Earlier this week I attended the kick-off event for the new culinary trail along Louisiana's Cajun Bayou, in Lafourche parish, just an hour south of New Orleans. Participating restaurants range from casual po' boy shops to white tablecloth fine dining, with a full range in between. Click here for a short video overview, the trail map, passport, and details on how to get the t-shirt. Make plans to get down that way this summer, for a tasty treat and a look at a different side of Louisiana.

Organized to give you a taste of Louisiana's Cajun culture and cuisine that has existed for centuries in that little-known part of the state, there are 15 participating restaurants and six food-centric festivals, the first of which is this weekend: The FOP (fraternal order of police) Mud Bug Boil-Off is Saturday, kicking off at noon with food and fun for the whole family. 

This week's recipes include the slow-braised bolognese sauce I made for my West Coast family this past weekend, a quick, easy, cheesy bacon-wrapped shrimp selection, and an excellent Boudin Benedict perfect for a Mother's Day brunch.

Speaking of Mother's Day, a subscription to Louisiana Kitchen & Culture would make an excellent Mother's Day gift!! 

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

Slow-Braised Bolognese Sauce

Slow-Braised Bolognese Sauce

This is the sauce I made for my family in Los Angeles this past weekend; it makes a boatload, so I was able to send everyone home with leftovers. Which resulted in texts from both my niece and nephew the following day, exclaiming over what a good meal they were having, thanks to me. Which made all the time it took to prepare more than worth it.
