Miss Harriet is my new super hero. She was full of wonderful tidbits of information about New Orleans and great tips for us semi knowledgeable cooks. She had the best, yum, corn and crab bisque. Who knew, other than Miss Harriet, how well the base and roux would make it. It was so good that seconds called my name. Her Chicken Etouffee was delicious and I wanted seconds but another course was coming. Pralines, OMG. Can’t wait to make these and Miss Harriet, I will make them my own.

We went on the 7 PM tour of the city. Our tour guide was absolutely fabulous. He was fun, entertaining, and very informative. Although we didn’t see any ghosts, it was creepy. We learned a lot of interesting history with a little folk lore mixed in. We had a great tour and would highly recommend!
