McIlhenny Company, maker of TABASCO Sauce, will kick off 2018 with its first-ever Taste of TABASCO Week from January 28 to February 3 in New Orleans. This special restaurant week will commemorate both TABASCO Brand’s 150th anniversary and the City of New Orleans’ 300th anniversary, by celebrating the people who have made TABASCO Sauce an essential ingredient in classic and contemporary cuisine.

TABASCO Brand is intertwined throughout New Orleans’ rich culinary heritage and continues to inspire chefs around the city. Dozens of New Orleans’ most notable chefs and culinary hotspots will participate in Taste of TABASCO Week by offering exclusive menus and dishes infused with TABASCO Sauce.

“What better way to mark this historic milestone than with delicious foods prepared by the talented chefs who have made New Orleans a culinary destination,” says Anthony ”Tony” Simmons, president & CEO of McIlhenny Company and fifth-generation McIlhenny family member. “My great-great-grandfather, Edmund McIlhenny, started making TABASCO Sauce 150 years ago on Avery Island. He’d be proud to know that same recipe continues to enliven the flavors of food and drinks today.”
