Bullet Finds Prudhomme

AVONDALE, La. -- According to news accounts in the New Orleans Times-Picayune -- which incidentally remains the best-named newspaper in the United States  -- world-renowned Cajun chef Paul Prudhomme was struck in the left arm by a .22 caliber bullet randomly falling out of the sky as he set up his cooking station on the practice ground of the TPC Louisiana at the Zurich Classic Tuesday.

Though the bullet left a hole in the chef's cooking jacket and a small cut on his arm, Prudhomme gamely never left his post. In an effort to follow up on the news reports (and to inform accounting as to the reason for the rather sizable meal voucher), we dined last evening at Prudhomme's K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen. While there was no information available concerning the shooting itself, the food remained delicious.
