After several days of rain, we were getting "cabin fever" and decided to venture out to find some fun. The Cajun Hot Sauce Festival was still going on in New Iberia, La., so we took a ride to check it out. It was in full swing when we arrived and Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys were rockin' the crowd! We really had a blast and the food was to die for cher! Cest bon!
The annual Hot Sauce Festival celebrates all hot sauce, but is partial to Tabasco Sauce, which is made not far from the festival fairgrounds, on the McIlhenny Pepper Plantation. There were booths selling crawfish poboys, spinach and crawfish bread bowls, and seafood jambalaya.
The crawfish poboys were fabulous and one of the best that I have ever had! And of course, there were booths displaying and selling all kinds of hot sauce, from gourmet Habanero to authenic Cajun. A very pleasant and fun outing on a beautiful spring day in Cajun Country.
Let the good times roll! Festival International "coming right up" in just 2 days! See ya'll there!
Welcome to Cajun country and to my blog. I am a Cajun gal who was born and raised on the Bayou Vermilion. The area is rich in history and culture and is a very fun place to live. Fabulous cuisine, incredible music, and fun loving people with a joie de vivre, (love of life). You will learn about the Acadian French people and their culture, and best of all, you will learn how to prepare the world famous Cajun cuisine. Lassiez les bon temps rouler, cher!
