Thanks for visiting Great Cajun Cooking. My name is
James Callaway. By day, I'm a software developer for a hydrographic
survey company in Lafayette, LA. The only thing I really enjoy more
than the computers is cooking. In November 1999, Donny Fontenot, a
good friend, asked if I could build a website. Without any
hesitation, I said sure. Man, I didn't have a clue as to what I had
gotten myself into until it was too late.
Our early versions of this site were on Tripod. Interest
in the site was unbelievable, I couldn't keep up with the static
pages. So, in May 2000, we registered this domain,
GreatCajunCooking.com, and have been here since.
We created this site so we can share the great food and lifestyle we
enjoy with you! We hope that you will find the information here
I consider this site my personal cookbook. How many times
have you prepared a wonderful meal and people ask you for the recipe?
Now I just direct them here. If you would like to have your recipes
here send them in.
Born and raised in New Orleans, I really didn't
know how unique the Cajun and Creole lifestyles are. You know how
easy it is to take the things you've known since day one, for
granted. In the late 80's, I moved to Lafayette, LA. There is no way
you can hide from the Cajun Culture in Lafayette; it's everywhere.
Heck, my kids speak French! If you have never been to Southern
Louisiana, shame on you.
