Citizens of New Orleans 9th Ward feel a proper sense of love for our town’s best ward. Do you see people walking around New Orleans wearing 15th Ward Strong shirts? No. I’ve never seen a 4th Ward t-shirt. Not once. When you live in the 9th Ward the feeling of community is so strong it’s hard to quantify.

Pull up stumps and move to the 9th. You’ll be glad ya did.

We just caught wind of a workshop out in Chauvin, Louisiana where you can learn how to make gumbo in the Houma Indian style.

This is intriguing as gumbo is one of our main points of interest in Louisiana cuisine and we have never heard of this particular technique.

We are out of town during this workshop. If you go please send us a field report with photographs.

April 7th 2019

10 am to 4 pm – festival hours. Time of gumbo demonstration TBD.

Chauvin Sculpture Garden, 5337 Bayouside Drive, Chauvin, Louisiana.
