  Alligator Parmesan DiSalvo

Guy DiSalvo, from Latrobe, Pennsylvania, is an exceptional Italian chef. His marinara is a great example of simplicity and seasoning done just right to create an amazingly tasty dish. In fact, it is the perfect topping for veal or eggplant parmesan. Here is my version, which utilizes alligator.

  Duo of Sausages Smothered in Apples

Early settlers found wild apple trees growing in Louisiana and often made wine with the fruit or included it in recipes. This sausage, created in central Louisiana, is flavored with apples and cider.

  Chicken Paella

Paella significantly influenced Louisiana cooking. Not only was the dish the forefather of jambalaya, but it was also a hearty meal that kept many Cajun and Creole families alive during hard times.

In Bayou Country, dove season meant not only good sport shooting, but also wonderful game birds for the table.

  Pork Chop and Potato Gratin

We have taken meat and potatoes to the next level with this dish.

  Duck and Andouille Gumbo

Almost every species of wild game in Louisiana has been used in the creation of gumbo. Because most Cajun men were hunters and trappers, it is not surprising that wild duck and smoked andouille were often used. Many times hunters staying at Reid-Toerner House in Lake Charles, La., will contribute wood ducks from the morning hunt and combine it with smoked andouille to create a magnificent gumbo for the evening meal.
