well I had used Anson Mills previously and although they took longer to cook,I found that they creamier and the texture was more what I have had.. carolina plantation grits were good if you have't have Anson... my opionion only- any suggestions? I need more

Firefly v. Julian Serrano

I was there last Sunday night- I thought it was not only a beautiful restaurant but the food was delicious. I had the lamb chop,with sauteed spinach that had raisins and pine nite and the mushroom rissotto which was fantastic! To drink I ordered the white sangira which was good but next time will get the red... Albert- ( the manager) I believe that was his name- he wears black glasses-wonderful and brought me a delicious desert- some kind of light fried donut with small cop of warn chocolate that had a red chili in it.. delicious! I really enjoyed my dinner- I saw several groups with pitchers of sangria as well as couples and then me! I hope your enjoy it- the risotto was my favorite

i just got back from NOLA, and damn the food rocks. now, how can i try to prepare it myself? [Moved from New Orleans]

try a really good local cookbook.. Marcelle Bievenue's " Whose Your Mama, are you Catholic and can you make a roux?".. not only a good cookbook- but great stories told by Marcelle.. who- by the way- worked with Emerill and Emerill often mentions her .
