Cayenne, creole, crawfish ... you can get it all here on Long Island. No, you don't have to traipse off to the Big Easy to get your hands on some good ole gumbo or spicy jambalaya. Just head on over to the bayou, er ... Jericho Turnpike in Syosset, where there's a Mardi Gras party every day at  Mara's Homemade. It's the place that gives customers that down-home New Orleans experience, beads included. 

Host Meredith Daniels meets owner Mara Levi and learns how the chef  makes the most famous dish on the menu, crawfish cheesecake.
