Andouille

Learn its origins in St. John the Baptist Parish, the Andouille Capital of the World

Andouille (an·dou·ille | \än-ˈdü-ē) was born here in the River Parishes as French and German culinary heritages combined. When you taste our andouille, you are tasting our culinary heritage. Be careful to not call it sausage – because of the coarseness of the ground pork, it’s not considered sausage by locals, it’s simply andouille.

Out here, andouille makers put their own unique stamp on seasonings, mixing them with the meat, then smoking it using a variety of woods such as pecan, oak, or the pit master’s secret combination. This ensures the finished product is as distinct as the small-town smokehouse in which it is made. Sliced andouille is a key ingredient in traditional Cajun/Creole dishes such as gumbo and jambalaya. Ever versatile, you’ll find it on everything from sandwiches to pizza.

Every October since 1972, the importance of andouille to our region has been celebrated at the annual Andouille Festival in LaPlace.
