Mardi Gras is Over, Lent is Here
Mardi Gras is Over, Lent Is Here
Lent is here. Fat Tuesday is history now. But I want to show this photo of another famous New Orleans restaurant chef. The bearded man in the photo above is Paul Prudomme who is the owner and head chef of The Commanders Palace Restaurant in the garden district of New Orleans. Jack and I ate there in 1982 and still remember what a special treat it was.
We also remember the New Orleans food festival for the fourth of July in 1982 where famous New Orleans chefs prepared under tents food for large crowds of hungry folks. This is where the above photo was taken. Paul Prudomme and his restaurant crew fixed the most delicious stuffed crepes. Yum, yum! We loved them.
