When Louisiana's marshes and the Gulf of Mexico are your backyard, you can't help but capitalize on the amazing bounty of food at your fingertips. A trip to this part of the state means you're in store for a spectacle of Louisiana seafood like you've never experienced! From local sodas to clawing crabs, the Bayou Bounty installment of the Louisiana Culinary Trails video series shows eateries defending the world from bland food one bite at a time. This trail represents the heart of Acadiana, Lafayette, and follows the bayous and spillway down through New Iberia to Morgan City. Take a minute to listen to Chef Brian Blanchard of Cafe Jo Jo's, Chef Jeremy Conner of Village Café, Chef Richard & Lori Hurst from Little River Inn, Cecil Hymel from McIllhenny Co., and Abi Falgout of Bread & Circus Provisions boast their Cajun flair.
