People not from the South tend to think of anything below the Mason-Dixon as being stereotypically southern and that all southerners including our food choices are the same. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is especially evident if you take time to trek across the state of Louisiana. And that’s exactly what we discovered recently on our Louisiana I10 Foodie Road-trip.
Flying into New Orleans from Nashville we decided to skip the Crescent City and deadhead west to Lake Charles on the Louisiana-Texas Border. Over the next few days we worked our way back to New Orleans stopping along the way to make new friends and sample some traditional and not-so-traditional Louisiana delights. Our biggest challenge was too many delicious destinations, not enough time.
