Devils on Horseback

Devils on Horseback

Wrapping things in bacon has been a practice throughout history! Devils on Horseback was created in Victorian era working class England, and the hors d’œuvre got its name because it was often paired with the equally popular Angels on Horseback (bacon wrapped oysters). Over time, oysters went from being a poor-man's food to a delicacy and the appetizer pair phased out of style, but the Devils on Horseback has seen a renaissance recently, popping up on menus all over.

Heritage Andouille Jambalaya

Jambalaya with Andouille and Prawns with Cajun Vermouth Butter

While every culture has a stew, the Jambalaya originated in Southern Louisiana in the 18th century, with origins before that in Africa and Spain. Jambalaya is rice cooked usually with ham, sausage, chicken, shrimp, or oysters and seasoned with herbs. From that definition comes a myriad of different variations including the Cajun tradition and the Creole tradition, among others. The dish boasts a particular blend of herbs and vegetables — think the holy trinity of bell peppers, onion, and celery, which is a version of the classic mirepoix, but with bell peppers in place of carrots. More often than not, Jambalaya features andouille sausage, a variety many people try to make but only few make well (hint: heritage breeds raised on pasture helps!).
