If there's crawfish in Schroon Lake -- not literally, but figuratively -- it means it's that time of the year: the annual Witherbee's Carriage House Bayou Bob Crawfish Boil, starting Saturday through Saturday -- while supplies last!
Bill and Patty Christian have had thousands of pounds of crawfish flown in from Louisiana for this special event, which memorializes Louisiana native and long time Schroon Laker Bobby Matchutas.
Bob taught Bill and Patty all of the secrets to a traditional Louisiana Crawfish Boil, including a dizzying array of secret spices and the precise timing required to achieve that authentic Cajun taste.
Schroon Laker Joe Steiniger has the terrific back story behind the Boil on his North Country Rambler blog. It's a fun read.
Each serving is a pound of crawfish, corn, potato and assorted veggies.
