Prudhomme Love

I was terribly saddened to learn of the passing of Chef Paul Prudhomme last week.  It's a well known fact around here that I have a deep love for him. My family and I were fortunate enough to meet the gentle, welcoming chef on a trip to New Orleans.  He was incredibly personable and his love for food and New Orleans shone through.  It was a rare, true treat.

 I enjoyed one of the best meals of my life, one more than one occasion, at K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen.  It was an experience, not just a meal. 


There's not a recipe from Chef Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Kitchen that isn't spectacular..... although, if I confess I have more than this cookbook and they're all terrific.

The only way I ever make salmon is with his seasoning.
Finally, his Chocolate Mocha Cake is utterly divine....and I don't even like chocolate cake. You really must try it.


He was an incredible chef, a quiet gentleman, and an ambassador of New Orleans that will be greatly missed.  May his memory be eternal.
