7 Mouthwatering Foods Only New Orleanian Moms Know How to Cook

Part of what makes our food so special is the history behind it. Families passing their recipes down from generation to generation have become a tradition for not only New Orleans, but Louisiana in general. Chances are, you have several memories from your childhood centered in the kitchen, learning how to cook from your mom, and you hold your family recipes near and dear to your heart. And everybody knows, no one makes anything better than your mama, right?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
