I try to avoid controversial subjects whenever possible, but I feel obligated to report on what could be the start of The Great Boudin War between towns in Avoyelles, Evangeline and Lafayette parishes.
As you may know, the community of Scott in Lafayette Parish claims the modest title of “Boudin Capital of the World.”

But at a recent boudin contest in downtown Lafayette, reports Mike Gauthier, T-Boy’s, a store in Mamou (Evangeline Parish), won first place in both the traditional and specialty categories, plus the coveted People’s Choice award.

And T-Jim’s store, in Cottonport (Avoyelles), won first place in the unlinked category.
Mike says this has led many Avoyelles folks to claim that their parish is really the home of the best boudin in the world.

This could get serious — major bragging rights are in play here.
