Meet the New Sauce(s): Tony Chachere's Sandwich-Ready Summer Line


Tony Chachere's is hoping to strike condiment gold, again. The company knows you use their Creole seasoning to replace salt, pepper and other spicier ingredients. Now, they're providing replacements for ketchup, mustard and mayo, too. Troy Landry of Swamp People took to the steps of Long's House earlier this week to unveil the new quartet of sauces designed for sandwiches, or whatever you want to use them on. Instead of taking the word of a guy who shoots gators all day, we wanted to try them for ourselves. So, Tony's was kind enough to send us some samples, and chat with us about the new product line.


Spice Wars: Tony Chachere's Sues Big Easy Foods Over Trademark


Updated 9/27, 10 a.m.

Once, Tony Chachere and Big Easy Foods were brothers in spicy sodium-infused Cajun food from a box. Big Easy Foods (based in...Lake Charles) licensed that cute Chachere's likeness for some of its food products. But, last year, the two parted ways, and it's been anything but mild since then. In a lawsuit filed today, Chachere's is accusing Big Easy of infringing on their trademark, and undercutting their business, reports Eater NOLA.

'Makin' Groceries Card Game' Returns After 20+ Years



In New Orleans, amassing a bounty of groceries is not a passive act. Buying is an act of people sacrificing the toil and creativity behind their goods to a third party. Around here – as the old saying goes – we make groceries.

 

More than 20 years ago, the unique experience of acquiring the weekly food stash in New Orleans was captured in card game form with the Makin' Groceries Card Game. But, like the Schwegmann’s and K&B Drug Stores that stocked the games, they trickled away in the early 1990s. By the mid-90s, they weren’t available in the retail world at all.

Turducken Demystified



Turducken! The very name of the mystical bird(s) inspires fantastical tales as if it were a unicorn or a ten pound crawfish. Louisiana’s own specialty dish that combines turkey, duck and chicken, is no myth. Nevertheless, plenty of stories swirl about the famed protein powerhouse.
