Bulldog Cheek Ravioli. “Big Al” Elephant Tusks. Hotty Toddy Bread Pudding.

These are just three of the original recipes Tigers fans will choose from during the annual LSU Kick Off Wine Dinner hosted by Ruffino’s Restaurant on Tuesday, August 26, from 6:30 to 10 p.m.

Chef Peter Sclafani let his imagination run wild while creating a menu that any hungry LSU fan can appreciate. The prix-fixe dinner will feature five delicious courses, each a nod to one of LSU’s opponents, and each paired with a glass of wine.

“We wanted to take a few friendly jabs at our SEC brethren, while also staying true to our ‘Creole meets Italian’ cuisine,” said Chef Sclafani, Ruffino’s executive chef and co-owner. “We’ll help everyone get pumped for LSU football season as we feast on the competition with some truly original dishes.”
