Joshua Ledet received another Louisiana treat ahead of his "American Idol" performance tonight. After receiving notice about Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne's "Feed the Dream" project, The Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce knew it had to get involved. Dardenne started the project after Ledet mentioned on the show that he missed Louisiana food. Since then, Ledet has received boudin, jambalaya, crawfish and tamales.
His latest care package was shipped from New Iberia restaurant Clementine Fine Dining and Spirits. Executive Chef Benjamin Montgomery made two gallons of chicken, duck and andouille gumbo, froze it and shipped it to Ledet. The gallons are enough to serve 12 people.
On another note, presale begins Thursday for the American Idol live tour at the Cajundome on July 30. Presale runs from 10:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. and the password is Top10. There is a four ticket limit on the presale tickets and an eight ticket limit when tickets go on sale to the public on Friday. Ticket prices are $62.00, $42.00 & $26.50.
