just gonna say if this dessert walked by me on the street, i’d definitely do a head turn (*not that we condone cat calling or street harassment of any kind!!)

charred bread with fresh ricotta and cherry salsa
pernil asado con mojo
ultra creamy mashed potatoes
carrot and beet slaw with pistachios and golden raisins
vanilla bean panna cotta with winter citrus and bacon fat ginger snap crumble
half moon icebox sesame cookies

Greek Revival double gallery home in the Garden District. In 1825, the land upriver of Felicity Street became part of Jefferson Parish. This included the Livaudais plantation. The population of New Orleans tripled from 1800 to 1830, and former plantations both downriver (Marigny, Bywater) and upriver, such as Livaudais, were subdivided and developed. In 1833, Faubourg Livadais as well as the two faubourgs immediately downriver, Lafayette and des Religieuses, were chartered by the state as the City of Lafayette, Parish of Jefferson. From a nola.com article by geographer, architecture professor and New Orleans historian, Richard Campanella: "In between Lafayette's front and rear precincts lay a swath of prime real estate -- convenient to the streetcar line, far enough from the riverfront to evade its hubbub, and equally distant from (and higher than) the flood-prone backswamp. It was here, between Magazine and Nayades (St. Charles) that affluent Anglo-Americans began erecting large townhouses on spacious lots ideal for ornamental horticulture. People nicknamed the area 'the garden district,' and the name stuck." In 1852, Lafayette was annexed into New Orleans. (Source: ). #neworleans#architecture#gardendistrict
