Yum, Yum, Yum!: A Taste of Cajun & Creole Cooking of Louisiana (1990) [Short]

USA (MIFF 1991 , Bayviews)
Director: Les Blank

Les Blank marries his obsession with spicy, down home food and his fascination for the Cajuns and Creoles of Southern Louisiana, to create this mouth watering exploration into the cooking and culture of the region. From the bayous and prairies where this unique cuisine originated, to the New Orleans kitchen of celebrity chef Paul Prudhomme, Blank discovers the heart and souls of a people and their cuisine. Yum, Yum, Yum affords us an insiders look at a non-homogenised culture by focusing on how people nourish themselves.
