This past weekend I took a short trip to New Orleans, and what a yummilicious time I had! I stuffed myself silly – here are some of the highlights:
Beignets at Cafe Du Monde
A cooking class/demonstration at Crescent City Cooks:
Etouffee – this was my fave; you could taste the butter in every bite!
A trip to NOLA wouldn’t be complete without pralines.
Fried Oyster Sandwich at Cafe Maspero
Charbroiled Oysters at Drago’s (these were AWESOME!)
We also tried the Crabmeat Au Gratin Dip (cheezy goodness)
and the Shrimp ‘N Grits with Tasso
I definitely lucked out in the food department in NOLA! With the penchant for anything buttered, sugared, fried or carby, I knew I’d be in for a treat. Yum . Aaaand now I’m craving a praline – anybody got some lying around?
Have you ever been to New Orleans? What was your favorite food there?
