Red Beans and rice is a southern tradition, especially in the city of New Orleans, and Louisiana. This hearty and inexpensive meal has been the traditional Monday feast for generations and continues to be an integral part of the New Orleans food culture. From family kitchens to the highest end restaurants, you can find red beans and rice served all across the city, year round. It is said that New Orleanian Louis Armstrong’s favorite food was red beans and rice. The musician would sign letters, “Red Beans and Ricely Yours, Louis Armstrong”.
