Guest Speaker: George Graham

When George Graham sinks his teeth into a juicy story, you can be assured it will be in good taste.  He is a food writer who is curious about his subject and passionate about his craft.  An award-winning cook, photographer, and author, his 320-page cookbook collection of stories and recipes Acadiana Table: Cajun and Creole Home Cooking from the Heart of Louisiana published by Harvard Common Press is now in bookstores nationwide.

George has lived in South Louisiana for all his life. He has been an avid student, chronicler, and photographer of the region's culture and culinary traditions. Born into a restaurant family and a former restaurateur himself, he has written about Southern food for newspapers, magazines, and he has been a finalist on television's Food Network Challenge.  In 2013 he launched the blog Acadiana Table: George Graham's Stories of Louisiana Cooking and Cajun/Creole Culture, which already has been a finalist for Best Food Blog: Regional Cuisine in Saveur magazine's 2014 Best Food Blog Awards and also for Best Food Blog in the 2015 and 2017 IACP Digital Media Awards--a remarkable record for such a young blog.
