Bonjour Dearest Loulou :)<quoted text>
So I finally found your post. Lol
I don't know much about what les Creoles eat. I've got some creole seasoning that hardly has anything to do with anything. But I guess it's very various what you eat - since you're from so many countries. Is it like the Cajun food?
Besides that your husband cooks for you all the time. ;) and it sounds like you eat from North Africa and the Middle East kitchen .
Anyways it's true whales got mercury in the fat tissue since they're the last animal in the foodchain it accumulates in them. So the fat can be used for lanp oil. Outside the house. It's too smelly. Again I wish you and your husband a nice journey if I don't hear from you before you leave. It's very soon now. Take care;(
In regards to the whales yes, the blubber is used for lamp and lantern oil hence the reason why they are hunted....
In regards to the food both Cajuns and Creoles share the French heritage however there are differences the food of my people for blends French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Native American, and African influences.
Cajun food is more provincial and their food therefore tastes different from ours, my favorite Creole dish is Trout meunière,as you know I grew up eating seafood :)
I also eat Cajun food too, for me I like for them I cannot eat Boudin however a type of sausage made from pork, pork liver, rice, garlic, green onions, and other spices.
I also do not like the Boucherie it is a large party in the rural areas where they butcher a pug and nothing is wasted.
The way the poor animals are killed turned my stomach however :(
I love Court-Bouillon, which is catfish or redfish we Creoles prepare ours differently however.
Cajun food on the whole is different from Creole cuisine in the ingredients.
My parents went to the home of one of our servants who was a Cajun (He died a year ago) they served us poutine which is white rice and stewed beef, the name poutine means pudding.
I ate a little and it made me very ill....
I do cook as well, Sora does not prepare Creole cuisine, he loves my Brochettes and I take pride in my gumbo and especially my Étouffée. I do eat North African and Middle Eastern food and since his maman is Greek he also cooks Mediterranean food and food from the Balkans as well.
We are not too keen on Japanese food however or Kaorean or Vietnamese but we eat that too :)
My Étouffée is spicy, I am not fond of the "Nutty flavor" that my maman likes....
My trip is soon and I hope with all my heart I speak to you before then, be well my Swedish sister.
With all my love,
