Dig Baton Rouge

Jay Ducote to open booth in White Star Market

Did you like local chef Jay Ducote on “Food Network Star?” Well, you’re about to get a taste in Baton Rouge.

Ducote is lending a hand at the upcoming White Star Market with Gov’t Taco, which is set to serve a “wide range of creative tacos,” according to The Advocate. Gov’t Taco will be open in 9 to 10 months.

“Up till now at least, the masses of Baton Rouge haven’t really been able to taste the food that I cook,” he said, according to The Advocate. “I’ve done a fair amount of pop-up dinners, barbecue demos and things like that. This will be my first time to put my time on a legit food service establishment. Certainly, there’s pressure with that for the tacos we produce to live up to lofty expectations. We’re going to have to be creative, inventive, and just straight up good.”
