. Rolands Mini Mart in Bourg sells the most amazing crayfish pies. Big Mike’s BBQ Smoke House in Houma has ribs, brisket, everything you could possibly pull off a cow. There’s also Schmoopy’s in Dulac, which has incredible gumbo. Right near there is the Chauvin Sculpture Garden by the artist Kenny Hill. It’s filled with about 100 concrete sculptures: blue-skinned angels, red-robed knights, Jesus figures in jeans, towers and gates. It’s one of the most unexpected things you’ll see in the bayou.

When Emeril was the chef at Commander's Palace he would go out in the country and stop to talk to folks on their front porch resting trying to find good cajun recipes.
