Crescent City Farmers' Market Commemorates Cajun Cooking Legend
by Mary-Devon Dupuy
Louisiana has a rich history of food, and the people at CCFM want to celebrate those who have paved the way for chefs inside and outside of their homes. 2012 will be their fourth year to unveil a commemorative wooden token for a local chef who has passed. Over Memorial Day weekend, the Market unveiled a token commemorating an Avery Island legend. But don't worry, what follows isn't folklore about hot sauce.
CCFM functions as the face of marketumbrella.org, a nonprofit geared towards providing quality food to the masses. The people at the farmers’ market want to let shoppers know that they don’t have to be trained chefs to make dishes that reflect New Orleans’ fine culinary traditions, which is what makes Eula Mae Doré an ideal chef for them to commemorate.
Doré and her husband Walter managed the Commissary on Avery Island and cooked for several generations of the McIlhenny family, the inventors of Tabasco. Doré lost her mother when she was only ten years old, so she had to teach herself how to cook at an early age.
Despite her lack of formal training, she went from cooking for her family to cooking alongside world-renowned chefs like Jacques Pepin and Marion Cunningham. Eventually, all that know-how was written down in the famed "Eula Mae's Cajun Kitchen."
Director of Markets Emery Van Hook told us a little bit about how they chose Doré to be this year’s face of Louisiana cuisine.
“She began cooking at a very young age, and this is something that at the market we really look to instill in children. Learning where food comes from and the simplest preparations really set up a life of good eating,” Van Hook said.
As always, shoppers are welcome to use their cash, debit or credit cards to purchase wooden tokens which they can then use to shop with the local vendors at the weekly Farmers' Markets in the CBD on Saturdays, Mid-City on Thursdays and Uptown on Tuesdays.
