Famous New Orleans Dishes

Learn how to cook traditional New Orleans dishes and the history behind them 

What unites everyone in New Orleans is the city’s love affair with its traditional fare. It’s a romance conducted over white-linen tablecloths graced by crawfish etouffe, in a bistro courtyard with a bowl of gumbo or requited on a picnic bench with a po-boy sandwich stuffed with fried oysters. Creole, Cajun, the list could go on forever.
