New Orleans: Cafe Du Monde

There is nothing better than fried beignets covered with a mountain of powdered sugar. Personally, it was way too hot for me to have coffee, so I opted for a frozen latte which was sweet and shockingly tasted like really strong coffee. Delicious! They give you some ice-cold water, because after all that powdered sugar, you will need it.

I have loved cooking and baking since I was 5 years old. It was the one activity that I would share with all my extended family. Like most people, I love traveling. I love visiting the markets, exploring unknown ingredients, and bringing them back home with me for inspiration. I find that recipes with simple and pure ingredients yield the best results.

  1. I’ve never been to New Orleans but have always wanted to go. Creole food is one of my favorites! I’d love to see a post on some local Jambalaya (and if I’m really lucky, maybe a recipe from a local chef!). How’s it looking down there? Is it a good time to start making plans for a visit or should I wait till a bit more rebuilding is done? Thanks!

    1. Peanut Butter and Jealous!–Thanks for stopping by! I think it is a great time to visit, as most of the places you are likely to visit are in tip top shape now. Everyone in NOLA is extremely nice and there is so much to see. Also, great food. There are a few cooking classes that focus on creole/cajun food. I regret not being able to set up a trip to go fishing or gathering for crabs/oysters. I think it may be a while before I go back to do something like that because of the oil spill.
