Get New Orleans Cookin' Again - getneworleanscookinagain
The 2005 Tailgating Fundraiser for Hurricane Relief
and opened the door for a new opportunity for the Preau family.
Five years later, the Preau family has created Paul’s delicious jambalaya recipe into a dry mix that is now being packaged and sold as Cook Me Somethin’ Mister Jambalaya Mix. They have also launched a new product for the tailgating market with a line of painted and logoed aluminum pots called, FAN POTS. More information on the Preau’s products and business is available at www.cookmesomethinmister.com.
Today, Kristen has since joined the family business and is enjoying her new title as the “Jambalaya Girl!” She works together with her dad, Paul, and brother, Kevin, in their New Orleans office promoting Cook Me Somethin’ Mister Jambalaya Mix along side ADGAS Outdoor Cooking Products. Paul’s wife, Karen, continues to show her support by attending tailgating events, cooking at demos and making bowls of the family’s Jambalaya for fans. Her company title is “Jambalaya Mom.”
