Tired of relying on fast food? Think you can't make good food in your tiny apartment kitchen? Want to save money? Overwhelmed when you walk into a supermarket?
I was all of these a short time ago, but I learned to shop, cook, save, and be healthier. And now I want to pass some of that on to you. It's not easy being sensible about eating in southern Louisiana. It's tough to pass up the fried, sweetened, saucy goodness of Cajun cooking, but it is possible, and you can even enjoy it along the way. Here you will find reviews of local markets, from the giant superstores to the tiny stands and in between. You will see recipes for good homecooking that may not match your momma's, but it will satisfy you. And you can even add your own ideas or questions along the way. So do yourself a favor and start reading the posts!
I want to send a special thank you to my friend Jay D. Ducote of Bite and Booze. His blog was a real inspiration for this one. Few people love going out to eat more than I do, so his blog has been a fantastic resource for me and many other in navigating the Baton Rouge restaurant scene. He is also an accomplished and respected barbecue chef, and I hope to feature him here soon.
By giving to Faire les Courses, using the donate button on the right side of the page, you can help those in the Baton Rouge area who struggle to make groceries. One in six Americans face food insecurity, or not knowing when, or if, their next meal is coming. In Louisiana, 11 percent of all residents, and nearly 20 percent of children (that's one in every five), suffer from food insecurity. In the most prosperous country in the world, this is intolerable. Your donation, no matter how small or large, can go a long way in helping your neighbors make groceries and put food on their tables.
