Boudin recipe?

This may get booted over to "Home Cooking", but I've done a cursory search over there and came up dry.

A friend who bartends at our favorite restaurant AND is the up-and-coming charcuterie expert at his family's Italian deli asked if I knew of any boudin blanc recipes.

I immediately thought of Chef Folse's "Encyclopedia" and found that the recipes in that fabulous tome also appear on Chef Folse's website.

I pointed my friend in the direction of the website and called it good.

Am I missing any recipes that outshine the Folse recipes?

  1. Yes, plenty outside of Folse. See especially Donald Link's "Real Cajun", the recipe section at the wonderful Boudin Link website at , and Paul Prudhomme, et al, "The Prudhomme Family Cookbook" (out of print, but in many library collections). For boudin lore, check out the Southern Boudin Trail, a project of the Southern Foodways Alliance:

      I can vouch for Link's version. I tried that recipe myself...excellent!

        Many thanks.

        I have the Link book and should have thought to look....same with the Prudhomme book.

        Got tunnel vision on the Folse recipes.
