NOTES : From the cookbook: Food is taken seriously here in Louisiana, even
by young children. At a fish-fry at a camp on the levee that contains the
Atchafalaya River Basin, a swamp of incredible beauty in the sourhtgern
part of the state, I overheard two ten-year-olds discussing the merits of
the cole slaw that was part of the buffet. Etienne, who was on his second
helping, was telling his cousin Monique that he "couldn't ever" get enough
of the stuff. Monique replied that "Maw-Maw", their grandmother, sure knew
how to make good slaw. One taste made me agree. I went in search of Maw-Maw
and asked her to share her secret. Lou's note: All South LA grandmothers
are Maw-Maw.
