“Laissez les bon temps roulez” is going down in NOLA for Fat Tuesday! The carnival of Mardi Gras is a hedonistic celebration of merrymaking before the start of a 40-day cleansing fast. Pre-Christian, this is the time of year that ushers in a new season, Spring. This feast marks the last hurrah of Winter and is another opportunity to feed the insatiable libido. The Cajun and Creole people of New Orleans, Louisiana are revered for throwing the best Mardi Gras party in the United States and are famous for their cuisine. It is an infusion of French, African, Caribbean, and Spanish influences that make for the tantalizing flavors of this region. Perfect for a seduction supper. The key spice that ignites an aphrodisiac fire in this sensational cuisine is cayenne pepper. It gets the heart pumping, pores sweating and blood flowing towards the genitals. Sounds like a party to me. Let the good times roll!
