If you grew up in South Louisiana, rice and gravy was (and still is) a popular dish. The simplicity of rice and gravy is what has always made it the perfect go-to dinner: savory gravy made from meat, poultry, or seafood poured atop a plate of steaming white rice. That’s all it takes to satisfy a Cajun’s appetite!
If thinking about rice and gravy is making you hungry, you’re in luck. The Breaux Bridge Lions Club is hosting its annual Rice and Gravy Cookoff TODAY! Locals have registered to put their rice and gravy to the test and are currently cooking up big batches for all attendees to sample from now until 6 PM.
Head over to Parc du Pont in Breaux Bridge for all-you-can-eat rice and gravy and live music provided by Les Bons Sons, Nickeo’s Crustacean’s Band, and Brenda C & the Cajun Jammers. There are also fun activities for the kids! Tickets are $5 per entry. The winners of each cookoff category (meat, poultry, and seafood) will be announced at 4 PM!
Breaux Bridge Lions Club is part of a global service organization network whose mission is to provide community service and improve the lives of local youths, needy, and disabled. Learn more about the organization here.
