As a reminder, and for you " new" visitors, the Cooking Louisiana web site is not about me, it's about "us" and our swiftly fading Cajun/Creole heritage. Cooking is but one part of that heritage and my goal is to help preserve this single part of what we are on this web site. It's all about love of our Acadian ancestors. And of course we share what we have with everyone!

Be sure to visit the "What's New" page to see all of the site's new additions.

Did you know Oysters were first served to the public in the U.S. in 1763 when a primitive saloon was opened in New York City in a Broad Street cellar.
