    Boiled Corn

    Conventional wisdom in Louisiana says that sweet corn should never be boiled. If corn was tender and sweet enough to boil, it should either be eaten raw off the cob or warmed just long enough in hot water to melt butter. However, boiling corn a few minutes with sugar and cream brings out the vegetable’s full sweetness.

  • Fiesta Macque Choux Salad

    Fiesta Macque Choux Salad

    Macque Choux is an early Louisiana dish that borrows its name from the Creole word for corn, macque, and the French word for cabbage, choux. Although cabbage doesn’t appear in the dish today, it is believed to have been in the original vegetable casserole. Today, macque choux is a baked corn and shrimp dish enjoyed by the Cajuns of River Road. The fiesta salad gives the 200-year-old mixture a Mexican twist.

    Potato, Smoked Sausage and Onion Gratin
