Congratulations to Chef Bonnie Breaux, of St. John Restaurant in St. Martinville. She won the Louisiana Seafood Cookoff at the kickoff to Eat Lafayette earlier this week, and was crowned the Queen of Louisiana Seafood. I had the good fortune to be one of the judges at the event -- you'll find her profile and the recipe for the delicious winning dish in the July/August issue of the magazine. She'll do a great job representing Louisiana at the Great American Seafood Cookoff schedule for the first weekend of August at the Louisiana Restaurant associations annual Food Service Expo here in New Orleans.
We have had great success growing peppers this spring! We harvested jalapeños last month for pepper jelly, and I have to get the cayennes in for hot pepper vinegar. The tabasco peppers are a couple weeks away from maturity, and I'm not sure what we'll do with them. It seems I have to relearn the "never handle hot peppers without latex gloves on" lesson every single year... thankfully, this year's lesson came with the fairly mild jalapeños; I bought habañeros, fermented them, and made hot sauce; the fumes caused me to evacuate the kitchen. I intend to make up a batch of wings using the stuff; it should about take the top of my head off.
And finally, VOTE EARLY, VOTE OFTEN! My friend Chef Cory Bahr of Monroe, Louisiana is competing to be the next Food Network Star, and needs your vote as Fan Favorite. Right now someone from Kentucky is leading and we can't have that. Click and vote often!
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.
