Re:new orleans area foodies?
anita and foodbme, glad to help. Just curious, foodbme, are you able to listen to the radio show?
anita - I thought of a couple other things - the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in the Riverwalk has Saturday programs with visiting chefs, lectures, demonstrations, etc. This Sat., Feb 5th there's a workshop on making St. Joseph's Day altar cookies. Usually the Friday Lagniappe section, or Saturday's supplemental will list these events, or you can go to their website at http//southernfood.org.
The Garden District Book Store (2727 Prytania St) has a pot luck-dinner, cookbook club, with discussions and sometimes hosts visiting authors/chefs, sounds interesting.
