Beaux Boudin Cajun and Creole Bites
Food enthusiast Jeff Crump Jr., grew up in a bustling home in Houston,TX with a Louisiana French-Creole mother and a Texas Born African-American father, with two sisters and Clementine, his French-Creole Grandmother, who nicknamed him “Beau”. At an early age, Jeff’s first bites were by the hand of Clementine, dishes such as Courtboullion, Smothered Chicken n’ Rice, Boudin, Etouffe’ and her family-famous Gumbo.
With the food of his matriarchs in his childhood home, family reunions in Lake Charles and frequent trips to New Orleans, Jeff’s appreciation of the history and culture of Southern Louisiana deepened and left an impacting impression on Jeff and his palette.
After leaving Houston, Jeff found it difficult to acquire the tastes and quality of the home-made dishes he had from his family and time in Southern Louisiana. This need propelled Jeff and wife Melissa Hernandez to start “Beaux Boudin”, an artisan Boudin and Cajun/Creole kitchen.
