New Orleans Bill letting people know he has Creole Potato Salad!
Bill and his Creole Potato Salad has been on tour in Northern California Lucky Supermarkets. For the past four weekends, he has been at the following stores wow’ing customers with samples of his Creole Potato Salad:
- Lucky Supermarkets: San Leandro, Castro Valley, Hercules, Pinole, and two locations in San Francisco.
Says Bill, “After twenty years they still love the flavor of my New Orleans salad.”
January 29th, New Orleans Bill will be at Lucky Supermarket in El Cerrito and IGA Supermarket in Fairfax, between 10AM and 3PM. Sunday January 30th, he will be at United Negro College Fund Annual Fundraiser in San Jose.
Stay tuned for an important announcement about New Orleans Bill Creole Potato Salad expanding in Southern California!
As part of a celebration of New Orleans at the San Francisco Jazz Heritage Center, UC Santa Cruz professors Lewis Watts and Eric Porter gave Katrina Anniversary lectures on the pre- and post- Katrina culture of New Orleans. The lectures were very interesting but how did they leave out the soul of New Orleans culture – THE FOOD!
AND… there wasn’t any gumbo, or red beans and rice at the reception afterwards. There were bands playing New Orleans music and second lining in Yoshi’s lobby. But again, WHERE WAS THE FOOD?
Therefore, New Orleans Bill told Board Vice Chairman Linda Parker Pennington that he would provide his New Orleans Creole Potato Salad, Crawfish Pie, and rum-sauce bread pudding to the San Francisco Jazz Heritage Center future events.
Made an appearance with Lucky supermarkets Art & Soul booth on August 21st and 22nd – stood in front of their booth, and sampled the Art & Soul crowd my Creole Potato Salad which Lucky has been selling for 20 years.
Lucky sold 140-pounds of New Orleans Bill Creole Potato Salad.
In my opinion, Lucky has never left the inner city market and they understand the demographic. Therefore, the highlight of the festival was the thousands of $1 WATERMELON slices they sold.
Do you eat crawfish or crayfish?
Do you pronounce it CRAW-fish or CRAY-fish?
Growing up in New Orleans, we New Orleanians called ’em crawfish. What do YOU call them? Visit my Facebook page and comment.

Did my New Orleans Creole Potato Salad demonstration at Bill Pickett Rodeo in Bakersfield, California. Why? To promote my salad that’s in the Bakersfield Albertsons Supermarkets (7900 White Lane, 8200 Stockdale Highway, 1520 Brundage Lane, and 3500 Panama Lane).
Temperature a blazing 99 degrees. Gave out Mardi Gras beads and salad samples to crowd.
They even love New Orleans in Bakersfield! Interesting note: I ran into some Katrina displaced people. They said Bakersfield is hot but still not as hot as New Orleans – because there is no humidity in Bakersfield.
Saturday, July 3rd, 2010 – Oakland, California – Farmer Joe’s Supermarket
Gave out samples of my creole potato salad and rocked the store!
New customers raved, “That was the best potato salad I’ve ever had!”
Those who had my salad before, were happy to finally meet the person behind the New Orleans salad.
The next food demonstration is in Bakersfield, California, July 15th at the Bill Pickett Rodeo. I will be giving out free samples of my Creole potato salad and letting folks know they can get it at Albertsons and Green Frog supermarkets in Bakersfield.
Yeah! A taste of New Orleans in Bakersfield.
Oh by the way, new customers Village Market (5885 Broadway Terrace) and Tomm’s Bar-B-Q & Deli (3446 Market St) in Oakland, California now sells my Creole potato salad.
