Your Mardi Gras Guide To Dinner

Mardi Gras parades began on January 29, 2022 and the season goes all the way up to March 1. If you are looking to plan a get together with family and friends for Mardi Gras, learn about some of the great meal options to serve them, as well as some kitchen and dining options from Jubilee Gift Shop to add decor to the festivities. We hope that these meal options inspire you to have a great Mardi Gras season for your family and friends. 

King Cake 

King Cake is actually a dish that is ideal to serve from Epiphany (the end of Christmas throughout the Mardi Gras season). The type of cake served in the South is often simple, made with a twisted cinnamon roll-style dough. There are several different variants of King Cake, which can include pralines, fruits, cream cheese, and more. If you are serving King Cake at your Mardi Gras event, our King Cake Server is a festive serving implement.

Crawfish Étouffée 

This is a traditional Cajun and Creole meal option. It’s a thick stew served over white rice. Peppers, onion, and crawfish give it a warm flavor. The right mixture of butter and flower can help achieve an ideal consistency. We have several different spoon holders in our kitchen and dining collection that can be used to hold a serving spoon at the dinner table to help give your meal a more appetizing appeal. 

Dirty Rice 

Dirty rice comes in a wide variety of different flavors. It is cooked in chicken and beef stock, giving it a rich flavor and dark texture, hence its name. Dirty rice is a great option as a side dish or a main course. The traditional main ingredient, chicken liver, is not as appealing to some, so it can be flavored with other ingredients like bell peppers, ground pork, and bacon. Try any of our salt and pepper shakers, such as the White Fleur De Lis set, to let your guests add a little flavor.


This, by and far, is one of the most popular dishes in the South. This dish combines different varieties of meats (like chicken, shrimp, sausage) with the “holy trinity” (bell peppers, onions, and celery). We have several different serving platters to hold the main course that may add some festive appeal to this great meal.
