Welcome to Louisiana Kitchen
I enjoyed crawfish yesterday at the groundbreaking ceremony for Chef Duke LoCicero's "Duke's on the Basin" restaurant scheduled to open July 4th weekend on the lakefront in New Orleans.
That area was ravaged by storm surges during Hurricane Katrina; this restaurant/dock/seafood market/general store is a major stepping stone to rebuilding the area. Photos from the afternoon are here on our Facebook Fan Page.
Jyl and I are lucky judges in two upcoming fundraisers—tickets for both are on sale now. Stop by and say hello; they both benefit children.
Heartstrings and Angel Wings Gumbo Cookoff in Henderson, LA, March 10
Hogs for the Cause competition, New Orleans, LA, March 24
And finally, our friend Chef Michael Farrell kicks off the sixth annual French Quarter Wine Festival on Friday, March 2nd. And you wonder why I spend quality time reading cookbooks on the treadmill.
We headed off to Rouses last night for a major shopping binge and will cook all day today in preparation for an almost-final photo shoot tomorrow for the premiere edition of Louisiana Kitchen. It's looking fantastic! We're well on our way to our goal of 1,000 paid subscribers by launch—help us reach the goal: subscription information is here.

Why fake it? Why bother? They usually figure it out, anyway: Fat free half-and-half, pseudo "butter," tofu or seitan crumbles, soy pasta. And on and on - and other things, too.
Mardi Gras was just that: One big, fat ass Tuesday that lasted a week. I snarfed down enough varieties of king cake to call it a contest, drowned myself in all manner of gumbos, conducted a study of assorted jambalayas, ate enough fried chicken to start clucking, and drank enough wine to earn the name Bacchus (or whoever his female counterpart is/was). By Mardi Gras Day I was so sick of it all and so grossed out I spent the day happily working.
