~Louisiana Culinary Trails
~It’s Carnival in Louisiana, and celebrations are happening all around the state in preparation for the big day—Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, on Feb. 21. Many folks associate Mardi Gras with beads and booze, but there’s so much more to this holiday, including some pretty delicious foods eaten in honor of the occasion.
Crowley native and host of “Cooking Up a Good Life” Chef Patrick Mould celebrates the holiday in Cajun Country, where Mardi Gras takes on a different personality from that of its New Orleans’ counterpart. We asked him to tell us more about his Mardi Gras memories and the food traditions associated with this time of year.
