The cultures of South Louisiana are diverse and interesting, a
land whose history is rich in foods and ethnic cooking styles. In my
fifty years of living here I've heard so many stories of
"how grandma or grandpa used to cook this or that", of
"how Mama cooked the best such and such", yet, they had no
idea how to do it; what a loss. I'm afraid we're slowing loosing
our own home heritage, or roots. How can this process be delayed? By
gathering as much information as we can about the years passed and
The people of Cajun and Creole Land orient many activities around
food so what better a place to start? I'm going to continue to
collect the recipes and the stories, but I need your help.
Please consider taking the time write your own recipes and
memories and talking to friends and family about the old recipes and
food stories. Record these and send them to me. I'll post them to
the site in their respective areas to share with each other and
people of the world. We can save our roots but we have to start now
because we all well know with each generation a little bit of where
we came from is lost.
