Louisiana’s River Parishes

Louisiana’s River Parishes

Comments

I have been working with mirliton. org for the last few years helping to grow both plants and knowledge on the Louisiana heirloom varieties. One of the projects we have recently done is to produce a series of videos on how different folks in Louisiana pronounce the word MIRLITON. Today's Mirliton Pronunciation video is from a River Parish favorite; Spuddy Faucheux, Owner/operator of Spuddy's Cajun Foods in Vacherie, LA. He also specializes in Catering and Smoked Meats and the interactive Cajun Cooking Experience culinary tour.

Thank you again Spuddy for all you do to preserve our River Parish heritage and making Louisiana a better place for us all.
