New Orleans

Bourbon Street Sign in New OrleansBucket List 
I turned 50 a few weeks ago and to mark the occasion, y’all, my amazing husband has gifted me with the opportunity to scratch an item off my bucket list. I am heading to the Big Easy, cher!

Those of you who have been following this blog for a while will know that I have an affinity for all things Cajun and Creole. There are numerous posts about favorite dishes, cookbooks, or chefs in our archives. For decades I have dreamed about eating my way through the city of New Orleans and, starting this week, I get to do exactly that.

This is my sport of choice and I feel like I have been training for this for years.  I am currently at the top of my game. I am unstoppable. Bring on the beignets…

In honor of this momentous occasion, I present to you a list of just a few of the recipes from chefs and restaurants we have featured over the years, in case you feel inspired. I highly recommend you give them a look. There are some good ones in there.

So, until next week, mes amis, laissez les bon temps rouler!!!
