English chefs, students explores local culinary scene
THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — A group of renown British chefs and up-and-coming culinary students spent Nov. 14 in Lafourche Parish as part of a Louisiana culinary visit.
The group toured the Chef John Folse Culinary Institute at Nicholls State University, Bourgeois Meat Market in Thibodaux, Raceland Sugar Mill and Alzina's Kitchen in Galliano.
The idea for the trip came from a conversation between food historian Jessica Harris and chefs Jeremy Lee and Yotam Ottolenghi last year.
