Praline Pecan Pie Muffins
The roots of Creole cuisine can be traced to one woman: Madame Langlois (lang-WAH).
A housekeeper to the governor of French Louisiana, Sieur de Bienville, Langlois taught newly settled Parisian women in New Orleans a unique fusion cuisine that combined French culinary traditions with local ingredients and the foodways of nearby Indian tribes. Langlois’ historic classes were at the “culinary crossroads” marking the beginnings of Creole cuisine. Built inside a turn-of-the-century Italian market in the historic Marigny neighborhood,
Langlois Culinary Crossroads provides guests with an unparalleled cooking and dining experience in a unique setting. Demonstration and hands-on classes in Creole/Cajun cookery are taught by Louisiana native and cookbook author Amy Cyrex-Sins and New Orleans culinary history tours are conducted by local food historians. The Langlois retail store sells artisan products, unique cookware and gourmet-on-the-go foods.
