Terrance Adams is bringing the Bayou to Paducah with his new business, Bayou Southern Catering.

The new catering business will serve Cajun cuisine and Louisiana delicacies such as crawfish étouffée, boudin, jambalaya, and gumbo just to name a few. 

“I feel that there is an opening for a niche market for this particular type of food. It’s the only thing that’s not really provided in Paducah and I wanted to fill that void,” says Terrance. 

Originally from Louisiana, Terrance discovered his love for cooking at a young age. His mom taught him the basics of cooking, and he expanded his knowledge for cooking when he attended college at LSU in Baton Rouge. He learned the art of cooking Cajun dishes from his fraternity brothers as he became the designated cook at tailgates and fraternity events. When he moved to Lafayette, Louisiana for graduate school, he ate some of the best food in Louisiana and perfected his art of Cajun cooking in the heart of Cajun country. He has been an avid cook of Louisiana-inspired delicacies ever since.

“I like to cook, I like to host people and I love to see the joy on people’s faces once they try my food. Food brings people together and it’s amazing how people can connect and break down barriers with one another over a bowl of gumbo and a great conversation.”

The catering business will serve parties and events within Paducah and the surrounding area. Terrance also wants to make sure the community has a chance to taste true Cajun cuisine and has plans to have pop-up locations periodically for people to try his dishes. 

“I want to be able to provide an energetic and fun atmosphere for any party or event. My business is a great choice for people who want to have an event or even a backyard party, but do not want to spend the time prepping and cooking a meal for their guests. I will take care of the meal so my customers can enjoy the time spent with their guests.”
