Boudin On Display
On their blog earlier this month, Louisiana’s St. Landry Parish did a post about the Southern Foodways Alliance‘s new boudin exhibit. Never before have we heard the words “boudin” and “exhibit” in the same sentence. South Louisianans just eat tons of the rice and pork mixture stuffed in a sausage casing and don’t always think about where it comes from. But starting tomorrow, visitors to the Prairie Acadian Cultural Center in Eunice can find out.
“Boudin: The Traveling Exhibit” includes oral histories of storied Louisiana boudin makers to tell the tale of one of South Louisiana’s most iconic foods. Funded in part by The McIlhenny Co., makers of Tabasco, the project also includes The Southern Boudin Trail created by the SFA with close to 50 oral histories available online.
See “Boudin” through July 23 at the Acadian Cultural Center, open Tuesday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Afterwards, pick up a link at one of the shops featured, like Best Stop or Mowata Store.
