A taste of New Orleans

Leave a comment

Bob and I were lucky enough to be invited for the third time this summer to Greenville Tech Cullinary meal.   This time it was a New Orleans Buffet.   I had to look up what some of the items were before I went so I could fully appreciate what I was eating.   As always the presentation was impressive as was the food.    Here is the menu.
