    1Steve's Note:

    Originally from The Restaurants of New Orleans, Roy F, Guste, Jr., 1982, W. W. Norton & Co., Inc. This is excellent all year round, but is especially nice, cooling and refreshing in the summer months. I give the chef's original ice-cream flavor combo here, but feel free to experiment with different ice-cream flavors if you like.
