The SOFAB Institute's gorgeous new digs are about to open. Just this year, SOFAB shuttered its Riverwalk location and set its sights on the Dryades Street Market building at 1504 O.C Haley. Built in 1849, the 30,000 square foot behemoth is set to include exhibits like the Leah Chase Louisiana Gallery and La Galerie d'Absinthe, a much-needed feature that more than supplements the shuttered Absinthe Museum of America.
The ribbon-cutting event begins at 1pm this Monday, September 29th at SOFAB's new location. Celebration events include a lecture and culinary master classes with California Cuisine pioneer Jeremiah Tower. The SOFAB Culinary Library and Archive will also be open just a block away at 1609 O.C Haley. Its collection includes archives, historic documents, and thousands upon thousands of cookbooks.
