Cajun Food Using the Freshest Ingredients
Using only the freshest ingredients, and using the time –honored, slow-cooked culinary traditions of South Louisiana, all dishes at LouZiana Food are made with homemade stocks, fresh herbs and vegetables, best quality meats and seafood. LouZiana Food’s own signature, packaged blend of spices – is used for seasoning, coatings and sauces.
Fresh is essential – French bread, made as close as possible to the classic, New Orleans French Po’boy bread, is baked and delivered fresh daily for LouZiana Food. Sweet treats like the Beignets are made, rolled out, cut and made to order – using New Orleans’ famous Café Du Monde recipe. LouZiana Food’s own Bread Pudding recipe is from Mr. Raleigh Terrebonne, Pete’s dad, and finished with a delicious Whiskey Butter Sauce – courtesy of Pam Terrebonne.
It’s all fresh. It’s all good.
Cooking Cajun Cuisine Takes Time
Just what makes South Louisiana cooking so good? LouZiana Food believes it’s a bone-deep, time-honored, love and understanding of what it takes to be and to cook Cajun.
Owner Pete Terrebonne’s family heritage is Cajun-French from Lafourche Parish, in South Louisiana. Two hundred and fifty years of tradition of Cajun cooking, passed down from generation to generation, seasons every pot and pan used in LouZiana Food’s kitchens.
Pete moved to San Diego in 1988 from Galliano, Louisiana. He credits his maternal grandmother, Miss Nola Griffin Pitre, of Golden Meadow, Louisiana, for the authentic Cajun recipes used at LouZiana Food.
Traditional Cajun cooking requires a lot of time, preparation and a lot of patience to achieve the rich combination of complex flavors that make our food so good, so special. Rich, dark, mahagony roux; slow cooked-homemade stocks; fresh herbs and spices.
Authentic + Family + Tradition+ Fresh = Delicious. Welcome to LouZiana Food.
Our State-of-the-art Food Truck
As for our Food Truck, Pete bought a brand new, unfinished trailer in Georgia and drove it back to San Diego. He then designed and finished out the trailer from the inside out – doing all the plumbing, electrical, paneling etc. – and purchased and installed all of the necessary equipment, and then had the trailer “wrapped” – with its signature logo and bright Mardi Gras colors.
