The weather has been so unpredictable that I haven’t been able to do tours or fishing trips. Wind and rain. More rain and more wind. No great new photos to share with you. No anecdotal stories, either. The radio show still happens once a month, and I’m still gathering sponsors for the show. I’ve still got my part-time job, which takes more time than imagined.
There are a couple things coming up on the menu that I will be cooking to share with you. One is a dish for which I have to wait for Termite to be here. He’s currently out on the tug working, but I will cook it and post once he gets home in a week or so. Oh, what is it? Duck gumbo using ducks he hunted.
The other is a recipe that calls for leftover crawfish tails. Even though I could buy a package of frozen tails, it defeats the purpose of using the leftover crawfish that we boiled here at home. That particular recipe won’t happen until more crawfish are harvested and the price goes down. Besides, fresh leftovers are better, right?
Meanwhile, I’ve been working on bigger ways to promote Bayou Woman Adventures, and I came across a Louisiana promotional site and an informative, interesting, and entertaining set of videos, called the Culinary Trail of Louisiana, each episode focusing on a different section of our versatile state.
The videos are just a little over three minutes, and I’m sharing some of them with you here instead of just sending you to the link. I like having this information here and think the videos will enlighten you about the different cultures in our state and how they relate to the food and vice versa.
Of course, I’m showing them to you out of order, because I thought you would like to see the “Bayou Country” episode first. Enjoy!
- So, watch the video and tell me:
- Have you ever watched John Besh cooking on Food Network?
- Did you see a dish you’ve never seen before?
- Did you see something you’ve always wanted to try but just never have?
- Did you learn something new about food and culture in Bayou Country?
Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
