Congratulations to Chef Ryan Trahan of Blue Dog Café in Lafayette; he was crowned the new King of Louisiana Seafood after winning the Louisiana Seafood Cookoff that took place during A Taste of Eat Lafayette earlier this week. He will go on to represent Louisiana in the Great American Seafood Cookoff, which takes place during the annual Louisiana Foodservice & Hospitality Expo the first weekend of August here in New Orleans. We wish him the best of luck! You'll find a profile of him in the next issue of Louisiana Kitchen & Culture.

Family in the kitchen: my niece Amelia, a culinary school graduate, and my sister Charlotte are visiting, and spent several hours in the kitchen helping cook and troubleshoot a couple of recipes for upcoming issues of the magazine; wait until you see the recipe for Creamed Corn Ice Cream. If you like corn, you're going to love this recipe; it's topped with caramel corn, and garnished with home made caramel corn with peanuts. We've had a lot of fun, eaten way too much food, and even got in some relaxation. They head back home on Saturday.

I'll ask a favor: if you have friends and family who enjoy Louisiana's unique culinary culture, use the "forward email and recipes" links at the bottom of this email to send this email along to them; include a note, and ask them to check out the magazine. Every week, we have people call up to subscribe, expressing delight at having just discovered the magazine, even though it's been out for more than 6 years. Help us spread the word!

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

Best regards,

Susan Ford
