Fried Alligator on a stick and other Southern Favourites

….for example, the ‘ball fry’. That might be just a Texan thing though, I’m still not sure if that counts as Southern. I narrowly missed out on an annual chow-down of bull testicle to celebrate I’m not quite sure what, but it’s good to realise that as much time as I spend in Austin I’m only just scratching the surface of the unique culture that is Texas. As perhaps could be expected, they are apparently slightly chewy with a juicy centre.

But that’s beside the point because I’m back in New Orleans now. And I didn’t eat fried alligator on a stick either but it was available at the Natchitoches Folklife Festival where I spent the weekend, courtesy of Sam Douglas, filmmaker extraordinaire. Natchitoches is the oldest town in Louisiana, not to be confused with Nacogdoches, Texas, the oldest town in Texas and founded by Natchitoches' brother. Nor should you try to search for it on the internet spelt ‘Nakatesh’.
