Anyone who has not tried southern Creole cuisine at Carolyn’s Creole Kitchen is in for a treat.
For over 20 years, Carolyn Silas-Sams has served hot garlic crab cooked creole style, chicken and sausage jambalaya, homemade Cajun gumbo and more.
Silas-Sams and her husband Sennix recently won the award for making the best gumbo at this year’s Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton.
Inspired by her mother’s cooking, she made a special holiday dinner for actor and good friend Danny Glover.
Experience a down-home four-course garlic crab dinner and Andre Thierry performing with Zydeco Magic Saturday, Dec. 8 from 6 p.m-11 p.m. at the West Oakland Senior Center, 1724 Adeline St. in Oakland.
