Heritage Lecture: The Fonville Winans Cookbook

Although Fonville Winans is internationally recognized for photographing Grand Isle’s Depression-Era Cajuns and Baton Rouge brides and debutantes, he was also as an excellent cook. Fonville’s daughter-in-law, Melinda Winans, recently collaborated with Cynthia Nobles, cookbook author and editor for LSU Press, to publish Fonville’s biography and over 100 of his original recipes. Join us as we sample recipes from the new cookbook and learn more about the fascinating life and photographic works of Fonville Winans.
