People often why New Orleans food tastes so good. (It really, really does.) Apart from the fact that we do not in any way shy away from tasty tasty fat, we also gleefully apply salt and spice. In fact, we have several locally made brands of seasoning salt! The best of these, of course, is Tony Chachere's (pronounced like SATCH-er-ies, as enunciated in their ridiculous ad campaigns). Any Nola home cook worth their salt (ha ha) has a canister of Tony's next to the stove. And with good reason - it's great on everything!
|Of note: Slap ya Mama advertising was recently banned by the NFL over "domestic violence concerns." Because what we really need to worry about is season salt.|
