I want to introduce you to Christine from “Cajun Country Rice”. Christine does not have a food blog just yet, but she is working on one now, and hopes to add it to their web site soon.
Please join me in welcoming Christine from Cajun Country Rice! She is sharing her recipe for Louisiana Jasmine Coq au Vin.
Christine Fulton is a wife and mother of five children, ranging in age from 22 months to twelve years old. She is a CPA and a third generation Falcon, helping run the family’s business, Falcon Rice Mill. She lives in Crowley, Louisiana, in the heart of Cajun Country.
So there is no surprise that the Falcon family’s signature rice is aptly named Cajun Country Rice. They mill many varieties, including long and medium grain white rice, brown rice, jasmine rice, the very popular popcorn rice, as well as several others. Christine is proud that Cajun Country Rice is 100% Louisiana rice from the fields to the
packaging. She loves to cook for her family and is especially excited to share one of her favorite recipes with Cajun Chef Ryan’s readers. Additional recipes can be found at cajuncountryrice.com.
The Cajun Country Jasmine Rice is 100% Louisiana Rice and has a wonderful aroma while it is cooking. It is an elegant rice that is the perfect pairing for Coq au Vin.
