Cafe du Monde
Back from the trip to New Orleans. What a great time! If you have never been, you must go - it is so much more than Bourbon street.
The very first stop we made was, of course, Cafe du Monde for warm beignets with piles of powdered sugar and cafe au lait. For those that have never had a beignet, they are like a french donut. A cross between a cake and yeast donut. Dense, moist and a bit chewy, but with pockets of air in them, and no hole.
