GOVT TACO BY Jay DUCOte 

JUNE 22-23 

 

Gov't Taco began as a resolution to create modern American tacos for a community yearning for more options. Founding Father, Food Network and Travel Channel personality Jay Ducote decided to take the initial steps by signing on as the first food vendor in the impending revolution known as White Star Market in Baton Rouge, LA.  Gov't Taco got its name because of its home in Louisiana's capital city, its placement on Government Street and from Jay's desire to finally put his two political science degrees from LSU to use in way that can make everyone happy: tacos. 

Jay is a master of both the taco arts and one of Lousianas most revered pillars of creole food and culture. Expect flavors that range from classic Mexican preparations to more contemporary favors incorporating cajun and creole ingredients. We are most excited for that uncle swine!!!
