Louisiana Culinary Trails – Seafood Sensations

Bordered by Texas to the west and Cajun Country to the east, southwestern Louisiana has developed its own brand of cooking. Rustic, spicy, and stick-to-your-ribs might best describe the food of this marshland. Dominating menus are fried and boiled seafood, pork stew, catfish courtbouillon, rice dressing, shrimp and okra gumbo, jambalaya, wild game, and lots and lots of rice. This trail zigzags across the southwestern corner of the state, sometimes known as the Louisiana Outback, stopping at a variety of crawfish houses, oyster bars, cafes, and grocery stores.

Spend It All (1971)

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.

Can anyone share some good Southern Recipes or cookbooks?

My boyfriend in originally from Louisiana, he just moved up here( michigan) a few months ago. He raves about the cooking back home but i have yet to find anything that seemed to have really come from the south ( i mean spice wise and such) I was also wondering if there was any place up here i could find the meat and spices they use because he said when i tried the meat was off. even though it said Cajun. Thank you so much 🙂
Spicyness of the food isnt a problem the more heat the better.

I live in S.E. Louisiana.I want to buy the Bell-South cookbook my mom-in law gave me. I lost it in a fire. ?

If anyone could help me find one for sale somewhere I would really appreciate it! I’m lost without it. I learned how to cook with it, not to mention the sentimental value of it.Thank you!
