GoNOLA Recipes at Home: Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

Food Recipes

Brussels sprouts are kind of like kale: hearty, wintry, and totally having a moment. These trendy veggies may have made it on to your Thanksgiving table in roasted form, but they’re surprisingly crisp and flavorful when served raw. The Crescent City Farmers Market agrees: their shaved Brussels sprouts salad plays on the natural brightness of the sprouts with the addition …

GoNOLA Recipes at Home: Shrimp and Corn Maque Choux

Food Recipes

The flavors of fresh corn might pigeonhole maque choux as a summertime dish, but take a closer look at its origins and you’ll see why it’s just as appropriate in autumn.

GoNOLA Recipes at Home: Bad Bart’s Black Jambalaya

Food Recipes

Bad Bart’s Black Jambalaya delivers on meaty flavors. You won’t find seafood here: smoked sausage, roasted chicken thighs, and braised pork are a trinity in and of themselves, although the classic trio of celery, peppers, and onions makes an appearance, too. Just the tiniest teaspoon of cayenne pepper heats this jambalaya right up – so much so that it was …
