We put the final touches on the May/June issue last night, and it's spectacular If I say so myself. I'm particularly excited about the cover; it's magical. I get goosebumps when I look at it, and it's very appropriate for the first issue of our fourth year of business.
Which brings me to some housekeeping: we'll generate the subscriber mailing list for that issue in the next few days. If you have received a renewal notice from us but haven't gotten around to paying yet, stop and do so; you do NOT want to miss this next issue! Click or call 504-208-9959.
Also, just ten days left to enter to win the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience package at the Hotel Monteleone.
I have friends visiting this week from Nebraska; I'll be touring them around all day today, stuffing them with crawfish and po' boys. We may have to travel by pirogue, but at least it's a warm rain.
And finally, I want to offer congratulations to my good friend Chef Cory Bahr. I first met him five years ago this spring, and he continues to wow me. Last week we learned that he's won Food & Wine magazine's People's Choice: Best New Chef. Last year he won that for this region, this year he won overall. If you find yourself in the Monroe area, make sure you stop by Cotton and/or Nonna, his two spectacular restaurants in that town. You won't regret it.
It's spring festival season - see our calendar below. Whatever you do this weekend, enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind.
Susan Ford, President
