Creole Cooking on Cane River
Cane River in Northern Louisiana is a seemingly timeless place where a close-knit community of Creole people have maintained their cultural and familial ties uninterrupted since colonial days. Food has always meant much to Louisianians whether they be French, Cajun, American, Indian or African, and so it is with the Creoles, whose foodways serve as a window into the past and present. Come with us to sample Gumbo, Turtle Etouffee, Macque Choux, Teacakes, and lots of other great dishes as the Cane River Creoles share their recipes and stories of the world.
