We are excited to introduce the Boudin, Bourbon & Beer Chef Spotlight series! This year, we asked a few of our participating chefs to pair their Boudin, Bourbon & Beer menu item with one of the many beer options that will be available from Abita. This week, we are featuring Chef Cory Bahr of Heritage Catering in Monroe.
BOUDIN, BOURBON & BEER DISH:
Smoked Duck Boudin, Foie Gras, Vanilla Pickled Beets, Charred Pineapple
PAIRS BEST WITH:
Abita Bourbon Street Coffee Stout
INSPIRATION FOR YOUR DISH ?:
Tis the season for duck, this time of year up in my Neck of the woods everyone is gearing up for a good duck hunt. What better way to celebrate this fine foul than making boudin with them.
FAVORITE OFF-DUTY DRINK?:
Straight bourbon with an Abita Andygator chaser.
Wu Tang Clan, Sturgill Simpson, Tool, Amy Winehouse
WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED FOR AT BOUDIN, BOURBON & BEER THIS YEAR?:
Getting together with fellow chefs that I haven't seen in a while to share stories, cocktails and make new memories.
