We travel to St. Landry Parish this week and check out the picks of Chef/Owner Jason Huguet from the Steamboat Warehouse Restaurant. A lot has happened for Chef Huguet since he started at Steamboat as a dishwasher/busboy. He has worked his way up the ladder, officially becoming owner on June 28th 2006. He graduated from The Chef John Folse Culinary Institute in 2000, worked with chefs such as Chef John Folse himself and was an intern under Chef Paul Prudhomme.
