Tiger Deaux-Nuts Baton Rouge

Nearly all of our our podcast episodes are scheduled in advance. We know who we intend to speak with, we execute a small back ground research, and possess a listing of topics to talk about. This episode ended up being simply not that sort of episode.

When we bit to the very first small break fast sandwich at Tiger Deaux-Nuts Baton Rouge, we knew we had to master the tale behind this little bit of donut heaven in Louisiana.

Top Breakfast Sandwich in Baton Rouge

Jeff of Tiger Deaux-Nuts explained precisely what had been on one of the best breakfast sandwiches we’ve ever consumed. To start, it included a particular sausage, called boudin, plus it ended up being sandwiched between two slices of the famous donuts. It was so delicious I didn’t also should add ketchup! Locals say it generates a “mockery of the McGriddle.”

Jeff had been a guy with a fantasy. A donut fantasy. On this week’s episode of our meals travel podcast, not only did we mention a locally famous break fast sandwich, but we discovered exactly how he came up with the thought of producing an artisan donut store in Baton Rouge.

And, what’s utilizing the name? What is a deaux-nut anyway? It’s the Cajun means of spelling donut. Well, not formally, nonetheless it’s a Cajun use words. Trust united states.

The American Road Trip

First American Road Trip#USChowDown – An American Road Trip

We have several weeks of great culinary stories coming to you on the podcast. We’ve already published a few, but there are more to come. This episode is just an overview of our thoughts on the #USChowDown, and how we are still a little surprised that we survived our first American road trip!

#USChowDown was a huge success, even if we returned to Bangkok a little wider around the waist than when we left. But, if we came back after eating all that food thinner than before, that would have been strange. We ate great food across the Gulf Coast, had a BBQ party hosted in our honor in Macon, and ate at one of the top restaurants in the US. So, not too shabby, uh?

We even survived two weeks with family, visiting Eric’s sisters in North Carolina, my sisters wedding, and spent time with Eric’s mother in New Jersey, who watched us spend a weekend eating New Jersey pizza. We tell all these stories, and more, on this week’s episode about our first American road trip.

 

Talking American Craft Beer at Parish Brewing Company

Parish Brewing Company

We are craft beer novices, as we’ve mentioned before when we talked craft beer with The Opportunistic Travelers on episode 09 of season 2. But, during our #USChowDown 6 week long US culinary road trip, we wanted to learn as much as possible about American craft beer. And, we were schooled in Louisiana, at Parish Brewing Company.

Parish Brewing CompanyAfter a trip to Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company in Mississippi, and a week of drinking craft beer in New Orleans, I think my taste buds are getting the hang of American craft beer. I am still not a fan of the IPAs, which are a little too hoppy for my tastes. But, I’ve been enjoying quite a few of the beer we’ve tasted.

When we walked into Parish Brewing Company in Broussard, Louisiana, we were greeted in a bustling Tap Room by the owner, Andrew, and his adorable puppy, Murphy. Andrew gave us a tour of the brewery. And, we tasted every one of their 12 (!) American craft beer varieties, and I enjoyed quite a lot of them.

Parish Brewing CompanyOn this week’s episode of the food travel podcast, we sit down with Andrew to talk hop wizardry, how he ended up in the American craft beer industry, and why the food in Lafayette, Louisiana is so darned special.

Although right now Parish Brewing Company only distributes their craft beer within Louisiana, it is easy to find all over the state. In particular, search for my favorite, the Parish Brewing Company Canebrake, and Eric’s favorite, the Everie IPA.

Just before we arrived in the Gulf, horrible rains plagued Louisiana, with the Baton Rouge area being hit the hardest. It was a constant topic of discussion, with many people still out of their homes over a month later. Despite this, our experience along the Gulf Coast was incredible. I hope that our readers will visit there and experience the cuisine and the hospitality for themselves. After disasters like this, tourism is more important than ever to keep small businesses alive, and to pump up the economy of the region. If you’re not able to visit, please consider donating to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation or Operation BBQ Relief, to support the relief efforts in the region.

 

Biscuits and Po’boys – Mississippi Gulf Coast Eats

Mississippi Gulf Coast Eats

We ate so many great meals in our few days exploring the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Neither of us had ever been to Mississippi before, and frankly, as Northerners, we probably carried some preconceived notions of what Mississippi is all about. But, within the few days we spent exploring the best Mississippi Gulf Coast eats, all of these notions were dispelled.

The Greenhouse on Porter

Mississippi Gulf Coast Eats Greenhouse on PorterOn this week’s episode of our food travel podcast, we sit down with Kait and Jessie, the partners behind Greenhouse on Porter in Ocean Springs. Not only are they making some amazing biscuits, but in a few short years, they have created a neighborhood cafe, set, yes, inside a green house on Porter Ave. We had breakfast there three days in a row, and each day had loads of great conversations with locals, who welcomed us with open arms.

It was an entirely pleasant, and uniquely Southern experience for us. We also chatted about their locally famous, annual biscuit tournament. This was a special little discussion for us, too, because we named our #USChowDown Kia Optima “Biscuit.” It all comes around to the food. And, although Kait and Jessie have no problem sharing their biscuit recipes, their recipe for their famous “fluff” is a secret, which Kait describes simply as “magic.”

Taranto’s Crawfish

Mississippi Gulf Coast Eats TarantosWe also sit down with Gindy Taranto of Taranto’s Crawfish House in D’Iberville, Mississippi. Set on the corner of a country road, and packed to the brim during a busy weekday lunch, they have some of the best po’boy sandwiches in the region. We talk with her about what it means to make a mean po’boy, along with the reputation the Gulf Coast has for crawfish. We also talk about the effect Hurricane Katrina had on them opening their business, a constant theme with almost everyone we met along the Gulf Coast.
