TASTE OF LOUISIANA COOKING DEMOS

The Chefs relate the origin of each dish and the culture from which it evolved.   Just how does Cajun differ from Creole in the kitchen?   Why sassafras? What goes into the “trinity”? What dishes came from the Native Americans, the French, the West Africans, the Spanish?
