A high-protein diet can help build muscle, which comes in handy for fighting off a shark that is also on a high-protein diet. Take a bite out of the circle of life with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Cajun specialty meats and ready-made meals at Chris' Specialty Meats, with locations in Baton Rouge and Prairieville.
Chris' Specialty Meats, recently lauded by Best of Baton Rouge, purveys creative and traditional Cajun meats and meals poised for cooking. Brother and sister, Chris and Twyla Lachaussee, who can trace their Cajun history back more than a century, revive recipes such as crabmeat pie ($8.99) and crawfish étouffée, which bathes fish in butter, pepper, and lemon for a fine dinner centerpiece or piece of impressionistic wall art ($13.75). The chicken sausage ($4.99/lb.) plays the star in any stew, and tamales ($8.25/dozen) lend stomachs a compact satisfaction. Check out the menu for the full scope of daily prepared meats and acrostic poems about sassafras.
Chris' Specialty Meats
Generations of Lachaussees have lovingly prepared Cajun meals from family recipes, using succulent cuts of game and traditional meats. For almost two decades, Chris Lachaussee has carried on the family tradition with a full menu of spice-laden, fully cooked meats that are ready to be heated and served. Chris and his staff craft the specialty meats and homestyle sides every day, ensuring that delectable portions of stuffed quail, pork tenderloin stuffed with cream cheese and bacon-wrapped jalapeños, and seafood gumbo arrive at patrons’ tables fresher than a ripe banana’s newest dance moves.
