Food & Nightlife
Saveur magazine posted an excellent video about one of my favorite regions of Louisiana, Acadiana. The video really captures the passion people in that area have for food.
I know I tend to talk about food often on this blog but I just can't resist. It's one of our best assets. Anyone who has visited Louisiana can attest to wanting to come back and taste it all over again. Southern Living is an expert on the South’s best offerings and they are right on, nominating not one, but two of Louisiana’s cities in its South’s Tastiest Town Awards.
This week, Travel + Leisure magazine announced America's best cities for foodies and gave New Orleans the top spot. While we are not surprised by this designation, we are honored and appreciate being recognized for our one-of-a-kind cuisine.
This week map publisher Rand McNally announced the city of Lafayette as one of six finalists in the “Best for Food” category of its "Best of the Road" contest. It doesn’t surprise me that out of more than 600 nominated towns, Lafayette would be among the best. As a finalist, Lafayette will host an official “food team” between June 23 and July 15.
