BOUDIN TRAIL: GUIDROZ FOOD CENTER

Mary Beth Lasseter has been out on the boudin trail, recording stories that will soon be published online thanks to generous support from the Butterfield and Robinson Foundation. On the most recent trip in mid-January, SFA met Alvin Guidroz and his father, Joseph Guidroz. Though Joseph is officially retired, he helps his son make boudin every Tuesday and Friday morning. Their store sells hundreds of pounds of boudin each week, in addition to the hot plate lunches they dish every day. Vist on a Saturday for a taste of cowboy stew. And red beans, of course, are sold on Monday.
