Here Come Da Judge. Here Come Da Judge…Again
The Louisiana Travelin’ Man (that’s me) will be hitting the road, wearing my favorite judge's robe (actually I’ll be wearing my straw hat) and carrying my gavel (camera) to judge three different cook-offs. So why not join me?

Black Pot Festival
Acadian Village in Lafayette
I was a judge at this festival last year and the event was fantastic. Great Louisiana Music, a great location and great Louisiana food. The cost of admission on Saturday is $30 and you get to taste all the dishes that are being judged (last year we judged over 50 different dishes). The music begins at 11:30 am and goes to midnight.

St. Bernard Parish Battle for the Paddle Jambalaya Cook-off
Docville Farm – Oak Grove, Violet
The Louisiana Travelin’ Man can’t just eat Gumbo (well, he can) and with all the great Louisiana foods, Jambalaya is at the top of the list. There will be several teams cooking their favorite Jambalaya recipe in order to receive “The Paddle”.  Violet is less than 13 miles from the French Quarter and for $10 (children under 12 free), you can taste all the contestants' Jambalaya and listen to some local music.
Details on the winners will be posted mid-November.
Hope to see you there.
