Many people visit south Louisiana to get a taste of the rich cultural heritage of the Creoles, Cajuns, and plantation country. Part of this heritage is the savory culinary tradition found only in south Louisiana, and Bocage Plantation is the perfect base-camp to set forth from in search of this legendary food.
Everything from gumbo, crawfish etouffee, and duck piquant to freshly caught seafood and fried catfish can be found a short drive from Bocage Plantation. Hymel’s Seafood Restaurant offers the best fried seafood on River Road while The Grapevine Cafe and Gallery in Donaldsonville has pecan-encrusted drum that is to die for.
In fact, if you book an extended stay at Bocage Plantation’s bed and breakfast, you might have the opportunity of befriending a local Cajun who will invite you over for a crawfish boil or a homemade pot of gumbo, made with the recipe that has been passed down in his family for generations!
Bocage is only an hour and a half from Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, which hosts the state’s largest crawfish festival every year.
A stay at Bocage Plantation will certainly please the most die-hard culinary enthusiasists, given it’s proximity to Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and other surrounding Cajun and Creole communities.
Enjoy the flavor of Cajun country!
