What Brings Us Together

Presentation Video

A cookbook, family archive, and historical account of Louisiana Creoles, “What Brings Us Together” serves as a reminder of our collective role as storymakers. Lex Jacquet offers a fresh perspective on how people use food to reflect and shape their human experience by adopting an interdisciplinary approach that combines cultural anthropology, food journalism, and oral ethnography to analyze the historiography of Louisiana Creole identity and foodways.
