Emeril’s Boudin, Bourbon, and Beer – 2015
(BoudinLink 11.15) This past weekend the Emeril Lagasse Foundation held their annual boudin themed fund raiser (Boudin, Bourbon and Beer) in New Orleans. Culinary scouts in the Crescent City began taking note of boudin just a few years ago and, like from a link laden rice cooker, the trend has been picking up steam. Emeril’s ode to Cajun Country’s link is an extravagant (though totally accessible . . . with a ticket) celebration of great food and drink, rocking music, and joie de vive that took place next to the Superdome in Champion’s Square. It is also worth noting that the event raised $3 MILLION for children’s charities. Wow!
With over 50 top chefs offering sample sized portions of their most creative takes on boudin it is nearly impossible to sample them all. Nevertheless, we took a shot at it and now offer our own critical insight into the 6 most noteworthy boudin, and not-so-boudiny, offerings at this great event.

Boudin, Bourbon, and Beer is a fantastic event filled with great food, great music, and raising money for a great cause. This year’s event was a sell-out affair so, we suggest you get your tickets early for #EmerilBBB16!!!
