Home Demonstration -Notes- MRS. MARGIE II. WILLIAMS Home Demonstration Agent HISTORY OF CRKOI.K COOKERY (First of a Series of Three Articles) The traditional Creole cook- pry of N'e\v Orleans is alone in its Uiivl. H is a luscious blend of the best, traditional cookery of France and Spain. It was interpreted by Negro cooks •who gave it the exotic touch which makes it, so distinctive. Louisiana belonged to France in the ISih century, a period in which the art and science of cookery was at its zenith and when principle and foundations ot the haute cuisine were laid and established by the famous chefs. The aristocratic cmegres who settled in Louisiana at this period brought with them the best traditions of tlio highest gastronomic culture, which .forms the basic of typical Creole cookery. In 17(!S, France ceded Louisiana to Spain. Within the course of a few years, inter- Tnurriage took place. A gradual infiltration of Spanish influence in cooking adds flavor to classical Frunch cooking. According to Morphy, the evolution of Creole cookery was interpretation of French and Spanish dishes by colored cooks. In some ways, these African natives had an extraordinary instinct for cooking. The r knowledge of culinary herbs is probably responsible for the extensive use of these in Creole cookery. Creole cuisine, being a combination of French and Spanish, means the Spanish bad a tas!e for strong seasoning in their food coimined with the French love for delicacies. All this originated in Louisiana. The following is taken from the book, "(iood Home Cooking Across the United Stales", by Nell B. Nichols. "New Orleans cookery got away to a colorful start. The unique culinary fame of the Creoles began wi'h a protest strike of less than a hundivd women, the wives of French soldiers. That was early in the ISth century. Thoy marched on the colonial governor to explain forcefully that they were tired of eating corn, and to demand wheat. Although the governor had no wheat, his store of diplomacy was large. He invited the women, he believed were homesick a.' well as hungry for familial dishes, to talk with his housekeeper, a French Canadian. ".Madame Langloi.-,, an accomplished culinary a r t i s'., knew the limitations of tile Louisiana larder. Fortunately she had been entorpi'isin;; enough to ask friendly Indian S(iua\vs, espi-c'ially the- excellent cooks of the Chochr.v tribe, to teach her how to prepare the native foods. Tbus she \vjs equipped technically to appease the sti'ikers. She, also, was of a diplomatic turn of mind. "Spontaneously she invited the discontented women to meet with her every week for a social afternoon and a lesson on how to handle local foodstuffs. The informal gatherings th^t followed blossomed into the first cooking school conducted in what is now the United States of America. It soothed and steadied nerves, turned out some tasty dishes. Madame Langlois taught her guests how to grind the detested corn between stones to make meal, and low to prepare cornbrcad to serve piping hot with wild honey obtained from the woods. She displayed the art of making hominy and grits. Next, she introduced the mystery of file, young sassafras leaves dried on stones, pounded and rubbed through hair sieves. It was a seasoning trkk of the Choctaws. "Butter beans and corn she paired in succotash. Then she demonstrated hi'V to broil young squirrels, and how to stuff and roast them; how t" fill fish with savory herb stuf- fings for baking, how to make vinegar from citrus fruits, and how to crystallize wild fruits. In memory of this service, she is now recognized as the mother of Creole cookery a la New Orleans. For a half century reverence for French delicacies stimulated kitchen procedures and then around 1760, Spai.i acquired Louisiana and the culinary art underwent a change."
