Edible Inspired Conversation with Kathleen Hill and Sondra about Paul Prudhomme.
Tonight’s menu is inspired by Paul Prudhomme. Just in time for Mardi Gras!!!
Paul Prudhomme is known for bringing Cajun cooking from coast to coast.
Born to a large Southern family and learning to cook at his mother’s side (without electricity or refrigeration!), Chef Paul found an early appreciation for fresh ingredients prepared with regional flare.
Prudhomme made a name for himself as chef of the Commander’s Palace in the heart of the Garden District of New Orleans before launching his own restaurant, K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen, in 1979. Subsequent cookbook’s and cooking series’ brought his love of Cajun cooking into the kitchens of people all over the country with signature recipes like Blackened Redfish, Turtle Soup, and Turducken.
