It’s authentic Louisiana cookin' in a box!

Camellia Brand

I was on a Navy submarine in the South China Sea during Vietnam; my father sent me a huge box of Camellia red beans – so many that I gave the cooks our family recipe and hosted a red beans & rice dinner (with French bread and spiced pork chops) for the whole crew. I can’t tell you our exact position, but we were at a depth where many sea critters turn on their headlights.
