Champagne’s Breaux Bridge Bakery

It’s not often you get the opportunity to stroll into a bakery that’s been open for over 120 years, so on our way through Breaux Bridge, LA we decided to stop in for a quick visit. Champagne’s Bakery first opened its doors in 1888, and its been under continuous ownership and operation by the Champagne family since that time. Stepping inside is a trip back in time to a bygone era. White washed walls and the aroma of fresh baked goods fill the air, while a heavily accented Cajun lady greeted us with a genuine smile.

 

While Champagne’s selection is fairly limited, the bulk of their business comes from their famous “pink cookies”, we sampled a handful of treats delicately arranged beneath the glass display cases. The pink cookies are bite sized size sugar cookies with a cream filling, which have a unique lemony flavor that belies their pink color. In addition to the pink cookies, we picked up an assortment of other treats, only a fraction of which successfully made it out of the store. I also noticed a tray of meat pies splayed on the counter, and made sure to sample my third meat treat of the day when the lady at the counter graciously offered to heat it up for me.

Don’s Specialty Meats: Who dat? Boudin!

If it’s made of meat and it’s Cajun, rest assured that you can find it at Don’s. Being a purveyor of all things meat, coupled with a curiosity about Cajun fare and a thirst for roadside culinary adventure and you can bet that we were stopping at Don’s at all costs. As we passed through Carencro, Louisiana we exited off the highway for a quick detour to the meat shop. Conveniently located across the street from a used car lot and a boiled crawfish shanty, Bryce, Kate and I elbowed our way into Don’s on Friday afternoon with our meat pie breakfast barely settled.

 

Part convenience store and part butcher shop, Don’s had about half a dozen items on the menu that I had never even heard of much less tried. Still burdened by the hearty breakfast, I only had room for a small snack at Don’s, so I opted for a Cajun delicacy that I had heard a lot of hoopla about: Boudin. Boudin (pronounced Boo-dan for those unfamiliar with the nuances of the Louisiana drawl) is a spiced sausage stuffed with a combination of pork (including organ meats liver and heart) and rice, and is a staple of Cajun foods. I took one wrapped to go from Don’s and enjoyed it in the truck. It had a pleasing snap from a natural casing, along with a robust meaty taste that finished with quite a kick from a combination of some spices and peppers.

 

 

It was my first introduction to Boudin and I’d certainly come back for more, given my general affinity for all encased meats. There’s a long list of Don’s delicacies on my list for future visits, and you should give it a try too.

Lasyone’s Restaurant: Meat Pies with a side of Meat Pie

If you follow the blog closely you may recall from last year that I was rather crestfallen that we would be unable to sample the notorious meat pies at Lasyone’s restaurant in Natchitoches. Since I had spent the better part of the last year practicing how you actually pronounce Natchitoches (it’s Nack-ih-tish by the way), I assured myself that this year the meat pies would not elude me again The place is an anchor in Natchitoches however they keep some rather elusive hours so our trip out to Baton Rouge required military precision to hit this unique Louisiana landmark.

 

We arrived for a mid morning breakfast and settled into a table without any crowds. I took an obligatory glance over the menu, despite the fact that I had already fawned over it online for the last two weeks. When the waitress ambled over I promptly ordered up a meat pie breakfast with a side of – you guessed it- more meat pie. In fact some of us (Kate) were even wise enough to skip the breakfast part entirely and order meat pies exclusively. Consistent with all great places simplicity prevails at Lasyone’s as there is only one choice of meat pie on the menu which the waitress informed us was a combination of spiced beef and pork.

 

The pies are most aptly described as a fried empanada. However, unlike empanadas which can tend to get a bit dry, the Lasyone’s meat pie is moist throughout and needs no condiment to ease it down. They have a wonderful crispy crust that flakes away to a moist spiced ground meat center with just the right ratio of crust to filling to make them satisfying but not heavy. There is nothing complex or extravagant about the meatpies at Lasyone’s, they’re just good, simple food.
