Easter


April 20, 2014

Breaking the Lenten fast is often celebrated with a Fish Fry or Crawfish Boil on Good Friday. For Easter Sunday dinner, a succulent roast with trimmings is a tradition in many households. Beets were used in former days to dye Easter eggs for the Easter egg hunts.  "La chasse commence!"

July 4th


July 04, 2016

July 4th embodies the spirit and purpose of our great country – Figs, Flags and Fireworks. Cajuns love a picnic to celebrate America’s birthday or a bar-be-cue with ice cold beer, ending the day in a spectacular fireworks display.  The 4th also means that figs are ready to picked, cooked and canned.
