Sharon's Creole Kitchen Story
I started cooking at an early age with my mother, aunts and grandmother. They would tell me stories about our family's history in Louisiana as we all prepared old family recipes and created new ones. These moments gave me a deep appreciation and pride for my heritage. I found wonderful satisfaction in cooking homemade dishes for my family and friends. Good food, good friends, and great family; these were inseparable.
After a bout with breast cancer, I knew it was my time to get back to doing what I so enjoyed doing. I believe God knew my heart's desire and He has truly blessed me with the place & opportunity again to where I can share my passion for people and food. So please, sit back and relax, and know that Sharon's Creole Kitchen is serving up "LOVE YOU CAN TASTE"

To really get into the diverse and deep flavors of creole cooking, you need to start even before the great Louisiana residents began stirring up pots of spicy crawfish and chaurice. While the world knows that creole is the taste of New Orleans, the origins of this popular cuisine have deeper global roots than most even realize.
New Orleans and the surrounding areas were settled by people from all across the globe from diverse nationalities and ethnic heritages: French, Spanish, Portuguese, and even Native American to name a few. This rich heritage is evident throughout most of the Creole culture, including some of their most famous dishes. Some of the most well-known Creole dishes use a combination of all of these heritages to create a uniquely Louisiana flavor.
Creole is more than just a type of cuisine. Eating in the Creole culture is more than just a thing that you have to do for survival. Meal times are a time of great gatherings, socializing, and being with the ones that you cherish the most.
