Exciting news! The Southern Food And Beverage Institute is going to join us on April 26th and will be introducing a cool new angle. We're going to-- ya ready for this?-- track the historic, cultural, and environmental evolution of Louisiana through the lens of a crawfish. Sounds fishy, I know, but here's the thing: as I learned today from SoFab Institute's Liz Williams, the crawfish has deep cultural significance in Louisiana going back thousands of years. And think about it- if we have no wetlands, no farmlands, and no clean water, we have no crawfish. And all this is just the beginning!
What I'm looking for now is someone planning on having a boil on April 26th who will let us follow them around with a camera as they buy the sacks of crawfish, as they clean them and as they boil them. And who will let us bring our on-camera talent to talk through this fascinating (OK, I think it's fascinating!) story line while possibly eating a few of their crawfish. And garlics. And corn and potatoes. (yum!)
