Capital Cravings. Hands on!
If it’s seafood you’re craving, Tony’s Seafood provides the best live and boiled seafood in Baton Rouge. And if you’re in the capital city on a Saturday, stop by the Red Stick Farmers Market and stock up on locally grown, in-season produce and food items. Keeping on trend with locally owned, get a true boutique experience at Strands Café with tea service.
But if you’re looking to get your hands dirty, put your cooking skills to the test with leisure cooking classes at Louisiana Culinary Institute, open hearth cooking demonstrations at Magnolia Mound Plantation, or learn how to make cane syrup at the LSU Rural Life Museum.
New to the Baton Rouge food and beverage scene are Food Truck Wround Up and Tin Roof Brewery. Every Wednesday food trucks gather to serve up delicious food to hungry folks, and Tin Roof Brewery delivers handcrafted brews with a natural, Southern flavor.
And if you’ve never experienced the day-long festivity that is tailgating in Baton Rouge, be sure to add it to your to-do list. This time-honored tradition, whether it’s before a football game or a concert, is a unique experience that should be had by all.
The flavor of Baton Rouge is sure to get your taste buds tingling.
