I’ve lived in New York City and San Francisco. I’ve eaten in Paris (and Lyon where people in Paris go when they want good food.)

To me, none of these places can hold a candle to New Orleans.

Here’s just one example of New Orleans master chefs: Willie Mae Seaton of Willie Mae’s Scotch House.

The Southern Foodways Alliance is working to put Willie Mae’s Scotch House back in operation. Visit their web site to see how you can help.
