Are you a fan of traditional Cajun dishes? Chef John Folse & Company creates mouth-watering entrees that highlight the powerful flavors of Louisiana. Find some of their most popular items within our stores, and get exceptional taste brought right to your table. Why not add Chef John Folse’s Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, Seafood Gumbo, and Crawfish Etouffee to your shopping list now and enjoy the tastes of Creole cuisine without the cooking? 

Chicken and andouille sausage take center stage in the Louisiana-style gumbo. But if you prefer different flavors, the Seafood Gumbo includes crab, shrimp, and okra infused with classic Cajun seasonings. Chef John Folse’s Crawfish Etouffee is certainly a local favorite because it masters the signature flavors of Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and Donaldsonville, LA, in a hearty roux, juicy crawfish tails, and powerful herbs.
