Will Edwards opened his first Kolache Kitchen in Baton Rouge six years ago. He still gets asked, what is a kolache? Now, he has expanded to New Orleans with a new Kolache Kitchen on Freret Street. He expects to hear that question a lot more. It's like a pig in a blanket but better," Edwards said. The pastries are from Eastern Europe, but they have long been embraced by Texas, where savory versions filled with some combination of sausage, cheese and jalapeños are most popular. Edwards, a Houston native, missed kolaches while a student at LSU. A few years after graduating, he opened the first Kolache Kitchen with the help of the university's Louisiana Small Business Development Center. He now has two locations in Baton Rouge.
