ST. JOSEPH, Minn. – The Krewe restaurant is a tribute to Mary Mackbee, a former high school principal who raised four children in Minnesota on the cooking of her native New Orleans.

"More than anything, gumbo is the smell I remember," said Mateo Mackbee, one of those children and the chef and co-owner of the restaurant. "That's one you would get outside the front door."

Mateo Mackbee was in the dining room of Krewe, a window-lined eatery in a new low-rise building at in downtown St. Joseph, a community of 7,000 near St. Cloud that's home to the College of St. Benedict. His mother was there, too, sharing stories about her life and overseeing the jambalaya that Mackbee's 21-year-old son, Makel, was cooking for takeout service later that day.
