Today's interview is with Jay Steiner concerning an upcoming event at Vermillionville Living History Museum and Folklife Park. Vermillionville will be hosting a traditional Cochon de Lit on November 17, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. At this fun and education event, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the culinary traditions and history surrounding a traditional cajun Cochon de Lait!

Artisan Jay Steiner will serve as the emcee for the day amidst a plethora of activities. There will be cooking demonstrations by Edmond Alexander (cracklings), John Norbert (pork jambalaya), and Johnson Boutonniere (boudin). In addition, guests can experience soap making demonstrations and beer tastings as well. Another educational component will consist of a panel discussion - Forgotten Foods from the Cow - with Bacque Farms. 

Be sure to bring the family to this exciting event and enjoy both traditional and new age methods of the Cochon de Lait! And, what is a celebration at Vermilionville without great food, great beverages, and great live music? Award-winning legend, Leroy Thomas and the Zydeco Roadrunners, will perform in the Performance Center from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Don't forget to bring your dancing shoes and your favorite dancing partner!

If you are interested in attending the event only, your cost is $5.00, which includes tastings. However, if you are only interested in touring our historic village, then the regular admission fee applies. There is no cost for those ages 6 and under.
