By popular demand, Indigenous Chef César Gachupin de Díos and his son Victor Gachupin Velasco from Oaxaca, Mexico are returning to New Orleans to present the Stone Soup Pop-Up experience on Wednesday, November 9th, Friday, November 11th, Saturday, November 12th and Sunday, November 13th at Vaughan’s Lounge, 4229 Dauphine St., New Orleans, LA. Start time is 6pm for each event. Stone Soup is a freshwater seafood soup that is cooked to perfection using red-hot river stones. As an ancient ritual, Stone Soup is prepared by men to honor elders, women, children and distinguished guests of the Chinantec community of Mexico. New Orleans based visual historian Sarah Borealis co-produced “The Path of Stone Soup,” a documentary film that chronicles the Gachupin family as they keep the tradition of preparing stone soup alive. The Gachupins have been designated cultural ambassadors for their native community by the Chinantec Council of Elders.

Advanced reservations are recommended and available for $20 – $35 at Eventbrite and to support the project further, please visit our GoFundMe page. Proceeds from the event will support the Chinantec Council of Elders in San Felipe Usila, Oaxaca.
