Les Bon Temps

I'm in New Orleans this week with fellow food editors Kathy Downie and Julie Grimes for the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) conference. Which is being held concurrently, as luck would have it, with a pirate convention. PyrateCon 2008. Honestly. Saw a pirate eating breakfast at Luke this morning. I'm not clear on the business agenda for their conference, but judging by the scene in the quarter last night, the grog flows freely at the meetings.

Stay tuned for a full report next week on New Orleans cuisine and all things IACP.
