We're debating. We've got slow-cooked beef brisket in a rich brown gravy. Visually, what says comfort food more? Served over a thick slice of rustic bread? Or over a fat buttermilk biscuit? Click here and tell us what you think.
Last night I went to the first of a series of wine dinners at Galatoire's in Baton Rouge. Chef Michael Sichel creates some dishes specifically for the dinners, but also serves up Galatoire's classics from time to time. Last night's entrée was a smoked lamb loin. If you missed out, not to worry, there are more scheduled, but seating is limited and they do sell out. Click here for dates and more information.
The Great American Seafood Cookoff is coming up on August 2 at the Ernest N. Morial convention center in New Orleans. Chefs from 18 states will be competing for the title of King or Queen of American Seafood; Louisiana will be represented by Chef Aaron Burgau, of Patois Restaurant. Tickets to the event are available in advance at New Orleans-area Whole Foods for $5.00; they will be available at the door for $10.00. (Note that the tickets do not allow access to the Louisiana Foodservice & Hospitality Expo.) You will find me there, fork in hand.
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
