Much more than paella, flan, and empanadillas
(meat pies), Isleño
cuisine reflects the diverse heritage of Louisiana. The ingredients combine to produce a healthy menu of more than 800 dishes that range from Irish Stew and a Chow Mein Hot Dish to Chicken Cacciatore and a New England Boiled Dinner.
Other dishes are pure Louisiana, nine different recipes for gumbo, and two for fried alligator, for example. And no one could forget the sweets. One entire chapter is devoted to Cakes, Cookies & Candies, with another reserved for Desserts & Pies. While others may eat to live, los Isleños live to eat!
