So many look alike, but, the difference is inside for this one..the rice won me over! They have a wide variety of flavors.something for everyone. I hope when I finally order it, it lives up to my expectations.

Actually I was able to find the andouille locally.
The alligator and crawfish had to be ordered from Louisiana. I could have gotten boudin from the same place. I do love it.
In this particular case we cut the sausage into small pieces and served it on toothpicks with creole mustard and sweet hot mustard as an appetizer. Boudin would not work so well for that.
The dinner made a big hit. It is funny, out of 12 people, everybody loved something. One lady had a whole plate full of crawfish, there were two who really loved the oysters (with Tabasco), one person adored the okra and sweet potato fries, and so around the table.
And my Cafe Brulot always makes a great show. For those who don't know, I put sugar, cinnamon sticks, cloves, orange and lemon peel in the bowl, then pour in brandy and curacao. I turn out all the lights, flame the pot and then use a ladle to pick up flaming liquor and pour it back in the pot. Done right the flame climbs up the trail pouring down and makes a spectacular show. Then strong hot coffee is poured in to quench the flames.
We had a great time. This morning we get to clean up ... ;o)
Forget baked Alaska I want my coffee served this way on the cruise. Is it easy to do? Any particular alcohol content you need for it to flame? Might need to try it =)
Actually it is not hard to do. There are special sets to do it with, a decorated deep bowl and a ladle with a strainer on it. I am not sure where you would get one today. But any deep bowl such as a Revere bowl in silver plate would do, and you could just ladle carefully to be sure you don't pick up the spices or peels in the ladle. It is wise to practice a few times before you perform in public!
