Our food, music and spices are exported around the world but they are missing the secret ingredient.  The people; a special blend of seasoning. A little Cajun French, a pinch of Creole, a dash of Spanish, African, Caribbean and a touch of Angelo and BAM you got the most unique culture in our country.
