She's finally here! Gifts From the Ancestors Volume One.

Okra & Tomatoes: 25 recipes from the heart of Acadiana

Our beautifully designed cookbook is a love letter to Southwest Louisiana. The Louisiana Creole recipes were passed down to me from my paternal Grandmother Adele and Mother Viola. The West African recipes came from the curriculum I developed for the West African Influences on Southern Cuisine. The GFTA Cookbook complements the GFTA YouTube Series.
