I know EscapeHatchDallas readers are a sophisticated group of travelers who visit Louisiana regularly. I want to tell you about some things that you may find interesting about our state.
You’re probably already familiar with the restaurants and cuisine of notable Louisiana chefs like John Besh, Donald Link, Susan Spicer, Paul Prudhomme and Emeril Lagasse. But Louisiana’s culinary accomplishments go beyond these wonderful celebrity chefs. Restaurants like Root, Patois, and Sylvain in New Orleans; The French Press and Pamplona in Lafayette; and Sage and Cotton in Monroe. But so many culinary treasures are found off the beaten path en route from one city to the other. That’s what makes a road trip through our state so much fun for a gourmand. You can find a great po‘boy, a spicy meat pie, or warm cracklins as you drive throughout our state.
A visit to Louisiana promises unforgettable memories made around tables full of the most delicious cuisine in the world. And while you are here, why not reel in your own catch of the day, as you enjoy some of the best recreational fishing in America on our Gulf Coast and in countless inland marshes, bayous and swamps.
I invite you to come learn about our history and traditions, attend one of 400 plus festivals and share in our passion for the best cuisine and seafood on Earth. I know you will love what you find here, and that you’ll be back to explore more.
