Amen to the Muff at Central Grocery, it's the best I have ever eaten. I think the secret is in the Olive Salad and the Round Bread.

We were there a year or two before Katrina and of course did the duMonde thing. It was awesome! also, take seriously the tip of Central Grocer! The Muffaletta was a high point of our trip. Also recommend Acme Oysters for some outstanding Oysters and great ambiance.

Have a great trip! We want to go back so badly. Even with the street scammers. Actually had someone pull the "Nice shoes" scam. Fortunately I was prepared for this, and a coach driver going passed yelled at the guy to leave us alone. LOL We had our young son with us on that trip so we were limited on what we could do. He did get an education there! Next time will be sans kids and lots of Jazz clubs!

Yat! I stayed at the Royal Sonesta for a week while in training in NOLA, so beignets and coffee every morning at CDM was my daily routine.....lunch at the Brass Monkey (cheap!), and then to Ralph and Kacoos for their oysters Rockefeller, and bread pudding with bourbon sauce for dessert.....Too many wonderful memories of meals there, along with all the fine people I met while wandering the streets after training....hello to the guys at ACME! Shuck me a dozen and pop me a Turbo Dog!

This is the recipe for the beignets that we traditionally have at the annual motorcycle campout. Those that arrive early enough to set up the camp (for 150+ people) get these as a reward. Your quantities may vary.

1-1/2 c warm water
1 Tbsp dry yeast
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 c undiluted canned evaporated milk
7 c flour
1/4 c vegetable shortening or butter
Confectioner's sugar

Put the warm water into a large bowl, then sprinkle in the dry yeast and
stir until thoroughly dissolved. Add the sugar, salt, eggs and evaporated
milk. Gradually stir in 4 cups of the flour and beat with a wooden spoon
until smooth and thoroughly blended. Beat in the shortening, then add
the remaining flour, about 1/3 cup at a time, beating it in with a spoon
until it becomes too stiff to stir, then working in the rest with your
fingers.

Or, if you have a Kitchenaid or satisfactory substitute, combine dry
ingredients, add wet ingredients plus melted butter or shortening,
beat till smooth.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least overnight.
The dough will keep in the fridge for at least a week, if you beat it
down occasionally.

It isn't necessary to put it in a hot saddlebag and take it out for
a six-hour ride in the sun so the dough rises like an alien monster
and attacks the rest of the implements and has to be peeled off
and beaten back when you hit camp, but it does get an interesting
winey flavor if you do.

Roll the dough out on a floured board to a thickness of 1/8".
Cut it into rectangles with a sharp knife. Fry in 360 degree oil,
turning once or twice, until golden brown. Drain, sprinkle HEAVILY
with confectioner's sugar, and serve hot. Or toss into a large paper
bag with confectioner's sugar, shake, and serve.
