The Cajuns of Southwest Louisiana still retain the language, camaraderie and old world spirit of their French-speaking Acadian ancestors. Les Blank’s (www.lesblank.com) film captures the intense bravado and vitality of their lives, in scenes such as quarter horse racing, coffee roasting, accordion building, cooking and eating supper along with the intoxicating music of the Balfa Brothers, Marc Savoy, Nathan Abshire and others.

I need something that will fill up my husband and I am tired of cooking the same old stuff like Rice and gravy and meat. We live in Southern Louisiana so he like heavy food but I want to try something new. Can you give me some ideas????
My mom used to make Shepherd’s Pie for supper. It’s relatively simple and tends to go over well with men.
In a 9 x 13 pan, place a layer of browned hamburger in the bottom. Follow that with a can or two of cream of mushroom soup. Then, layer a vegetable (like corn or green beans), and finally top off with mashed potatotes. It may sound crazy, but it is delicious

Tune into the Food Network and learn to cook for one. Not that difficult, although some people believe it may be cheaper to eat out I don’t follow that logic!
Louisiana has some of the best seafood in the US! Can’t be that hard.
I live in the northern Orange County area but I used to live in northern Louisiana. I know they’d be having Mudbug Madness in a couple of months and it’s killing me… I haven’t had boiled crawfish in over 10 years! I hear there’s crawfish inside this very strict state (as far as allowing seafood and the like to cross its borders). But where can I get any?
I never did cook it myself and I’m not so fond of food poisoning as to start now, besides which my husband and kids would probably (absolutely) refuse to try it.
Is there a restaurant in Southern California that serves boiled crawfish in season? Failing that, is there at least a restaurant that serves a crawfish meal that has enough meat in it to be able to tell you’re eating it and not chicken?
Please don’t suggest shrimp. I don’t know who could confuse the two but I never could tolerate the texture of shrimp or lobster.
Try Bayou Grill in Inglewood. The address is 1400 N La Brea Avenue. I’ve never been to the bayou but the crawfish here is pretty good and doesnt taste like shrimp.
If I open up a crawfish restraunt that serves Louisiana style crawfish $7.99/ lb. Would you be willing to pay?
My restaurant would also serve blue crabs, dungenees crabs, poor boy sandwiches, raw oyster, jambalaya, etcc…. everything Louisiana style. You will get a choice of Mild, Med, Hot, plus 4 different cajun flavoring for your crawfish, every 2 pound you order, you get a free corn of cob and 1 Sausage.
If I decided to start off slowly and cook them from home by the pound order over the phone, are you willing to pick it up $5.00/lb?
Bring it on Dannyboy I’m getting Hongry just thinking about it!
Dry Wood features the music of “Bois Sec” (Dry Wood) Ardoin, his sons and Canray Fontenot. Theirs is an older, rural style of Cajun music, which, in the film, weaves together incidents in the lives of the Fontenot and Ardoin Families.
