Living Local at the French Food Festival

Let’s face it; whenever we come together down the bayou, it’s all about having a good time. There is no truer statement associated with our festival culture in Louisiana’s Cajun Bayou. The French Food Festival exemplifies this Cajun truism and any festival with the word “food” in the name won’t disappoint! Here is a local perspective on how to “do” the French Food Festival. Ready, let's GEAUX!
 
START PLANNING YOUR SECOND FOOD SELECTION WHILE IN LINE FOR THE FIRST

We live to eat! Another Cajun truth! Fifty percent (a very safe estimate) of your time will be spent eating at the French Food Festival; the other fifty will be visiting with family and friends (with food in your hand). This festival celebrates a variety of Cajun cuisine, alligator sauce piquant, shrimp boulettes, etouffee, jambalaya, grillades, crawfish pasta, gumbo, did I say shrimp boulettes! Once you have decided which tasty offering to start with, get in line. It’s perfectly normal and very wise to start planning your next selection while waiting in line for the first. It’s what locals do! If you are visiting our Cajun Bayou for the first time then don’t be shy cher’ (sha!) We “make friends” easily, love to talk and share our wonderful cuisine!
