I was recently asked where “home is.” My answer is not complicated, but neither is it simple. My father was in the Petrochemical industry all of my youth, so we traveled, a lot. New Jersey, St. Louis, Baton Rouge and Switzerland, to name some of our “homes.” Then I chose to live in Lafayette and Baton Rouge, Louisiana again for college and career. The best part of these travels is that I learned a sense of adventure. And I learned a sense of local cuisine. We all have our indigenous and inherited local recipes and favorites. In my first few visits to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, I realized that Smoked Tuna Dip is one of the local favorites!
