In this celebration of Louisiana’s Cajun culture, complete with Zydeco music and a crawfish boil, Bourdain goes off the beaten path and takes part in the less familiar Mardi Gras traditions of the region’s history stemming from the French Middle Ages. Donning a conical hat, mask and colorful fringed costume, the host participates in the day long Courir de Mardi Gras in Mamou. Meals include a home cooked meal in Grand Coteau, lunch at Laura’s 2 in Lafayette with creole cowboys, and boudin & cracklings at Billy’s in Opelousas.
Crazy costumes, horse riding and powerful drinking in this episode. After the celebration the next morning Anthony was too hungover to even eat. He said it was one of the worse hangovers he ever experienced.
The extremely inebriated Cajuns still had the ability to ride their ponies standing up.
