What is your favorite combo of food & wine? What foods with what wine?
Where I live now is the heart of L'Acadie, one would never believe that the Acadians who became the Cajuns are the same group of people cuisine wise. Things here are a tad... bland. The first year I lived here, I had a bumper crop of tomatoes, and was making and canning salsa. I didn't have much luck with my peppers so I bought about a dozen jalapenos at the local grocery. The clerk at the checkout was nearly apoplectic. "Do you have any idea how hot these are?"I live in South Louisiana between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. I have an endless supply of fresh seafood as well as a multitude of other fine cuisine's which many revolve around seafood.
Well, New Brunswick, from where I live I can still see Acadian Dikes, throw a rock and hit Ft. St. Laurence (Ft. BeauSeJour under the French) and practically spit in the Bay of Fundy. There was a huge Acadian/Cajun homecoming about 3 years ago, and they came back from all over. Evangeline country is further south down towards Annapolis Royal. (Some good wineries down that way and one place that makes a truly glorious dry apple cider)Good one. I think she is from the "Original" Heart of Acadiana. I believe she is in Nova Scotia. Our housekeeper says Hi. She is a New Iberia girl.
