Here’s another throw-back Thursday from our trip to Louisiana. There’s a tiny company called the Konriko Rice Company in New Iberia, Louisiana. They do rice the old-fashioned way and they give tours to show how it’s done.
If you travel to New Iberia, be sure to stop by and tell Dynelle hello. She’s a treat to talk to and she gives wonderful suggestions for places to see locally. It’s not necessary to do the tour, although the movie at the beginning gives an educational and interesting account of Louisiana history–it explains how Cajuns became Cajuns, Creole history, and even a tragic love story. It is definitely worth a stop. Not only that, Dynelle will give you a free sample of their delicious rice. They also have marinades, hot sauces, seasonings–all kind of Louisiana flavor, and all can be purchased on their website.
