History of "Booyah" comes to life

The word “booyah” is more than a catchphrase to a local organization that is researching the history behind the thick, stew-like, soup.  Bill and Cheryl Chaudoir from the Belgian Heritage Center are putting together two videos that will bring to life the history of booyah.  Cheryl describes the makeup of the hearty and popular ethnic food.



Bill says early research suggests that booyah was first made in the United States for Belgian Kermises that celebrate the yearly fall harvest.



The videos are expected to be released sometime in the spring with a presentation at the Belgian Heritage Center in Namur.  Chaudoir notes that after the presentation the videos will be made available online for people to enjoy.
