I am working hard to source ingredients that are local, clean and ethically processed. Besides focusing on organically-grown produce, shrimp, crawfish, chicken, and pork processing is a top priority to me these days. It is horrifying that certain practices are acceptable for our nation's food supply. (Having a leader that feeds fast-food to visitors to the White House is telling...) Grateful to live in a town that values, supports, and makes available healthy options for us!
Off my soapbox... for now!
It's been a blast focusing on cooking parties lately. I looove sharing NOLA recipes with new friends and together gush about the ever-amazing culture of the Crescent City.
Instead of formal pop-up events I have married them with a cooking lesson. (So much in keeping with the casual funky vibe of my home town!) After cooking a scrumptious Creole-Cajun meal, sitting around a communal table together is the best!
