All Alaskan Racing Pigs

You never sausage a show!

Pork-belly laughs are a certain result when the All-Alaskan Racing Pigs pay a visit. You may not think of little porkers when sports is the conversation, but these fuzzy little racers will make you reconsider the meaning of “professional athlete.” And “fast food.” The 100-yard dash and the 50-yard high hurdles come to life as you have never experienced them before. When the runners have four legs the starts are even more exhilarating. When you carry around plenty of padding you can really bump and grind in the corners. And when you are a cute little pig, well, you can do just about anything you want. It’s just pure fun.

He has shared stages and billing with such notable chefs as Paul Prudhomme, Marlin Yan, John Foles, and Chef Tell.

His audiences laugh, learn and, dines at the end of his presentation. Chef Landry can put fun into any event by providing a generous supply of humor, along with appetizing Cajun dishes.
