The March/April issue (pictured at right) is selling briskly, and, even better, is bringing in a lot of new subscribers. Many of you are receiving this newsletter for the first time this week -- welcome! I hope you enjoy it,
It's our Third Anniversary Issue --
That's 22 magazines with more than 1,300 exclusive recipes, all for just $80. Most of the recipes do not appear anywhere else; I occasionally publish one of the magazine recipes on the newsletter, but not very often. More details and the order form can be found here.
Once again, in partnership with the Hotel Monteleone, we are hosting a sweepstakes for the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience, held Memorial Day weekend. One lucky person will win three nights at the luxurious Hotel Monteleone, tickets for two to the Royal Street Stroll and the Friday night Grand Tastings, plus vouchers for cocktails at the famed Carousel Bar and breakfast at Crillo Restaurant. Click here to enter, and good luck!
On Tuesday, April 7, the New Orleans chapter of the American Culinary Federation presents Best Chefs Louisiana -- some of the state's best chefs and restaurants will be represented. The event is at the New Orleans Marriott at the convention center; tickets are selling quickly. It's a lot of fun, great food, and a great cause. More information and tickets are here.
Each year, Food & Wine opens up ballots for The People's Best New Chef. Voting is open now -- of the ten chefs vying for the award in the Gulf Coast category, seven are from Louisiana. I'm not surprised.
Congratulations, and good luck to Cory Bahr, Cotton and Nonna; Michael Doyle, Maurepas; Kristen Essig, Meauxbar; Juan Carlos Gonzales, SoBou; Michael Gulotta, MoPho; Phillip Lopez, ROOT and Square Root; and Ryan Prewitt, Peche. Voting ends on April 8. Click here to vote early, and make sure to vote often.
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
