New Orleans



New Orleans, Louisiana

New Orleans, good ole New Orleans (pronounced New Orlins), the undisputed food capital of the South. In the Big Easy, the heat alone is enough to slow your pace. But when you sit down to a big meal on a hot day, you have no choice but to watch the world go by. People usually think Cajun food when they visit NOLA – New Orleans Louisiana – but are surprised at the international cuisine available. Settled by the Spanish and the French, NOLA is equipped to satisfy any taste bud. From muffuletta sandwiches (which owe a nod to local Italian immigrants), Italian ice cream to gumbo, the world of food is at your finger tips. Other hometown favorites are dirty rice, blackened redfish, Bananas Foster, King Cake, soft-shell crab po'boy sandwiches and the traditional Crescent City breakfast of beignets and chicory-flavored coffee with steamed milk (cafe au lait). Favor an extra splash of heat on your gumbo? Tabasco sauce is made on Avery Island, a bird and nature preserve.
