Hurricane Ida made landfall on August 29, 2021, cutting a path of destruction across part of South Louisiana. La Place, Louisiana was particularly hard hit, and La Place happens to be the hometown of Smidgen host and owner of Red Stick Spice Company, Anne Milneck.

From that ruin, Anne responded by creating a beautiful tribute, Pathway: A Culinary Journal. One part recipe collection, one part guidebook, Pathway contains gorgeous pictures, enticing recipes, and a special invitation to visit these places that were most profoundly impacted by Ida.

Join us on this episode of Smidgen to explore Pathway through the stories and recipes of this special region of Louisiana.
