Crawfish is a unique ambassador of Louisiana. These little crustaceans that resemble tiny lobsters, produce sweet tail meat that is the delight and star in many Cajun and Creole creations. You haven’t experienced the best of South Louisiana until you’ve had some crawfish.
Do you have your have your Easter Ham yet? That beautiful baked ham topped with pineapples and cherries with a tangy glaze will be the centerpiece of your Easter table and, if it’s not already, it will become a holiday tradition. That sweet, smoky aroma will permeate your kitchen while it’s baking and linger all day to the delight and awe of your guests.
The list of culinary “musts” when you visit Louisiana is long-poboys, Muffalettas and beignets are just the tip of the gastronomical iceberg. Maybe not as familiar as some of the other iconic dishes, there’s another one that doesn’t have anything to do with roux or gravy or fried seafood or any of those wonderful things. In fact, it’s a salad-yep, a salad, but one that’s so sensational, it’s called the Sensation Salad. The first time I ate one, I was hooked. This is a special treat and a genuine signature of Louisiana cuisine.
