This is my blog dedicated to New Orleans & Louisiana cooking! I'll give links to great Creole & Cajun recipes and sites, as well as some of my own recipes. I love talkin' New Orleans, food and otherwise! Incidentally, I'm from Detroit. Go Figure. Lets just say I figured out "what it means, to miss New Orleans" and this site helps ease the pain.
What I wouldn't give to be standing at the bar at Felix's with a cold Dixie and a couple dozen oysters. Oysters aren't super easy to come by in the Detroit area, and they're on the pricey side. At the last two restaurants I've cooked, we served a few different varieties, it was nice to have that connection. So when I get to New Orleans I eat my fill! My buddy Tom and I always say, Oysters save our lives during Mardi Gras! I love 'em all ways: Fried, fried on a Po' Boy, baked, in soup, skewered, and on and on. But the best way is raw on the half-shell, with a couple of drops of Tabasco. I'll surely have more posts about oysters, as well as some great recipes on New Orleans Cuisine.
