Beignets = Not Overrated

Beignets are lovely.

That’s my stance, and I’m sticking to it.

I think the tendency for New Orleans residents is to reject “touristy” spots, and that’s fine to a point.  When your opinion becomes invalidated due to overwhelming evidence to the contrary, I don’t know that trying to cling to the notion of “touristy = bad” is going to do anyone a whole heck of a lot of good.

Though on second thought, if it keeps the crowds/lines a bit lighter, I’m for it. (More for me!)

Here are two videos I’ve shot/produced on Cafe du Monde.  The first is basically a (deserved) love letter to the restaurant.  The second one (below) is a simple how-to on doing beignets at home.  I shall endeavor to try this with the spousal unit soon.
