Ms. Lucy Zaunbrecher is here with her popular cooking series Ms. Lucy’s Classic Cajun Culture & Cooking. In the series, the Gueydan, Louisiana native prepares authentic Cajun recipes handed down to her from her mother and grandmother and shares some entertaining stories about growing up in Cajun country. All the recipes utilize Louisiana products such as tomatoes, peaches, strawberries, sweet potatoes, quail and pecans, and, of course, great Louisiana seafood such as crawfish, shrimp, prawns and oysters.
Lucy takes viewers on some unique Louisiana adventures during the series. She goes deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, tours the Tabasco plant to see how that great hot sauce is made, picks pecans and strawberries, and in a scene reminiscent of another famous Lucy, she jumps into a vat to stomp grapes to make wine.
During the series, Lucy is joined in the kitchen by her granddaughter Lucy McKenzie and special guests such as Chef Hans Karrodi and duck guide Boo Monceaux.
Lucy’s series is distributed nationally by the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA) and also airs on the RFD Network.
Ms. Lucy’s Classic Cajun Culture & Cooking is underwritten by Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation & Tourism, the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board and the Louisiana Crawfish Promotions & Research Board.
Ms. Lucy’s Cajun Classroom is the most recent of her cooking series.
