LouisianaCooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

Not long ago, there was a scientific study that ranked Louisiana as the nation’s happiest state. Many reasons likely led to this distinction, but it's pretty sure the incredible Louisiana cuisine played a role. Bite into a beignet and see if a smile doesn't break out. In Louisiana, the people don’t just eat. They dine with gusto. Louisiana foods are a connection to the state's diverse heritage, one that includes French, Spanish, African, and German influences. It is over a meal that Louisianans come together in celebration, whether it’s a Mardi Gras gumbo or simply a Friday night crawfish boil. On a Louisiana culinary vacation, you'll find the quintessential Louisiana flavors, and you’ll also meet the people behind these great dishes.
