K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen
Paul Prudhomme was once a country boy from Opelousas who hid his special seasoning packets in his chef’s coat and secretly flavoured dishes in the kitchens where he worked. He then spread his gospel of hot Cajun cooking as head chef at Commander’s Palace. Soon, Prudhomme became the most famous chef in America. At K-Paul’s, Prudhomme still makes his flavourful updates of the Cajun tastes of his youth, like blackened fish and a dark, spicy gumbo. In recent years, the hordes of visitors drove away local diners. Prudhomme’s heroic efforts to feed first responders after Katrina, however, prompted many New Orleanians to revisit this culinary treasure.
