What to Eat at the New Orleans Jazz Fest

At the annual New Orleans Jazz Festival, which kicks off this weekend, food doesn’t play second fiddle. In fact, the Fest could be double-billed as a full-fledged food festival.

There are a few exceptions, thankfully, and one of them is cookies from Tate’s Bake Shop. Ever since we were […]

Fishing at the Farmers’ Market

At the farmers’ market, I usually beeline for the fresh produce — this summer, juicy peaches and heirloom tomatoes in all colors of the rainbow have captured my attention.
