It’s been a great 2013 here in Burnside, Louisiana. I started this blog a year ago in the hopes of exposing the classic charm and history of The Cabin Restaurant, The Cajun Village, and Bernadette’s Restaurant to the rest of the world. Each of these three businesses, and our little community here in the heart of Louisiana’s historic Plantation Country, is something I treasure dearly. The rolling sugar cane fields that hem in the Mississippi, the stately antebellum plantation homes, the charming towns like Donaldsonville in Sorrento – these form a perfect setting for a rich, Cajun culture that has flourished in Ascension Parish for nearly 300 years. I am glad you have taken the time over the past year to read, follow, and fall in love with the community I call home. Here’s to a great 2013 and even better 2014! I can’t wait to share more Creole/Cajun dishes, more Cajun culture, and more Louisiana history with you over the next 12 months.
