It is no secret that some of the best food in the world can be found in New Orleans. It is often said that everywhere else people eat to live, but in New Orleans we live to eat. That's very true, as you know if you've ever been here. Face it, that's one of the main reasons you come. I've collected some of my favorite New Orleans recipes so that you can have a taste of New Orleans food between visits.
