Editor’s Note

Everyone fortunate enough to grow up in New Orleans understands that childhood here is a little different than anywhere else. Jazz Fest is an acceptable reason for skipping school. Snowball fights happen in the summer and leave your clothes stained with syrup. I could make both a strong pot of coffee and a strong mimosa […]

Gone Pecan

It’s impossible these days to keep track of what is and isn’t good for you, but right now, let’s celebrate –– because pecans are on the “good list.” Chock-full of protein, vitamins, antioxidants and heart-healthy fats, pecans can help lower your cholesterol and control your weight.

An Artist’s Quarters

If the well-worn walls of artist George Dureau’s three-story French Quarter home could talk, they would tell a story that spans well over a century. But it is the current resident who is apt to generate the most interest. Someone with a lesser vision might have quickly painted the unfinished, cracked gray walls, but no […]

Trash into Treasures

Pride of place is one of the reasons they like wearing Jazz Fest T-shirts and fleur-de-lis jewelry, particularly when they travel. It’s why they enjoy showing off shotgun houses and centuries-old buildings to guests from out of town. And it’s […]

Something Old, Something New

A generation ago, when my in-laws were searching for antiques for their Uptown home, they began their antiquing adventure the New Orleans way: lunch at Galatoire’s followed by a shop-to-shop trek along Royal Street. Each visit included long conversations with the merchants, a walk-through of the stores and note-taking. A piece of jewelry or furniture […]

It’s officially spring — the perfect time of year to enjoy alfresco dining. Pack a picnic basket for two, and head to the park, or create your own backyard bistro where friends can gather for a leisurely lunch.
