Tillamook Macaroni & Cheese

Tillamook cheddar is the secret ingredient to this creamy, velvety smooth mac and cheese. Tricky Fish starts with al dente Cavatappi noodles (aka corkscrews) and then folds in the Tillamook cream sauce. Oh so good. Want to pump it up a notch? Top with grilled chicken or shrimp.


Crawfish Etouffee

Nothing quite warms the soul like a big bowl of crawfish etouffee. Ours is a true Cajun classic, with shrimp, dirty rice, and crusty French bread included.


Kitchen Sink Gumbo

Our Kitchen Sink Gumbo is meant as a starter, but many order it as an entrée because it’s plenty big enough for a meal! Think chicken, Andouille sausage, shrimp, and fish all swimming in a Cajun gravy and served with white rice and crackers.
