Reveling with the Christmas Reveillon

We have something like this in New Orleans too, though, as usual, things are a bit different here.

Farmers Market Minute: Yamboree

11/21/2009 – Close your eyes and imagine your family's Thanksgiving table. I put good money on it that it includes Louisiana sweet potatoes.

Ironclad Cooking at Louisiana's Black Pot Festival

Lafayette, LA –
As Louisiana recipes are passed down through the generations, it's common for them to acquire family stories and lore. The same thing sometimes happens to cookware, especially the seasoned cast iron skillets and Dutch ovens in which we cook our gumbos, stews and jambalayas.
