My husband is from Denham Springs, Louisiana and we lived there for six years after we married. Now we are in California and he really misses the fabulous food and especially the Community Coffee. The only thing I see missing from the basket is Zapp's Chips (in the red bag). We stock up when we visit! Thanks for the great giveaway.

I have never been to Louisiana, but I would be most excited to receive the cookbook, so then I could make so many more meals. It would last beyond when the food that came with it was gone. My family would love it :)

Good morning. Great looking gift box. Enjoy your day!

Winona said...

I've never been yet, but I hope to one day soon. As for what I would want most...the cookbook, because it would give me a start to learning how to cook Louisiana style. I'm a Canadian girl living in Missouri and am fascinated by American cooking - and even cooked my first batch of collard greens last night!

aud1inok said...

My favorite part was the friendliness of everybody. I'd love to visit again!

Omi said...

I LOVED the food. It was truly amazing and I can't wait to take my husband back to share it with him.

Lisa said...

I have not been to Louisiana yet, but am hoping to!! My husband LOVES southern cooking ... gumbo, jambalaya, greens, crawfish, everything .... The cook book is what I'm looking forward to!

Karen said...

Never been to da bayou, but have very close friends that are from there and all they talk about are beignets at cafe du monde....going to have to make a trip there one of these days. So I'm anxious to make them. Thanks for your giveaway opportunity.

adriecg said...

I only stopped in New Orleans on a cruise but I can't wait to go back. My dad went to Mardi Gras and the jazz festivals every year so I'd like to explore what he loved!!!

Christina in MO said...

I haven't had the opportunity to visit Louisiana, but our family is a huge fan of Zatarains products. When we lived in California, we had a staple of red beans and rice in our house! Adding a little ground meat, put it in a tortilla..and you have some gooooood eatin! I'd be most excited to have the File. Have always wanted to make traditional gumbo, and I know this is a key ingredient!

Megan from WV said...

oh my goodness! all that food looks AWESOME. I have never been to Louisiana, but I have a good friend who used to live in Mississippi who raved about gumbo and stuff. I've always wanted to try it! I guess some of the things i'm looking forward to the most would have to be...the 'slap your mama' Cajun spice - my brother went to India for a semester and can never get enough spice - the community coffee cappuccino mix (gotta have my coffee!), and the cookbook. I always love good recipes and could always use another great cookbook

Megeanes said...

I've never been to Lousiana, but would love the shrimp and crab boil. I have always wanted do a crab boil. Hoping to do one this summer with my neighbors.

Heather Wilson said...

I spent all of my teenage years and married my husband in Louisiana. We moved away for my husband's work, and we miss it so much. My husband's always complaining about how you can't get good Louisiana food in Virginia, and I miss crabbing near Holly Beach!

Greg said...

I've only been to Louisiana once, but would LOVE to go back...especially since I have a more advanced pallet now than just that fast food restaurant that the farmer who's pigs go "oink, oink" ran...even if it's only a trip for spices and the like!

I was 18 and had never been to Louisana. It was aroun d Easter and the weather was fairly warm considering Missouri at the time was still kinda chilly. Went done to Bourbon Street. Loved the jazz music, the artists, the whole artitechual (sp) of the buildings with balconies, the spicy food although later that first evening I suffered with heartburn, went to the riverfront and inside the big Cathedral, when I was at the riverfront, i stood very close to a Russian ship. I remember looking up as far as I could to see the top of the ship which you know was impossible to do standing so close. I, also, remeber that someone drugged me into a voodoo shop and I ran out of it as soon as I seen what it was. All in all, I loved it and would really like to go back again.

Cindy S said...
