It sure seems like the 37 Cooks world revolves around Ville Platte, LA. Indeed, several of our members, including Sandra and Willie, have gone to visit VP. And this challenge marks the third sponsor we've had from this small town of a little over 7,000. What's so magical about Ville Platte? Kary's Roux is!
From the moment member Luke (also a former sponsor, Teet's Food Store) joined our ranks in 37 Cooks, he's been bragging on Kary's Roux. His tagline, BOOOM!, is never far behind when talking about their line of products. And why not? Luke grew up cooking with these products just like he grew up in various sports teams with his friend Ross LaFleur, of Kary's Roux. Not only that, but Luke's and Ross's fathers also played sports and became friends when they were young!
When Ross approached 37 Cooks about becoming a sponsor, none of us here had any doubts! "Send it! Send it now! We can take on this challenge!" Ross sent us Kary's "Original" Roux and Kary's Dry Roux and we think you'll find what we've cooked up to be both delicious and in some cases, quite unpredictable!
Kary’s Roux was started in 1975 in Ville Platte, LA by Kary Lafleur, who remains the owner of Kary’s Roux and Pig Stand Bar-B-Q Sauce. He is the son of Archange Lafleur, who ran the Pig Stand Restaurant in Ville Platte for thirty years. Passed on from generation to generation, the Lafleur's are clearly "food people". 37 Cooks appreciates their sponsorship and we hope you will check our Kary's entire product line on their website at http://www.karysroux.com. No doubt in our minds, if you can get a hold of these products, BOOOM! will enter your vocabulary too!
