Omelette Festival

I have wanted to go to the Omelette Festival ever since we started going to Louisiana and we finally made it.  It is part of a cultural exchange of French culture.  Chefs from 6 other cities in the world come.  We saw 5,028 eggs get scrambled with all the goodies. They add one more egg each year starting with 5000.  It starts out with a parade of all the chefs (chevaliers). 

It wouldn't be complete without the Tabasco girls from Avery Island right up the road.

 of course crawfish...... 
and finally tabasco sauce by the tabasco girls
Scramble them up
The Grand Chevalier tastes and declares it done. 
NOW, it's time to eat....along with rounds & rounds of homemade bread from the local bakery.....Yummmm!
