Bonus! I don't often post content that appears in print in Louisiana Kitchen & Culture to our website, because I appreciate my paying subscribers and newsstand customers and want you to feel you get your money's worth. But I'm making an exception this week, because so many people were so excited about the potato salad feature in my May / June issue. So for those of you who haven't seen it, here's a link. (There's also a link within the page for a printable PDF.)
Perfect for a July 4th picnic, the feature includes recipes for classics such as a traditional creamy potato salad and a hot German potato salad, but then goes off on an interesting tangent with a lemony shrimp and potato salad, a potato salad made with leftovers from a seafood boil, a pesto potato salad, a muffuletta potato salad, a bleu cheese potato salad, and a loaded roasted potato salad. In other words, plenty to select from to suit your taste buds! Give it a read, and let me know what you think -- and consider a subscription to the magazine if you don't already have one.
I have a friend visiting this week from Salt Lake City (shes gasps audibly every time she steps outside into the South Louisiana humidity,) and you're receiving this week's newsletter a little late because I played hooky yesterday and took her on a tour of plantation country on River Road. We toured Houmas House in the morning and spent some time exploring the extensive grounds, then drove across the river and down to Vachery. We had lunch at B&C Seafood Market and Cajun Restaurant then stopped in at my friend Norman Marmillon's beautifully restored Laura. Our tour guide, Camille, was as entertaining as she was informative; we were so enthralled we forgot to take pictures. You'll have to visit yourself!
This week's recipes, coupled with one of the potato salads linked above, will endure the perfect picnic for the holiday weekend. Enjoy, share them with family and friends, and as always, let me know what's on your mind.
