TABASCO ICE CREAM
By Linda Kissam, ‘Food, Wine & Shopping Diva’


From swamp boat tours to rum tasting, zydeco breakfasts and tours of the Tabasco Factory, travel writer Linda Kissam ‘Food, Wine & Shopping Diva’, Benjamin J. Berthelot – President & CEO of Lafayette Convention and Visitors Commission, and Captain Tucker Friedman – Owner of Atchafalaya Basin Landing & Marina, share what makes Lafayette such a unique and fun destination, on Big Blend Radio.

Who knew a tour of the TABASCO® Pepper Sauce Factory would be so fun? Celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2018 this is quite an adventure. Wear flat shoes, there’s lots of walking and tourists everywhere. It’s a haven for bus tours.  The back story on the beloved Pepper Sauce you see everywhere is fascinating. The exhibits are fresh and new. Guests can view artifacts from TABASCO® Sauce’s founding family; see the growing process of pepper plants from seedlings to full-grown; visit the mash warehouse for a peek at the aging process; view and smell the aromas of the stirring vats; and learn about the company’s bottling and shipping process around the world. Worth the $5 ticket fee.

Cooking School at Tabasco’s 1868 was a memorable activity for me. The funny, obstinate, quirky Chef Lionel Robin is a hoot to take a cooking class from.  He keeps the one hour class lively as he shares secrets for recreating TABASCO® inspired Southern cuisine. I learned a lot from this class, including how to cook with Tabasco with a light hand. Each dish he prepared was tasty and not overdone. As the class explored new twists on traditional flavors we laughed our way through lunch.  The recipes I received are simple and doable at home.  This is a must do.
