Lagniappe Cajun Cafe
Food Story  July 31, 1998
"...Lagniappe Cajun Cafe photograph by John Anderson The assignment was to find another review subject in the Bastrop area, but the Cajun place I remembered on Hwy 71 East was nowhere to be found. Since I was already primed for Louisiana cuisine, I sifted through the faxes and press releases on the desk until I found buried treasure: a faxed copy of the menu from Lagniappe Cajun Cafe..."

Gumbo Weather: Winter Warmup, Cajun-style
Food Story  February 4, 1999
"...It's also the time that food-crazy Cajuns lovingly refer to as "gumbo weather." The first frigid north winds trigger a communal urge for huge bowls filled with the cold-weather favorite -- a magical middle ground between stew and soup that reflects the land's bounty and fertile culinary culture. Whether it's chunky with chicken and smoked pork sausage or laced with halved blue crabs and plump Gulf shrimp, hot gumbo counts as the only true antidote for a wetland winter and one of French Louisiana's primary food groups...."

Beauxdacious poorboys, muffalettas, etoufee, jambalaya, combos, and all the traditional sides -- Shoal Creek has small prices and the BIG taste...."

Little Chenier
This story set within the Cajun community of Lake Charles, La., immerses the viewer in the distinctive culture.
Film Review  February 22, 2008, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Johnathon Schaech, Frederick Koehler, Tamara Braun, Jeremy Davidson, Clifton Collins Jr., Chris Mulkey and Marshall Bell. As far as I know, Little Chenier is unique in the annals of American film in that it is the only narrative feature to sink as deep as a dead gator into the virtually impenetrable Cajun culture of southern Louisiana without resorting to stereotype or hokey Southern Gothic by way of the bayou..."

Strange Wilderness
When a popular wildlife TV show starts slipping in the ratings, the clueless hosts go off to the Andes in search of Bigfoot and big ratings. Big mistake.
Film Review  February 8, 2008, by Kimberley Jones
"...That crew, by the way, includes Long and Hill, who are being positioned as two starters in the next generation's Dream Team of Comedy. Nothing they do here really furthers their cause, although one does wonder what particular strain of ganja possessed Hill to take on an accent lifted wholesale from PBS's gone-but-not-forgotten Cajun Chef..."

Heaven's Prisoners
I like Alec Baldwin. Really I do. So, it hurts me every time he appears in messy, scattershot films like this one. I'm thinking about buying Tylenol in bulk these...
Film Review  May 24, 1996, by Marc Savlov
"...While it may have been a great book, this film version of Heaven's Prisoners isn't going to be winning any Palm d'Ors. From Baldwin's on-again/off-again Cajun accent to Roberts' endearingly goofy (yet totally ridiculous) portrait of a muscle-bound bayou bad boy, the film continually teeters on the brink of the laughter..."

"...Mardi Gras – Fat Tuesday – comes early this year, signaling the end of carnival season and a final indulgent celebration before the beginning of the Lenten days of abstinence. Austin Mardi Gras observances have grown over the years, and even though it doesn't look like there will be a local parade, there are plenty of places to enjoy traditional Cajun/Creole dishes, along with king cakes, Community Coffee, Sazeracs, hurricanes, Abita beer, and bright-colored beads, all to the infectious beat of zydeco music..."

Good food to get you in the mood for Mardi Gras
Food Story  March 4, 2011, by Virginia B. Wood
"...Over the years, the number of Cajun and Creole restaurants in Austin has waxed and waned, but it's now at an all-time high. In researching this story, we found more than 20 eateries with some kind of Cajun or Creole inclination on their menus, indicating that a full five years after the post-Katrina diaspora, the Austin metro area is still awash in the distinctive flavors of the Crescent City and Acadiana in places such as the MoJoe Room Bar & Grill, which offers a hearty menu of po'boys, gumbos, and étouffées, and Hot Boiled Pho & Crawfish, a fusion joint that perfectly demonstrates the most recent culinary influence of immigrants along the Gulf Coast..."

"...Long before Hurricane Katrina blew into town and changed New Orleans forever, baker Aaron Hegger had a well-deserved reputation as the "Famous Cajun Pie Man." His pies were served in dozens of New Orleans restaurants, featured at catered events for celebrities and politicians, and named the "Best Pies in New Orleans" one year by local radio food critic Tom Fitz­mor­ris. When Hegger and his family returned home after the storm, they realized New Orleans had changed; crime was up and too many of their friends and pie customers were gone..."
