It’s products like Savoie’s old-fashioned roux and rice dressing mix that make life in the kitchen much simpler. You might hear that a homemade roux is the best, but most Louisiana natives will tell you that the stuff in the jar is just as good! Savoie’s made its humble beginnings in 1949 as a small grocery store, here in St. Landry Parish. However, today Savoie’s is one of the most well-known, nationally recognized Cajun food companies. You can visit Savoie’s Food at their home base in Opelousas, Louisiana, and stock up on smoked pork sausage, smoked tasso, boudin, and other products.
