The New Orleans Culinary and Cultural Preservation Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to benefit hospitality industry members, produces Tales of the Cocktail annually. Its mission is to preserve the rich history of the restaurants and bars of New Orleans and the unique culture of dining and drinking famous to the city, while educating locals, visitors, and the hospitality industry about this culinary heritage.

The New Orleans Culinary and Cultural Preservation Society developed a program in 2007, to educate the hospitality industry, the greater community and visitors about New Orleans’ culinary history. Save Our Cemeteries presented a course on the history of prominent restaurant proprietors in New Orleans buried in historic Metairie Cemetery and now tour guides have developed a tour script on the topic and will provide guided “culinary history tours” of the cemetery. The New Orleans Culinary and Cultural Preservation Society underwrote and promotes the complimentary tours, a collaborative effort by the two 501©3 non-profit organizations.
