My kitchen memories began very early, I was probably eight years old when I started prepping in my mom’s kitchen. I remember chopping, chopping and more chopping to prepare dinners. Unbeknownst to me I was prepping the “trinity”.
No, I’m talking about the Holy Trinity, I’m talking about the ”cooking trinity” which consist of fresh onions, bell peppers, and celery. These three vegetables are the most important ingredients in Creole and Cajun traditional recipes. Maybe I should call it the trinity+1 since there is one special ingredient that I always use.... “garlic”.
These fresh ingredients are used in the Lagniappe Today’s gumbo, jambalaya, chicken Creole, red beans, and etouffee.
I could go on forever but I think you get it, just like I got it, the “trinity” puts the authentic in Louisiana cuisine. Other popular herbs and spices used in my dishes are fresh parsley, chives, bay leaves and other aromatic and flavorful garnishes. But the trinity is the number one, two and three ingredients that are used to make Lagniappe Today an Authentic Louisiana Cuisine food truck.
And yes I still chop, chop, chop……
