Louisiana native Ed “Cajun Ed” Richard has been cooking real Cajun food in Tulsa for nearly 20 years.
Once again Hebert’s Specialty Meats is ready to take orders for those extra special Cajun style Thanksgiving dinners. Many a table will include favorite holiday meats with just the right amount of spicy seasonings to add a little heat to every mouth-watering bite.
Ed “Cajun Ed” Richard, owner of the restaurant, says he is pleased to fill orders for the same customers he has had for nearly 20 years.
“Some people have ordered meats from us every holiday,” the Louisiana native recalls. “Some want a little adventure in their meal with a few things to add a different flavor.”
Cajun Ed provides wonderful specialty meats and other delicacies authentic to New Orleans. This is real Cajun food made by real Cajun folks who make every meal a celebration.
Hebert’s has it all. Choose from turducken, stuffed boneless turkey, stuffed turkey breast, spiral ham with honey or Cajun honey glaze, smoked turkey, turkey or boneless stuffed chicken. For those who prefer something other than poultry, beef or pork tenderloin, prime rib roast, pork crown roast or pork loin are also available. All the meats at Hebert’s are extra special quality, keeping people coming back year after year.
Side dishes include cornbread dressing, Andouille cornbread dressing, dirty rice dressing, sweet potatoes, crawfish jalapeno cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes, broccoli cheese casserole, green beans, corn maque choux, potato salad and cole slaw.
What Cajun holiday meal would be complete without dessert favorites? Bread pudding, bourbon pecan pie, key lime pie, peanut butter chocolate ganache pie and, of course, pralines.
If cooking at home suits you better, Hebert’s has all the ingredients you could need. The Cajun market at Hebert’s is like a stroll through the French Quarter. Ed says it is the largest Cajun retail space in Tulsa. Brand name items include: Tabasco products, Zapp’s Potato Chips, Café Du Monde Beignet Mix, Camellia Beans, Community Coffee, Zatarain’s, Jack Miller’s BBQ Sauce, Tony Chachere’s, Steen’s 100% Pure Cane Syrup and Blue Plate Mayonnaise.
Hebert’s meats can be shipped anywhere in the U.S., Monday through Wednesday. Orders can be placed over the phone or online. A handy guide helps choose the right sizes for the number of people you’ll be serving. They can also pack food for you if you are traveling.
Ed urges customers to order early so they won’t run out of anything. Pick up your order hot and ready to serve to your guests on Wednesday, the 23rd, or fully cooked and ready to heat up Thanksgiving day.
Thinking ahead for holiday gifts, Hebert’s carries Cajun cookbooks featuring dishes from a variety of Louisiana regions. There are lots of unusual kitchen items, too, as well as gift cards and online gift certificates.
You don’t have to wait for the holiday. Hebert’s is open Monday through Thursday, from 10 to 8 and Friday and Saturday until 9 for lunch and dinner.
“Try us once and you’ll be hooked,” says Ed.
