365 Project Day 268: On New Orleans' Food Influences: French

Yes, we've gotten around to talking about the French influence on New Orleans food.  And I'll sum it up for you in one word: butter.  We embrace France's butter obsession wholeheartedly - much to the chagrin of vegans, as well as those who try to eat heart-healthy, those who watch their waistlines, and so on, and so on.

Luckily, another more vegan friendly French Tradition also sunk in bone-deep: bread.  Literally French for bakery, La Boulangerie on Magazine Street is in fact both a boulangerie and pastisserie - though from what I can tell only their traditional breads are vegan.  No matter; the bread will do just fine.
