Cajun Food Traditions Now

Premieres Sunday, May 8, 2011 at 8:00 p.m.

Focusing on Louisiana’s rich food heritage, this one-hour program explores South Louisiana’s traditions and ingredients that make up Cajun cuisine. Shot in HD from hunting camps in the swamp to Acadian Mardi Gras celebrations, James Beard Award finalist and producer Kevin McCaffrey aims to “show how Cajun food traditions are more complex and subtle than the blackening or over-spicing America thinks they are.”
