Original Okie: “Cajun” Ed Richard

by Michael Cooper


“Cajun” Ed Richard founded the world-famous Cajun restaurant/specialty meat shop Hebert’s, where Louisiana natives have spent many a Mardis Gras celebration for over almost two decades. Hebert’s intriguing specialties include Turducken (that’s a turkey stuffed with chicken and duck), boudin, and a variety of stuffed sausages among other tasty delights. My particular favorite treat is the Beignet (French donut) Saturday morning.
