Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving and étouffée on the hoof

I read somewhere that we eat more as a nation on Thanksgiving than on any other day of the year. I believe it, and have traditionally done my part to make that happen.
That’s partly because I like good food, but also because food is an essential part of this annual celebration of faith, family, friends and shared traditions — all of which are essential parts of who we are. There may be no other place where these things meld so closely or so deliciously as in south Louisiana

Thanksgiving dinner costing a little less

For the first time in four years, consumers can expect to pay a little less for their Thanksgiving meal.
 The American Farm Bureau Federation has conducted an informal price survey for the past 31 years on grocery items used to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving meal for 10 people. This year the price came in at $49.87, 20 cents less than the average cost in 2015.

Eat well, it’s a heritage thing

At Thanksgiving, we celebrate the bounty of our harvest, and there is plenty to celebrate here. The cornucopia overflows in south Louisiana; we can fill our holiday tables with nothing but home-grown foods and eat like royalty.
William Darby visited southwest Louisiana 200 years ago, and recognized then the prospects for our natural bounty.
