Crawfish Festival in Breaux Bridge 2007 article

Photos from the 2007 Crawfish Festival in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana

 


  • My husband, I, and our friends (Birgitte's family) enjoyed the 2007 Crawfish Festival in Breaux Bridge. We had a wonderful time and ate crawfish prepared in a variety of ways, from boiled to fried tails to boudin. Cajun and Zydeco bands played while we looked around. Many vendors sold their wares. I took photos and talked to the people. Everyone was friendly. I loved to see everyone dancing to the bands, smiling faces and holding hands. The Crawfish Festival is not only about the food, but the local Cajun and Creole cultures. I'm so proud to be a daughter in-law of Louisiana.

  • I remember when I had boiled crawfish for the first time; we lived in Lafayette. I stared at the crawfish for a second and wondered how they would taste. They were not too big, but so cute, red and looked like a lobster; I called them "baby lobster." When I tasted the first crawfish, I was reminded of the rice field crabs in my hometown, Sisaket, Thailand.

  • The juiciness, the fat, and the flavor inside the crawfish was like the rice field crab, and the meat looked like a shrimp but was tender like lobster. I loved crawfish because it contained three flavors: rice field crab, shrimp, and lobster. I told my husband that I loved crawfish, and he was proud that I could eat Cajun food with him.


  • Later my husband bought a 50-pound sack of live crawfish. When I opened the sack and saw the crawfish crawling around inside I was happy, and decided how I was going to cook these lovely crawfish. I made papaya salad (Som-tum) and added live crawfish; it tasted so good. Then I boiled some and dipped their sweet tails in a spicy Thai chili sauce. Later I stir fried crawfish with Thai basil. I created so many dishes to fit my Thai taste.


  • I am proud to say that I love crawfish. If I could bring something from America back to Thailand, I would choose crawfish, and raise them near my hometown, where we have large rice fields and plenty of water from the river. It would be nice if we could raise delicious crawfish for the people in my village. I hope one day to do that.
