Chef John Folse “A Taste of Louisiana”


John Folse is another cajun with a TV cooking show. Chef Folse arrived on the TV cooking scene a little later than Justin Wilson, the “Cookin’ Cajun”, but was just as inspirational.

$$$ A Hoosier tradition since 1934, Bonge’s Tavern is a comfortable bar-restaurant serving dishes categorized as “traditional American” or “new American”. Though the building was constructed in 1847 as a general store, it became a local watering hole in the years following prohibition and has undergone renovations in recent years.
