Louisiana's Culinary Trails

Not long ago, there was a scientific study that ranked Louisiana as the nation’s happiest state.
Many reasons likely led to this distinction, but we’re pretty sure our incredible Louisiana cuisine played a role.
Bite into a beignet and see if a smile doesn’t break out.

Louisiana Culinary Trails

Our Louisiana roots run deep inside a culinary wonderland drawn from French, Spanish, African, Sicilian, Caribbean, Irish, German and American Indian cultures. Add a dash of country comfort and a pinch of sophistication, and you’ve got a recipe for the best food on the planet.

We don’t just eat and drink, we plan our lives around the culinary seasons. Just days after the New Year, Mardi Gras season ushers in the arrival of king cakes, followed by months of crawfish boils in the spring, slurping snoballs and cracking crabs in the summer, with football tailgating in the fall and warm gumbo as the weather turns cold. We’re waiting for you with open arms and aprons on, so grab a cold drink and let’s get busy.
