Yesterday’s post was saved as a draft rather than being published because I managed to push the wrong button or something. I will be posting yesterdays post first, then I’ll be posting today’s post a little later today.
Let’s dive into the wonderful food culture of New Orleans. My mom and i always wanted to go to New Orleans to experience the amazing culture, the Jazz and of course the wonderful food culture. Dominating the New Orleans kitchen is a great mix of Creole, Cajun, Soul food and a large variety of seafood.
Soul food is something that is well known in the Southern states, and especially in New Orleans. What I love about it is that there are economically friendly ingredients and you don’t have to use a lot of money to be able to bring a plate of a hot meal on the dinner table. Soul food comes from the African American culture with influence from native American.
I love that New Orleans has such a large variety of foods and that their cuisine is a mix of several cultures mixed into one. Another thing is that I’ve heard that you can get the best Cuban sandwich you could ever imagine in the french quarter among other delights. Talking about this amazing city, and writing about it make me want to visit even more. If I ever go to New Orleans I will be creating a “Hetty in New Orleans” food special, and post at least one if not even more posts every day while I’m there and all the amazing food I would be experiencing. I have to put it on hold though, I first have a business trip to New York in May, then I have a few other places to go this summer and this late fall, around October/early November I might be taking a trip to Texas to visit my best friend who lives there and her family. One thing is for sure, this is going to be a busy year. If I don’t manage to squeeze in a trip to New Orleans this year, there is always next year. The food culture in New Orleans and the culture itself is worth the trip, and I’m looking forward to visiting one day, this year or next.
If you ever go to New Orleans there are a few dishes you need to try out. First off; Jambalaya, my sources says that it will be the best version you’ve ever had, same goes for gumbo. Let’s not forget the Cuban sandwich, the list is long on what you need to try. I do have the list though, and if you’re ever in New Orleans send me a message/e-mail and I’ll give you some great tips on where to eat and what to try if you’re looking for a good place to dine. I have a friend who lives in New Orleans with his wife and kids and he knows about what’s good and where to go. Send me a message and I’ll tell you about the food and the places to go.
This was it for today, It’s been a long day and I still have a lot to do before the day is over. I need to get some work done on my book and It’s laundry day as well-
I hope y’all are having an amazing day and I hope to see y’all back here tomorrow for a new post.
