CAJUN COOKING: Cajun Ed’s Hebert’s Specialty Meats hosts Crawfest on May 18 from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

All things Cajun comes to Tulsa for CrawFest 2013 on May 18.

Cajun Ed’s Hebert’s Specialty Meats, 2101 E. 71st St., will host CrawFest from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Cajun favorites will be available such as Crawfish Etouffee, Crawfish Boudin, Boiled Crawfish, Boiled Shrimp, Red Beans, Cajun Sausage Sandwiches, Corn Maque Choux, Homemade Pralines and Bread Pudding. Other favorites will be available on the grill including Beef and Pork Sausage, Pork Boudin, and hot dogs for the little ones.

The festival will also feature live Cajun music from the Jambalaya Jazz Band and crawfish games for the entire family.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Nathan Johns, the son of an Hebert’s employee. Johns is a young husband and father who contracted West Nile Fever in June 2012. Nathan was in for eight months and remains hospitalized, facing months of respiratory and physical rehabilitation. He is currently learning how to walk, talk and reuse his arms and legs.

Another portion of CrawFest’s proceeds will go to Planted Ministries, Inc., founded and operated by Tulsan Rachel Richard Chaves. Planted Ministries is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the poorest children and families in Nicaragua through an education program created to break the cycle of poverty. Planted Ministries is in the process of receiving government approval to open a home that will serve as a safe and nurturing environment where abused and neglected children can heal physically, emotionally and spiritually.
