The Bayou

The French-speaking Acadian people were expelled from what would become Canada’s Maritime Provinces in the 1750s and 60s.  Many of them settled in what we now know as Louisiana… where they became known as “Cajuns.” Become immersed in their rich Acadian culture firsthand when you leave New Orleans for the heart of French Lousian.  Join a private, traditional “Bal de Maison” (house party) porch lunch, complete with great home-cooked Cajun food, songs and storytelling. It’s a culinary experience you won’t want to miss.
