The abundance of fantastic food to be found throughout Louisiana can be a little overwhelming for some visitors, particularly if they haven’t sampled our fabulous indigenous cuisine before. How will you decide where to go and what to eat? To help you manage the choices, we suggest using Louisiana's Culinary Trails as guideposts. The Louisiana Office of Tourism and the makers of TABASCO® hot pepper sauce have laid out seven regional “trails” that traverse byways, prairies, marshlands and waterways that are great sources of some of the finest food you’ll ever enjoy. Discover some of the chefs and restaurants who are keeping the tradition of great food alive and thriving in Louisiana.
Located in St. Bernard Parish just down river from New Orleans, Chalmette is home to the Chalmette Battlefield. The battlefield is the site of the 1815 Battle of New Orleans which is considered the last great battle in the War of 1812. Visit the battlefield and monuments and then head over to Rocky and Carlos for their world-famous macaroni and cheese.
