Cajun dishes start with the best andouille
On December 7, 1993, Spuddy purchased Folse Seafood and Meat Market. From the time he was picking tomatoes in the fields at 8 years old, Spuddy knew he was one day going to be an Entrepreneur. The dream started at a very young age. Now the dream was being fulfilled.
Spuddy turned a little country grocery store/meat market/seafood market into what is known today as Spuddy’s Cajun Foods. In 1993, there was no restaurant in Vacherie where a family could dine in and have a meal. He was the first one to bring this back to Vacherie since the late 1980’s.
"This is not just a boring cooking class, this is an experience. Come cook with me and then lets eat!"
Spuddy's Cajun Cooking Experience is located about 50 miles outside of New Orleans in Vacherie, Louisiana.
As part of the German Coast, historically Vacherie has been a farming hub producing much of the food consumed in the city. The name Vacherie is derived from a French word meaning cowshed, as Vachiere was the center of beef production in the region.
Every year Vacherie hosts thousands of visitors touring Oak Alley, St. Joseph, and Laura Plantations.
