rabbit stewEmbracing and learning the skills of our Cajun, Creole and Native American forebears has never been easier with Vermilionville’s newest series, Les Mains Guidées (French for Guided Hands).

Les Mains Guidées is a workshop that allows locals and visitors alike to learn crafts from Vermilionville’s master artisans on the second Tuesday of every month. Topics will range from woodworking, to textiles to foodways and so many things in between.

This month, on Feb. 11 from 6-8 p.m., Vermilionville artisan Em LeMieux will lead a workshop on open hearth cooking. In this hands-on class, participants will learn about how to properly use a Dutch oven as well as how to apply open hearth techniques to a modern setting.

A fee of $25 covers material costs, and at the end of the night, participants will be able to eat a rabbit stew that they cooked themselves. Anyone age 12 and over is invited to sign up by contacting Jolie Johnson at (337) 233-4077 or by e-mailing her at This email address is being protected from spambots.
