When We Gonna Eat?

Food is always on the minds of New Orleanians. Food is our community.

I just marked my 1st anniversary of writing a food column and creating this food & travel blog. It is virtually impossible to eat at every restaurant in this town and then write about it. But ... lucky for you, there are numerous good food blogs written by an eclectic group of New Orleanians.

Here's a list, in alphabetical order, of my favorite New Orleans food blogs. If you read Native Palate and these regularly, you, my friends, will be in the know about all things foodie in town!

Bon appetit, y'all!

p.s. If you know of other locally written food blogs, drop me a line.

Happy New Year!

I had a great and busy holiday season. I spent Thanksgiving in San Francisco with good friends. Christmas and New Year's were a whirlwind of celebratory gatherings with family and friends. The Saints made it to the play-offs but ended the season sooner than we had all hoped. But what a fun season! Finally back in to the post-holiday shuffle at work. And here it is ... almost February ... with the Carnival season -- and King Cakes -- in full swing. Where does the time go?

I have lots to write about. So check back in a week or so - I will be back to sharing my dining experiences with you soon. Here's to more wonderful dining and travel experiences in 2011!
