Subtitel: A Century of Acadiana Cooking from Open Fire to Microwave.
The art work on the front cover painted by Jean Angelle of Lafayette, Louisiana tells the story of a ‘Cajun Boucherie’.
It is a scene from a unique life-style in the early years of the Acadian people. It was a time set aside by family and friends to slaughter, cook and cure pork from sun-up to sun-down. Boudin, gratton [cracklings], bacon, sausage, salt pork, and meat packed in hog lard were some of the ways they preserved meat for the months ahead. For the children it was a day filled with fun, friends and good food.
Black people contributed much to the day’s activities with their special knowledge of cooking. In spite of the hard work involved, everyone looked forward to the occasion as a means of getting together for a little gossip, a little music, excellent food, and good Cajun fun!
