Five years ago, Hurricane Katrina devastated the gulf coast (and the city of New Orleans.) The city is still coming back and is unarguably, the best food city in the US. If you can, go to New Orleans which still needs your support. While you’re planning your trip (and to whet your appetite), try this recipe for Garlic Bread from the legendary Commander’s Palace.
1 loaf French bread
8 tbsp. (1 stick) unsalted butter
2 cloves garlic, mashed to a puree
1/4 c. finely chopped fresh dill
1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Slice bread lengthwise. Melt butter in a small skillet, add garlic and heat gently for 2 minutes.
Brush the melted butter generously on the cut sides of the bread halves. Sprinkle with dill and cheese.
