Creole Succotash from 'Treme'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 2 comments

The succotash I grew up eating was a simple side dish of lima beans, corn, onion, black pepper, and a big hunk of butter. But despite my familiarity with the basic version, I am open to different interpretations of the dish (as long as it still contains butter, corn, and limas, of course). This creole succotash from the Treme cookbook is kind of like a tricked out version of the classic. In addition to the requisite vegetables, you'll find okra, celery, bell pepper, shrimp, and two kinds of pork. More

Doberge Cake

Serious Eats Alexandra Penfold Post a comment

New Orleans may be best known around these parts for beignets and King Cake, but when it comes time to celebrate your birthday in the Big Easy, it's the Doberge Cake (that's pronounced DOUGH-bash for the folks at home), a layered cake with lemon and chocolate that steals the show. More

Classic New Orleans Muffuletta Sandwich

Serious Eats J. Kenji López-Alt 9 comments

The classic New Orleans sandwich combines a homemade olive salad with layers of thin-sliced Italian cold cuts. The secret is to let it rest before eating so the olive juices get absorbed into the bread. More

For folks outside of New Orleans, the square, fried fritters which are covered (perhaps buried) in powdered sugar are probably most closely associated with the French Quarter's famed Cafe Du Monde, a coffee shop established back in 1862. More

Dinner Tonight: Andouille Po' Boy 'Creolaise'

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 9 comments

I don't need any convincing about the glory of the po' boy. It's just that when I think of the New Orleans sandwich, my mind immediately imagines fried oysters or luscious roast beef—never bad things to think about. That was until I was flipping through Crescent City Cooking by Susan Spicer. She writes, you shouldn't "overlook a spicy sausage filling." More

Cook the Book: Fried Chicken with New Orleans Confetti

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 4 comments

Austin Leslie is known in New Orleans as the "Godfather of Fried Chicken." He died tragically in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, but his legacy lives on through his signature dish, Fried Chicken with New Orleans Confetti. Adapted from The Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook, it's easy to see why Austin's chicken is the gold standard of New Orleans chicken. It includes the unlikely addition of evaporated milk, which adds a bit of sweetness and an incredible crunch once fried. More

Turducken Po' Boys

Not sure what to do with that leftover turducken? Po'boy-ify it. That's what chef Steve McHugh of Luke Restaurant in New Orleans does. More

Classic Muffaletta Sandwich

Serious Eats Blake Royer 8 comments

I like to think of the muffaletta as a distant relative of the Italian sub. They both layer on the various meats and cheese—ham, capicola, salami, mortadella, provolone—and rely on something piquant and lively to stand up to all that meat, whether that's hot peppers in an Italian or the famed olive spread of the muffaletta. More

Dinner Tonight: The Best Oyster Po' Boy Outside of New Orleans

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 8 comments

It's such a simple sandwich, yet when you sit down with one of these, it's hard to imagine anything tasting better. The oysters are tossed in a flour and cornmeal mixture, then fried for just under a minute so the crust is crackly and golden brown, yet the oysters are still gushing with juice. The bread is important. It needs to be soft, but still have a nice crackly texture. Then it's just iceberg lettuce and mayonnaise. More

Cook the Book: St. Joseph's Fig Cookies

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

In honor of St. Joseph's Day, a feast day for the patron saint of cabinetmakers, engineers, Canada, and confectioners (which is where the sweets come in), try this recipe for St. Joseph's fig cookies. They're like a better, homemade version of Fig Newtons. The figginess is much less cloying and sticky and gets combined with a nice mix of sherry, orange, lemon, raisins, and walnuts. More

In this recipe for Trout Amandine, trout fillets are dredged in flour, pan fried in browned butter, and finished with parsley, lemon juice, and toasted almonds. More

Sazerac Cocktail

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 6 comments

1830s. The Sazerac holds a special place in John Besh's heart since the hotel is now home to his restaurant, Domenica. Many Sazerac recipes call for absinthe, but Besh prefers to use Herbsaint, an anise-flavored liqueur invented in New Orleans. More

Cook the Book: Chicken and Smoked Sausage Gumbo

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 8 comments

My New Orleans by John Besh includes no fewer than five recipes for gumbo, which isn't really all that shocking considering gumbo is the epitome of Louisiana cooking. This Chicken and Smoked Sausage Gumbo starts with a roux made up of equal parts fat and flour that gets slowly cooked until the mix changes from a light tan to a deep, rich brown. More

Cook the Book: Beignets

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 3 comments

When I first visited New Orleans several years ago, I was a strict vegetarian. That meant I missed out on almost all the city's iconic culinary offerings—gumbo, po'boys, even red beans and rice. But not beignets. Light, sweet, and incredibly messy from the heavy dusting of powdered sugar they were finished with, they were entirely memorable. With the help of John Besh's beignet recipe, I stroll down memory lane. More
