I'm lined up to judge the 19th Annual Got Gumbo Cook-off here in New Orleans tonight (February 7), Proceeds benefit the New Orleans chapter of the United Way. Tickets are still available; they're $35 at the door. The event opens at 6:00, and you'll find me at the judge's table at the front of the room, eating my fill of great gumbo. Stop by and say hello!

My niece, a professionally trained chef, flies in tomorrow and we're spending the entire weekend cooking-- she's a great help when it comes to developing and testing recipes for the magazine. We'll have a good time, and dish up some great food. Wish y'all could taste it! You'll find the recipes in the next issue of my magazine, Louisiana Kitchen & Culture. If you're a subscriber, you're in for a treat; if you're not, you're missing out. Subscribe today!

This time of year, food banks around the country often struggle to keep their shelves stocked. If you have the wherewithall, put a few extra cans of food in your shopping cart this weekend and make a donation to your local food bank.

Enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind. Have a great weekend.

Best regards,


Susan Ford, Publisher and Editorial Director

Steak with Parsley Sauce

Grilled Flank Steak with Parsley Sauce

Adapted from the Lee Bro's cook book "Simple, Fresh, Southern", some version of this is going to find its way to my table this weekend, even if it's chilly and rainy outside. I need to get a flank steak on my grocery list today, so I can season it tonight...

Seafood Gumbo Pie

New Iberia Seafood Gumbo Pie

This recipe is from "As American as Apple Pie", an interesting cookbook passed on to me by my mother in law. It offers several recipes in various genres; the author says this one came from Helen Johnson, whose restaurant he ate at in New Iberia in 1979!

Haydel's King Cake

Haydel's King Cake

Haydel's has sold untold numbers of King Cakes over the years, and this is their recipe. If you're comfortable working with yeast dough, this will be a piece of cake, so to speak; if you're a novice baker, this is a forgiving recipe. And the thing with bread-baking is, the ingredients are cheap. Flour, salt, water, yeast. Give it a try!
