If you like it hot, use as many of the hot chilies as you like, or leave them out. With some grilled chicken or fish or shrimp, makes a very nice meal. Cooking time does not include defrosting time if you have to use frozen okra.
The name derives from the first owner, Emile Commander, who opened this New Orleans institution in 1880 in the Garden District. In 1974, the Brennans took over and started the famous jazz brunch. This mousse, served with raspberry sauce, is a staple of the menu. Prep time does not include chilling time. Plan to make a custard or sabayon with the egg yolks you'll have left over.
In the Garden District, on famous St. Charles Avenue, the Caribbean Room in the Ponchartrain Hotel has been serving wonderful food in a charming atmosphere since 1948. This Red Snapper is a signature dish.
Broussard's--at 819 Conti Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans--may be the most romantic place to eat dinner in all of the United States--especially on a lovely night when you're eating in the courtyard. And this shrimp dish, rich yet elegant, is typical of Broussard fare.
Another wonderful recipe from Betty Fussell's "I Hear America Cooking," this cake is rich with butter and dark molasses, but lightened with eggs and smoothed with sour cream. Cooking time does not include time for cake to cool.
Every Cajun makes Maquechoux, but no two recipes are alike. This one comes from Betty Fussell's wonderful book, "I Hear America Cooking." It's not a dish for everyday--very rich, but it surely puts most creamed corn recipes to shame.
This heavenly sauce is served over vanilla ice cream at Visko's Restaurant, just south of New Orleans in Gretna. It's dangerously addictive. The recipe is supposed to enough for eight servings---I've seen 4 people make it disappear with no trouble at all. Prep time does not include cooling time.
This is from the menu of the Court of Two Sisters, a charming restaurant on Royal Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans. In the same location, two sisters really did run a shop from 1886 until they died within 2 months of each other in 1924. The property has been operated as a restaurant since 1963.
M. Franey offered this recipe for those of us who like our rice cooked separately from our Jambalaya. It's an interesting way to make the rice, though don't try if you don't have a good, heavy sauce pan to make it in.
Imagine you are on the coast of Normandy. You are sitting at a small table in a small cafe facing the docks. You pick up an oyster, sprinkle it with the shallot sauce and you pop it in your mouth--Heaven! The slightly briny, slightly coppery taste of those wonderful oysters offset perfectly by the sprinkling of vinaigrette.
