While preparing a nightly special back in November of 2014, Chef Dustie Latiolais stumbled upon a succulent blend of pork and locally gathered ingredients in a consistency that was perfect for accompanying grilled meats, sandwiches and morning breakfast. After experimenting at home and perfecting the recipe, his newly discovered Bacon Jam was given out as Christmas gifts to family and friends and quickly became the talk of the town. The idea of cooking, jarring and selling this Jam came about after this holiday success. And thus, Cochon Cannery was born.
Cochon Cannery is a family ran operation. Dustie and his wife, Denise, continue to cook and jar Bacon Jam, as well as a whole bacon lineup, in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. On a trip down to the Lafayette Farmers and Artisan’s Market on any given Saturday morning, one can find the couple selling their Jam while their six year old son, Dawson, and their two year old daughter, Demi, draw in the customers with their adorable looks and free samples.
Cochon Cannery’s flagship product, our original Bacon Jam, is a carefully crafted blend of cured bacon, Steen’s cane syrup and vinegar, locally sourced unprocessed cane sugar, and onions. We care about our customers and strive to use local ingredients to achieve the best product. If it can be jarred, we add a little bit of bacon and a whole lot of love. At Cochon Cannery, we live and breath bacon and love bringing that goodness to every one of our customers.
