Episode 67: Sweet Dreams – Somethings Special From the Oven

We think of Louisiana’s culinary excellence most often in terms of the seafoods, gumbo, etouffees and the variety of pork dishes, but there is a whole other category for sweet things. Lafayette-based author Dixie Poche joins Errol Laborde, executive editor of Louisiana Life, along with podcast producer Kelly Massicot to discuss her book, “Louisiana Sweets: King Cakes; Bread Pudding and Sweet Dough Pie.”

You will discover the origins of many native desserts and learn more about the native produce that are in the mix.

Oh yes, we’ll also hear about a town that once had a festival to celebrate homemade cakes.
