At the muddied-over Festival Acadiens we sat through a demonstration on Cajun smoked meats presented by a charming lady from Poché's in Breaux Bridge. The next day we went out there and had a wonderful lunch of crayfish etouffée and barbecued chicken with excellent sides of the down-home sort. Then we went through the meat market at the front and bought andouille, smoked sausage, and tasso. Dropped ninety bucks on stuff the doc wouldn't approve of. I've already used some of the tasso and smoked sausage in a couple of beany deals, frozen andouille against gumbos to come. They ship, as you can see here. Acadiana is such an entertaining place.
