Event Details

The official Books Along The Teche Literary Festival returns for an eighth year, featuring various opportunities for exploring the realms of literary history, culture, and cuisine—all in the beautiful historic district of New Iberia. Among events included in this year's festival is the Louisiana Seafood Great Southern Chefs Food Demonstration.

Jay Ducote is a chef, traveler, speaker, storyteller, culinary personality, and cultural gastronomist. Basically, he eats and drinks for a living.

He received his BA in economics and political science and MA in political science from LSU.

Jay is most widely known for finishing runner-up on Season 11 of the hit reality competition show Food Network Star in 2015. He also had a pilot for his own show, "Deep Fried America," air on the Travel Channel in 2016. In 2019 he won an episode of Beat Bobby Flay after challenging the Iron Chef to a crawfish boil. Jay won an episode of Food Network’s Superchef Grudge Match in 2023. He has also appeared on Chopped, Cutthroat Kitchen, Masterchef, and many more television and web shows.

In the event that a Books Along the Teche Literary Festival event coincides with weather severe enough to trigger a National Weather Service watch or warning within a twenty-five-mile radius of the supper site, the event may be rescheduled or canceled. If weather forces an event postponement, every effort will be made to reschedule within a reasonable time frame. Existing tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled date. If circumstances require a cancellation, a full refund will be issued.
