Celebrate Mardi Gras with Detroit's Louisiana Creole

Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is coming up next week. It's the last day of the Carnival season that officially gets started on Friday in New Orleans. 

If you can't make it down south for the celebration, you can celebrate here in Detroit still with some authentic New Orleans cuisine. 

Stephanie Spencer and Tiarah Winston from Louisiana Creole joined us on The Nine to tell us more about their food. You can hear from them in the video player above, and get their recipe for N'awlins Style BBQ Shrimp here

Louisiana Creole Gumbo has two locations: the original location at 2501 Gratiot Avenue in Detroit, and also at 13505 W Seven Mile Road.
