The Fine Print Book Club presents Stir the Pot: The History of Cajun Cuisine
by Marcelle Bienvenu, Carl A. Brasseaux, and Ryan Brasseaux
Stir the Pot authors join THNOC staff in discussing the history, evolution, and role of food in Cajun society and what it means in the larger context of our unique Louisiana social spaces.
From debunking myths about Cajun cooking to exploring the fascinating place that food holds in Acadiana, Stir the Pot presents the complex history of a beloved yet often misunderstood ethnic cuisine. This reading pairs with our current exhibition, Cajun Document. It is one of several books that our staff members used to prepare for the opening of this exhibition.
