The South East Food Bank got a boost from a benefit golf tournament at Bayou Din that attracted hundreds of supporters to help feed the area’s hungry.
People at the course did not go hungry, because several groups showed up with their best offerings to refresh the golfers. I met some wonderful people and got some great culinary tips to share:
Market Basket Smokehouse
Chuck Barbee of Market Basket said Mid-County residents are enjoying the new smokehouses in their stores.
“They love it. They really do,” he said.
Shoppers across the border in Louisiana have smoked boudain kitchens and Barbee said shoppers line up to buy it in Lake Charles. The spicy links fared well in a little competition they call Boudin Wars in Sulphur, La., he said.
Look for Market Basket web site opportunities for shoppers to share their recipes.
Olive this dip
Shirley Corbin from the Food Bank told me of a twist her husband loves in boudain dip. In addition to smoked or original boudain and sour cream, he loves chopped olives mixed in. I recall this Nederland family likes them ripe, but I’d try green or black, because she made it sound so good. Fritos, crackers or whatever you like will carry a scoop of this blend to your taste buds.
The Brock team was proud of their barbecue sliders, and they had a right to be. I was proud I didn’t eat more of them then I should have.
