I will be the first one to admit that my cupcakes in our cooking class failed miserably. It was so bad that I don’t have a picture of them to mark the occasion. Except for that mishap, we have all enjoyed the different types of food that Louisiana has to offer that we want to replicate these gastronomical delights when we travel back home. Yesterday we went to a produce market that the chef recommended to load up on authentic Cajun spices, herbs, and Jambalaya mixes. There were many choices available, some with interesting brand names ;-). We also saw all kinds of pickled products, including quail eggs.
