Authentic Creole Fat Tuesday meal served at Bell Tower Residence February 28
Holy Cross Sister John Marie Simien will once again share her Creole roots through food at the Fat Tuesday Gumbo Supper. The event will be Tuesday, February 28 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Assisi Hall at Bell Tower Residence Assisted Living, 1500 O'Day St. Merrill. Cost is $10. $7 for carry outs. $4 for children under 12.
Sister John Marie grew up in the Mallet Bayou in Louisiana where she lived until she was 20 years old. Her parents only spoke French and she learned English from her older brothers and sisters. She is the second youngest of 15 children.
She learned to cook from her mother and doesn't follow a recipe. "I learned to cook by taste, that's how Creole people cook. The food becomes a part of us and our culture."
