The Internet is abuzz today with many blogs posting about their remembrances of the tragic events that unfolded a year ago today, and with their messages of support for the City of New Orleans and the Mississippi gulf region.
For the past several years, Rachel and I have been visiting the City of New Orleans, because we love the food and have such a strong emotional attachment to the city. We visited the city in 2003, we had a a trip in 2005 (just 2 months prior to Katrina devastating the city) and most recently a trip in April of 2006.
I think that while it is extremely important that we remember those lost to Katrina and the devastating effect it has has on the city of New Orleans, that we also rejoice in that New Orleans is rebuilding, and that New Orleans is still a great place to visit in terms of gastrotourism and that the food is still fantastic, and that you really should all be going down and spending your vacations and money there to help bring the city back.
To whet your appetite in the hopes of getting you down there, here is the list of Off The Broiler threads and Podcasts celebrating the City of New Orleans that we’ve posted over the last six months:
