A very rare thing to see: the tombstone of a Yankee officer, buried in a famous city along the Mississippi River in the heart of the Deep South. Two Confederate soldiers were buried close by... but even closer lays his wife (a native, from what I could gather), her sister, and their children and the generations who followed.

My grandfather is the infant on his mother's lap... His grandfather came over from France in the 1820's, as they were in need of French-speaking doctors.
I have sold literally thousands of plates of this dish... and you will not find a more perfect dish to represent New Orleans: pan fried drum with candied pecans and meuniere sauce.
That's right, kids... the heart of New Orleans cuisine is Creole (French-American) - NOT Cajun!
