Smoked Tuna Dip Trail

February 12, 2016 by Renee Areng

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!
