I'm an avid reader, so this event is always a lot of fun for me. Each year the New Orleans Museum of Art hosts an "edible book" competition, in which amateur and professional pastry chefs alike create and decorate fantastical cakes themed after their favorite books. I've been asked once again to judge -- it's based on looks, creativity, "punniness" etc. so stop by and be prepared to laugh if you enjoy a good book. In years past we've had Curious George, The Cat in the Hat, the sorting hat from Hogwarts, and Charlotte's Web, to name a few.
I love hearing stories from readers about what they've cooked from the magazine. Sandy from Albuquerque wrote to say she'd made jambalaya, and crab cakes from recent issues that had "brought the house down." Lyn from New Jersey made the cover etouffee recipe in the current issue, substituting shrimp for the crawfish. Al in Baton Rouge is learning to cook; he's working on roux, and red beans and rice. What about you? What are some things you've made based on recipes from the magazine? Drop me an email and let me know.
The weather's supposed to be great on Saturday, and there are plenty of outdoor festivals to choose from. Choose one -- or three! -- and have some fun. Enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind.
