    I love the Cajun food and drink recipes most of all ! Because the food is so wonderful ! But it’s so important to make sure all those around the regions, nation and world begin to understand this beautiful culture experience and appreciate all the minute nuisances ! It would be easy to take many things at face value and make light of them ! However , when delving deeper into each separate cultural groups idealiogy and then returning then believes back together , it’s easier to appreciate the sum of the whole of what makes up the peculiarities of NOLA! As well as what makes her so intreging to insiders as well as visitors!
    That’s why it’s imperative that this culture be shared and taught so it perpetuates from generation to generation not in a fixed old fashion stagnot way! Rather those of the heritage maintain the cultural linage intact through story, recipes, ability to replicate the crafts for those that enjoy continuing those artisan skills and pure arts of beauty. Because if some of the artisan skills aren’t maintained it would become a lost art be it in butchering animals, tatting lace, to Knit or Crocett Fine, Cooking all the old Cajun Dishes that have been infused with the various cultural influences such as Africa, Canadian, French, Indian, Italian, Mexican .Thus NOLA has a beautiful rich heritage to be proud of. You’re doing a wonderful job with this on line! Magazine doing everything I’ve just stated ! Only your doing what I’ve attempted to say so much better! Thank you so much ! I’m thoroughly enjoying everything you’re producing ! It’s all been superb !
