Cookbook author and columnist Marcelle Bienvenu will be cooking traditional New Orleans seafood dishes On Friday from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Central Market, 3815 Westheimer.

In her new cookbook, Bienvenu compiled 250 authentic recipes along with the stories about how they came to be and who created them.

Bienvenu grew up in southern Louisiana and had worked with working with Ella Brennan and Paul Prudhomme and Emeril Lagasse at Commander’s Palace.
