Part 2 of our chat with Jay Ducote, the unofficial food mayor of Baton Rouge. Whereas our first episode talked about Jay’s transition from typical office worker to food TV celebrity, this episode focuses on food travel. And, in particular BBQ and food travel.
Talking BBQ With Jay Ducote
According to Jay Ducote, the self proclaimed BBQ connoisseur, where is the best place to travel in the US for BBQ? Let’s just say, it involves beef, beef ribs, and brisket. Any guesses? Listen to the podcast.
Well, we also talk BBQ pork, because we can’t have a single episode of this culinary podcast without Eric talking about pork.
Talking Food Travel With Jay Ducote
Our chat with Jay quickly turned from BBQ to Louisiana food specialties, including a special local sausage. We don’t want to give too much away as there will be special episode and blog post later about boudin. Jay also provides his advice on what to eat in Baton Rouge, including oysters which rival those available in New Orleans.
We talked with Jay about local Baton Rouge chefs and their restaurants, focusing on local cuisine and use of fresh, local ingredients. We also talk about the possibility of Indian fusion tacos in Baton Rouge and the occupational hazards of being a food travel blogger.
Tweet to Jay and let him know you heard about him on our culinary travel podcast! Jay, like us, always wonders “Is there anyone out there listening?”
