I've spent some time visiting New Orleans, and from my first taste of crawfish étouffée to my last bite of fried oyster po'boy (dressed, naturally), I was hooked on an entire culture's cuisine for the first time. I seriously dreamed butter roux and mirepoix for months after. When the holidays came around, all I wanted was big pots of Cajun food, and why not mix it up with some Korean twists?!
kimchi grilled cheese
ddukbokki with okra & andouille
boudin blanc/noir & pork belly bbq
korean dirty rice
choco pie with vanilla ice cream and pralines
for the stragglers
shin ramen, straight from the pot
