Classic Louisiana Cooking
When you think about Louisiana cuisine, Gumbo is one of the first dishes that comes to mind. In fact, Louisianans love the dish so much that they named gumbo the official state cuisine in 2004. Since 1973, Bridge City has celebrated gumbo every October with its Bridge City Gumbo Festival. Nicknamed the Gumbo Capital of the World, Bridge City honors this traditional Louisiana dish with an entire weekend of festivities, including a gumbo cook-off, live music, carnival rides, games, arts & crafts, and more. You don’t need a Cajun cookbook or heirloom Cajun recipes to try the Chicken Sausage Gumbo festival recipe from Louisiana Hometown. Without doubt, you’ll fall in love from the very first bite with this classic take on The Pelican State staple.
Louisiana is a border state to the Gulf of Mexico, so it, of course, has a wonderfully rich seafood tradition. There’s nothing quite like a fried fish recipe from the Cajun cookbooks of Louisiana home cooks. Visit the St. Tammany Crab Festival in Lacombe to experience Louisiana seafood at its finest. Hosted the last weekend of June, this event is the largest crab-themed festival in the South. Festivalgoers will enjoy live entertainment, a gumbo competition, games, carnival rides, and an interactive cultural village. Local restaurateurs also provide delicious seafood and crab dishes for visitors to enjoy as they party. The festival is family friendly, so come out and enjoy a weekend of fun and food. Sample the taste of Louisiana seafood with the Easy Crawfish Étouffée recipe from Louisiana Hometown. Served over rice, this Cajun-Creole classic will have your taste buds swooning.
