Unfort., I haven't experienced any as of yet but do look forward to some. I thought I was getting some authentic Louisianna food several weeks ago at a festival but I think it was all a gimmick. I was truely disappointed.

too many years ago, PP was on tv giving a recipe of his for Cajun shrimp using his seasoning. I made it several times over the years, but can't anymore as I've developed an allergy to beer. it consisted of butter, beer, shrimp, galic, onion, and his cajun spice which he nicely gave the recipe for. that was before it's now in the bottled stage and available for purchase at the market. good thing is, I wrote it down and it is sensational.

once on a trip to NO, I ordered red beans and rice with andouille sausage. the flavor wonderful, but I liberally bit into a bite of something really hard, maybe a pepper corn, thought I was about to break a tooth

had a whole fish gumbo served over dirty rice by a true Louisiana French speaking ladycajun. THe whole event as we helped chop and cook the feast, and then slow dined on the BEST gumbo to ever hit my mouth...is still ingrained in my memory and taste buds.
Ms. Dot and my mom were complementary opposites in the kitchen, and great friends so we often all cooked and ate together from childhood to our 20s.

that was no peppercorn which would have yielded under your bite, since dry beans are used in "red beans and rice" i am pretty sure you bit a stone! Dry legumes always have to be picked thoroughly since stones are quite common, I know exactly the feeling having bitten quite a few in my lifetime!!
