillard University’s Ray Charles Program and Institute for the Study of Culinary Cultures.

Talks and panel discussions about the vending, production, and consumption of pralines will journey from Mexico to Jamaica, from Puerto Rico to the Pelican State (that's Louisiana, to the rest of us).

The forum opens with a keynote address by Dr. Jessica Harris and brings together a variety of speakers including Mary Margaret Pack, Nicole Taylor, Poppy Tooker, Liz Williams, and Rien Fertel.

Registration: $50 per person, $35 for Dillard faculty, THNOC members and students
