2) Louisiana's French Creole Culinary & Linguistic Traditions: Facts vs. Fiction Before and Since Cajunization $39.95
Ever wonder why you CANNOT find Mardi Gras in Acadian Canada? Why they don't know what gumbo and maque choux are? Why their French is different from our Louisiana French? Did your grandparents insist themselves to be CREOLE? -even though Lafayette's mass-marketing efforts give the impression that ONLY BLACK people are Creole? And, are you one of us that KNOWS that your ancestors were NOT ACADIAN FRENCH, but came from Spain, France, Africa, or were Irish or Italian or Germanic or even native-American Creoles? Yet, you may be confused because of Lafayette's mass-marketing machinery and CODOFIL have long given the impression that ALL WHITE FRENCH SPEAKERS MUST BE "CAJUN?" Wonder why our Louisiana French is so full of Choctaw words? Obviously, there were no Choctaws in Acadian Canada, so what is really going on when Lafayette labels our old Louisiana French dialects of Colonial French and Afro-Creole as "Cajun French?" The answers to these questions and much more relative to Louisiana's food and language history are now available for all to know the truth-at last! In this 107 p. hardcover book enriched with antique black and white photos as well as the beautiful full-color images of Norris Fontenot, Louisiana's multi-ethnic Creoles will at last have HONEST answers grounded in solid research from the historians and linguistic scholars who deal with facts and not slogans! To order send us an email to CREOLEBOOKSTORE@HOTMAIL.COM
ATTENTION: 3RD PRINTING OF COMMEMORATIVE EDITION W/ AUTOGRAPH & fleur de lis NOW AVAILABLE.
