When not writing my fictional series, The Adventure of Tiffany & Mrs Mac, I’m a travel writer with most of my stories published by Nine (that’s Nine Publishing – the TV channel – which happened to buy Fairfax’s stable of newspapers a few years ago).
One destination I’d go back to in a heartbeat is New Orleans. There’s something about this city on the bend of the Mississippi River, that just does it for me; it’s the music, the fun (it’s party central most nights of the week in Bourbon Street), and the food. They have some fantastic fare down there in Louisiana. One things for sure, I’d rather not go back in summer. When I was there in June 2022 it was hot – it sizzled at 38 degrees just about every day, and the blistering summer months were yet to come. I think I’d go back in their “fall”, our spring.
Here’s a taste of some of the famous dishes – it’s a story that was published in 2023.
