Honey wine and duck supper at Noble Savage on Sat, Oct 3, 6 pm - 8 pm, buzzing the LFP movie "Honey and the Hive"
Duck in a reduced pomegranate-honey sauce and honey-glazed salmon are two of the six courses being served by the kitchen of David Stoddard at Noble Savage Tavern on Sat, Oct 3, 6 pm to 8 pm, says Lee Slack. There's a different mead, or honey wine, paired with each course. "Among them are 2 African meads and 2 Danish meads," says Slack. The dessert is the honey-soaked Mediterranean treat called baklava.
New Orleans filmmaker Austin Alward brought the honey beezness to Shreveport and to the Noble Savage with his 11-min Louisiana Film Prize top twenty film, "Honey and the Hive."
The Noble is buzzed: "You don't get to do something different like this very often," Slack notes. "We are having fun with it."
Alward landed at the Noble when he was chasing a school bus as a promotion center for his film. He has secured the bus owned by Savage waiter Peter Fetterman. The bus, being turned into a giant bee and a center for education about honey and bee-keeping, is parked at 516 Texas St. Visit the Bumblebus during the La Film Prize weekend to play Bee Hive Corn Hole and have all-ages fun.
The Noble Savage mead and game supper is six courses for $60. Slack says they already have 25 reservations. Check to see about supper openings at 221-1781.
