Healthy Cajun Foods:  Tradition and Great Taste Are Possible

My great love for Cajun and Creole foods and the traditions unique to this region of the country have influenced my culinary repertoire since the 1980s. Call it inevitable that after extensive travel as a chef, I would find my way to this great Bayou Region. The richness of the food and how deeply it is infused into the local culture is unlike anywhere else. Where else can one find culinary influences of so many distinct cultures including French, German, Spanish, and African cuisines fused together into a new entity?

Thibodaux Regional Medical Center is committed to the health and wellness of the community we serve. Here is where my quest begins: to make our local specialties healthier without losing the flavor, as well as keeping the portion size a “Cajun Portion.”

We are in the process of developing and creating recipes for a Cajun Café featuring a healthy, natural approach to the cuisine of our region.

We are experimenting and offering a variety of healthy options in our café. I invite you to stop by and discuss your thoughts and recipes with me as we focus on being a leader in wellness at Thibodaux Regional.
