Blues without the Band
(Blues san la band)


It can be said the folks in Nola have a love affair with the blues. Childhood memories of our Dad coming home with a cooler full of those blue crabs, ready to go into the pot of boiling water Mom had on the stove filled with the magic ingredients of the crab boil seasoning packet, left us in anticipation of the mouthwatering gastronomic experience that was about to unfold.

We would gather out back at the picnic table covered with newspapers, picking crabs and drinking beer until our bellies were full and our soul and spirits replenished. So it’s easy to see why the blue crab is the other little sea creature that folks in NOLA can’t live without.
