Creole Pralines

Creole Pralines by Amos Miller

Better than a cookie (sorry bakers, but this is a Creole group) and with the true taste of New Orleans, Creole Pralines are one of the signature treats in the Big Easy! It is time to play 'soft ball', and we're not talking the sport - we're talking Creole candy. When the recipe calls for your concoction on the stove to reach the…

File Gumbo / Chez Helene

File Gumbo / Chez Helene by Amos Miller

The late Chef Austin Leslie left a brilliant legacy of Creole dishes and he helped form my approach to the cuisine of NOLA. I follow no other recipe than the one he left me. When a dish is perfect, why stray? Fresh ingredients will tell the tale. Now, as my mentor Paula Wolfert admonishes: "Relax and follow the recipe"!

Uncle Sidney's Red Beans

Uncle Sidney's Red Beans by Amos Miller

There are two ways to go here: smoked meats (sausage, rib tips, neck bones, ham, country bacon), OR pickled meat. Either way, you'll obtain a rich flavor profile and a satisfying meal. One, warm, soft, and smokey; one tangy, slightly sharp, sort of barbeque-y, but it's always PORK and beans in the end.. My culinary mentor, whom I…

SHRIMP AND CRABMEAT ETOUFFEE by Cecelia Heer

Several weeks ago, after enjoying a great etouffee at a cooking demonstration and tasting from a local top-rated chef, I was inspired to make my own version the following day. Since Mardi Gras was coming up the following week, and since I am a seafood lover, I wanted to make a version with seafood, or more likely shellfish. So, I…
