CHRISTMASES’ MIDNIGHTS By Errol Laborde

What I remember most about going to Christmas midnight

mass as a kid was the men standing outside the church until the last moment before the mass began. I didn’t know it at the time, but that was a French thing. The people of that ancestry in Avoyelles Parish, located in the center of the state, are generally not Cajun, their forebearers came directly from France rather than Nova Scotia, but they certainly live in the Cajun culture including the custom of men staying in the church yard until the bells rang. Meanwhile, the women and children sat piously in the pews. (It was at Christmas midnight mass as a kid that I first heard a choir sing what I thought was, “Hark the Errol angels sing” and was pleased by the surprises that life was offering.) In New Orleans there had been a tradition of the Réveillon, a bountiful meal served upon returning home from midnight mass. There were no such traditions in the country. There were times when we drove to the country on Christmas morning instead of the day before. As prevalent as the Catholic culture is in Louisiana so too is the Baptist religion. I remember in particular the many variations of black congregation Baptist churches and related Christians sects each with their own small wooden churches along the old highways. For many denominations the favored Christmas dinner fare was roast pig. The people of central Louisiana are pork eaters. They are masters of the boucherie, for which a whole hog is cooked outdoors and where few parts of the pig are left uncooked in preparation of such side items as boudin and cracklings. The roast pig, and perhaps a turkey, would be accompanied by rice and gravy (a seriously overlooked delicacy in modern cooking) plus maybe potato salad or sweet potatoes. There would be cakes for dessert and a pie made with native pecans. At the town of New Roads we are reminded that though Christmas is over, the season continues. A tented market along the highway boasts of fireworks for sale. I always stopped there to survey the bottle rockets, Roman candles (which are not as potent as they used to) and the best from the Black Cat company. With New Year’s Eve only a few days away I made some purchases. (Note: Since shooting fireworks is illegal in the city my stash was bought strictly for theological purposes.) Curiously, the fireworks market is operated as a fundraiser for a nearby Christian church. As the new year begins there will once more be a midnight ritual as skyrockets bring flashes of radiance to the winter sky. And maybe somewhere the angels still sing.

Preventative Cures Overcoming Louisiana’s leading health issues By Fritz Esker

In an era where so much information is at

our fingertips, it can sometimes be hard to know how to direct our mental energy. What should Louisianians be most concerned about according to statistics? The numbers point to heart disease, cancer and accidents.

1

Heart Disease The leading cause of death in Louisiana is heart disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control (cdc.gov). In 2017 (the most recent numbers available), 11,260 Louisianians died of heart disease, putting Louisiana at fifth in the nation.

2

Cancer According to the CDC, cancer is the second most common cause of death in Louisiana. In 2017, the Pelican State saw 9,513 cancer deaths, sealing its rank at No. 5 nationwide. Why is cancer so prevalent here?

3

The CDC’s three key risk factors for heart disease are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking. Check your cholesterol at least once every five years. Measure your blood pressure at least every two years even if you have no history of high numbers. You can lower your blood pressure through exercise, less sodium in your diet and medication.

Smoking is an obvious answer. The Truth Initiative (truthinitiative.org) said 22.8 percent of adult Louisianians smoked in 2016 (the most recent numbers available). The national average is 17.1 percent. Those aren’t good numbers, especially when you look at the American Cancer Society’s (cancer.org) numbers. Lung and bronchus cancers lead the pack in both estimated new cases (3,810) and estimated deaths (2,390) for 2019 in Louisiana. It’s been said over and over again, but apparently it still needs to be said — don’t smoke.

Accidents The CDC listed accidents as Louisiana’s third leading cause of death, 14th nationwide (2,780 people total). Accidents can cover a variety of things, from falls in the home to fatal workplace mishaps. But car accidents account for a big chunk of those numbers. In 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated that 735 people died in Louisiana vehicular accidents that year. Two hundred and twenty-five of those deaths were people who did not wear seatbelts. Two hundred and twenty-seven involved intoxicated drivers. Speeding was a factor in 173. So, while there’s no magic pill to make you safe on the roads, it’s important to buckle up and avoid alcohol when driving. And be patient — getting to your destination a few minutes early because you drove fast is not worth risking your life. LouisianaLife.com

LOUISIANA MADE

Pitcher Perfect Hammond’s family-owned Gnarly Barley Brewing Co., continues to garner national recognition and lots of love from locals By Jeffrey Roedel photos by romero & romero

If you’re speeding or texting you’ll

probably miss it, but tucked away in a beige block of industrial-looking storehouses off a small side road in Hammond, stands what the Brewers Association has twice named one of the 50 fastest-growing craft breweries in the country. Pumping out 13,000 barrels to locations across south Louisiana in 2018, Gnarly Barley is a family-owned brewing company that for five years has given Louisianans more reasons to drink local, with its bright Catahoula Common and creamy Korova Milk Porter, among other seasonal varieties and curious one-offs as well as the recent best-selling Jucifer IPA. But numbers alone don’t make a brand, the founding husband-and-wife team know, and a first glance into the colorful open-air tap room at Gnarly Barley reveals why their beer is more than meets the rye. A lemon yellow lightning bolt blazes on the wall beyond a long bar top lined with a collage of skateboard decks like armor. Opposite is a gift shop stuffed with patches and bags, soap, sunglasses and beach towels, caps and tees. One says “Doin’ it our way in Hammond, LA.” The whole vibe is less Louisiana brew house and more Southern California surfer’s garage, drawing on co-founder Zac Caramonta’s history as a skateboarder — he’s built ramps and half-pipes wherever he’s lived — and his love for the rock music from a more psychedelic age. Most surprisingly to the Caramontas, conservative Hammond has embraced them from the start. Through a small waiting area with a kitchen table in the middle, his wife Cari sits in her office going over billing details and orders with an assistant. Cari is in her second trimester, their dryer at home is on the fritz, and she really could use a shrimp poor boy right about now.

How did you settle on the name and were there other contenders for the brand name initially? Zac came up with the name because he’s a skateboarder, and it just has a ring to it that’s worked out perfectly.

As their family is growing, so is their brewery. “As slow as we are trying to be, it’s still fast,” Cari says, acknowledging their rank among the 50 fastest growing microbreweries in the U.S. “I don’t want to ever get over our heads. We’re in it for quality and a great product. It’s not all about dollars.” Zac and Cari work well together. “I wear a lot of hats, but we rarely fight about Gnarly — it’s more divide and conquer,” Cari says. The matter-of-fact tone in which the spouses address each other impacts the rest of their team. “We are very real with each other, no filter,” Zac says. “Having two people in these integral roles who love each other makes us more efficient, and that extends to the employees. We can be blunt. It’s OK. We tell it like it is and keep rolling.” As Zac sees beer drinkers trending toward more craft brews and unique regional offerings, he says large regional beers will be challenged, while there isn’t a bubble for micro breweries but the ceiling for production is indeed lowering. Based on market demands and their own capabilities, Zac envisions growing Gnarly Barley steadily to about 20,000 barrels a year and capping off production there. For the Hammond native, his motivation isn’t simply to sell a bunch of beer. “You have to have a great culture and the quality, and you have to enjoy the craft of it all,” he says. “We have a good platform for this community and know we can take care of our existing employees. To me, that’s everything.” n

Evangeline Revisited The New Orleans Museum of Art explores Longfellow’s ‘Acadia’ and the Louisiana landscape

“Lovely the moonlight was as it glanced and gleamed on the water, Gleamed on the columns of cypress and cedar sustaining the arches, Down through whose broken vaults it fell as through chinks in a ruin. Dreamlike, and indistinct, and strange were all things around them; And o’er their spirits there came a felling of wonder and sadness.” “Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

By John R. Kemp

L o n g f e ll o w ’ s e p i c 1 8 4 7 p o e m

“Evangeline” gave the mid-19th century world an imaginary and romantic vision of South Louisiana’s seemingly impenetrable swamps and bayous; Louisiana’s 19th century landscape artists gave sight to those visions. Like Longfellow’s exiled, star-crossed and forlorn Acadian lovers Evangeline and Gabriel, Louisiana’s dark, watery cypress forests lured generations of landscape painters who created work that rivaled many of the best known landscape painters in the United States and Europe.

14

Louisiana Life november/december 2019

Though cultural observers in other parts of the country have tended to overlook the historical importance of 19th century landscaping painting in Louisiana, the New Orleans Museum of Art, or NOMA, sets the record straight in the groundbreaking new show “Inventing Acadia: Painting and Place in Louisiana” that runs Nov. 16 to Jan. 26. “Inventing Acadia,” organized by NOMA’s Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Katie Pfohl, takes viewers on a journey through the unsettling yet poetic and romanticized beauty of Louisiana’s 19th century landscape

through the eyes and imaginations of its artists. Equally important, the exhibit places these Louisiana landscape paintings, for the first time, in a broader national and international context. It claims their rightful place in the history of American art. Pfohl and the narrative accompanying the show describe landscape painting in Louisiana during the 19th century as a “merger of artistic (above)“Back of Algiers,” by Richard Clague, c. 1870-73, Gift of Eugenia Uhlhorn in memory of her husband Major Benjamin Morgan Harrod, New Orleans Museum of Art


influences from across the globe.” Those artists then working here created and exported “a new vision for American landscape art” that envisioned South Louisiana’s “enigmatic natural scenery both as a paradise shrouded in the ‘glamour of romance’ and as a place profoundly marked by the history of colonialism and the forced migrations of slavery.” By the later half of the 1800s, this “enigmatic natural scenery” had become a dominant theme among local and expatriate artists who came to Louisiana from the Caribbean, Mexico, Europe and Northeastern states to explore the state’s mythical and mystical land and Evangeline’s Acadia. During those years, a new school of art emerged in Louisiana, the so-called “Bayou School,” influenced by the transcendentalism of the Hudson River School of art, especially the work of Thomas Cole, Frederic Edwin Church, Asher Durand, George Inness and the realism of the French Barbizon painters who dominated the art world in Louisiana in the latter half of the 1800s. Featured in the show are paintings by the most influential artists working in Louisiana from the 1830s to about 1900. The stellar line up includes, among others, Joseph Rusling Meeker, Alfred Boisseau, Théodore Rousseau, William Henry Buck, Marshall Smith, and Richard Clague, regarded as the father of the Bayou School. Those artists who came to Louisiana from Europe and northern states had to respond to an unfamiliar landscape. Instead of mountains and rocky seashores, they found in Louisiana a shifting landscape of deep cypress swamps enveloped in hot, humid air that created warm and misty sunlight that seemingly glowed at the tips of the their brushes. Pfohl, who holds a doctorate in art history from Harvard and joined NOMA’s staff in 2016, also traces changing artistic interpretations of landscape painting as Bayou School artists moved from the Civil War years to last decades of the century. Clague, for example, painted what he saw, such as in his painting “Back of Algiers,” which depicts shacks and poverty (top) “Trapper’s Cabin, Manchac,” By in a backwater neighborhood of Richard Clague, 1870, New Orleans.

landscape painting in Louisiana with the introduction of African-American, Mexican and Haitian paintings. According to Pfohl, this was the nation’s first exhibition featuring African-American artists. Apparently, landscape artists working in New Orleans during these years were highly regarded in Europe and often showed their work in major Paris salons side by side with renowned French painters such as JeanBaptiste-Camille Corot, Charles-François Daubigny and Théodore Rousseau. The last half of the 19th century is often described as a golden age of landscape painting in Louisiana and, indeed, the United States. Louisiana paintings, however, differed “in style and subject matter,” says Roger Ogden, a New Orleans art collector and founder of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Ogden and the museum loaned almost a dozen paintings to the exhibit. “Louisiana landscape painting of the 19th century,” says Ogden, “has its own identity, perhaps reflecting the humid quality of light in Louisiana.” Pfohl, however, doesn’t think of art and paintings in this show in comparative terms of historical movements. They are, she says, “part of an evolving conversation” about the ecology, art and history.

16

Louisiana Life november/december 2019

“These are beautiful paintings but at the same time they tell a complicated story,” she says. “In part, the show is about lands under threat, a show about paintings under threat, destroyed or lost. It’s important for the museum to tell that story.” In telling that story, Pfohl spent the last three years examining old exhibition catalogs, visiting private and museum collections in Louisiana, across the United States and in France. In the end, she selected approximately 60 paintings that best demonstrate the artistic influences and cultural connections between Louisiana, Europe, the Caribbean and Northeastern United States. A scholarly catalog published by Yale University Press accompanies the exhibition. Returning to Longfellow, “Inventing Acadia” captures the beauty and romance of Evangeline’s refuge in Louisiana, the new Acadia, as well as the Acadia of the imagination and the artist’s brush.

Keeping It Simple Artist Helen Bolin’s artful Baton Rouge bungalow By Lee Cutrone Photos by Sara Essex Bradley

When artist Helen Bolin purchased her

1931 Baton Rouge bungalow in 1996, it had no air conditioning and was in need of updates. What the cottage lacked in modern conveniences, however, it made up for in original charm and green space. “I always loved the Garden District area,” says Bolin, who grew up in a nearby neighborhood. “I waited until the perfect house came along.” Bolin has since renovated the house in three stages, which included adding central air, restoring the original fireplace and hardwood floors, enclosing a sleeping porch and most recently, gutting and remodeling the kitchen. A fourth renovation that will add a porch is also in the works. The goal throughout has remained constant: to stay true to the architecture of the house, while maximizing its 1,440 square-feet of space with simple lines and an open flow. “If you have a small space, the key is keeping everything very simple,” says Bolin, who worked as an interior decorator before turning to art fulltime. While preserving some architectural features was important to Bolin, she found that eliminating others, such as doors and transoms, helped open the floorplan. To that same end, she kept the palette light, painting walls, trim and ceiling Benjamin Moore’s Ballet White; hung linen curtains that blend with the white of the walls from ceiling-height rods that draw the eye upward, and designed custom furniture ideally suited to the dimensions of the rooms. The kitchen, which measures 12 feet by 12 feet, posed the greatest challenge, but Bolin devised a minimalist, all-white (Top) Artist and Baton arrangement that allowed for Rouge native Helen Bolin everything she needed without in her home office.

By removing the hot water heater from the existing butler’s pantry and relocating it to the attic, she gained extra space, now outfitted with open shelving as well. Rather than tear out the Mexican tiles she added to the kitchen in a previous renovation, she painted them the same Ballet White as the rest of the room and used accents of turquoise against the neutral backdrop. Bolin’s visually-expanding, monochromatic simplicity is also designed to give the art importance. Works in the home include pieces by Louisiana artists Lisa di Stefano (a close friend) and George Marks, and Austin artist Meredith Purdue, as well as pieces by Bolin herself. Layerings of animal hides, which Bolin loves, and metallics, which she uses in many of her works, are part of the pared-down aesthetic, as are keeping things organized and in step with her needs. After taking a renovation break, she’s looking forward to her new back porch for indoor and outdoor living. “It’s evolved over the years,” she says. “I add as I go.” n (Facing page) In the living room, Bolin custom designed the upholstered pieces and hung linen drapes at ceiling height to visually expand the space.

T

here’s no denying that Louisiana is a beautiful state. From south Louisiana’s coast to up north with its towering pine trees, and the lakes, bayous, prairies and plains in between, it’s the Sportsman’s Paradise indeed — not to mention a photographer’s paradise. For years, we’ve had an ongoing photo contest in search of a sharable image reflecting some aspect of Louisiana life and culture to run in the front of the magazine. The response has always been enthusiastic, resulting in scores of intriguing images that capture the landscape we all love. We get so many in fact, it seemed like a no-brainer to expand the contest into a full-fledged feature, showcasing the best of the best reader photos. In the following pages, you’ll see the Pelican State in all of her glory, seen through the lens of Louisianians. This is your Louisiana life. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Digital hypertension management programs help Louisiana medical community combat high blood pressure, which could lower the state’s high instances of heart attacks and strokes

Under Pressure By Fritz Esker


H

ypertension, also known as high blood pressure, can result in potentially fatal problems like heart attacks and strokes. According to the Centers for Disease Control (cdc.gov), Louisiana ranked fifth in the country for deaths by heart disease and third for deaths by stroke in 2017 (the most recent available data). Hypertension is manageable, but it used to be a time-consuming process of trial and error. However, hospitals around the country are beginning to embrace digital hypertension management programs that can make it easier for patients to work with their doctors to manage hypertension. In the past, patients would see a doctor, get their blood pressure taken and then the doctor would prescribe medication. After the patient started taking medication, they would return to the doctor to get their blood pressure checked again and determine whether or not the medication was working. Often, the process would take several visits and many months before the proper medication dosage would be reached. In April 2018, “The Journal of General Internal Medicine” published a study conducted by Harvard Medical School that found patients who had “virtual” office visits with their doctors were able to control blood pressure just as well as patients who had in-person office visits. Both groups of patients showed improvements, but the patients in the virtual care group had fewer emergency room visits and hospitalizations overall. At the local level, Ochsner Health System has launched its Hypertension Digital Medicine Program. Patients in the new digital program take their blood pressure on a daily basis and submit the data via smart phone. Every week, they talk to a healthcare professional. A team consisting of a doctor, a nurse, a nutritionist, a personal trainer, and a pharmacist evaluate the data and provide input for the patient’s treatment plan. Adjustments can be made without the patient coming to the office. Plus, the digital adjustments are free. Patients do not have to go through the hassle of taking time off work, making the drive to the doctor’s office, sitting in a waiting room and paying the copay on their insurance. Digital hypertension management programs are not just more convenient; they also help patients live a healthier lifestyle. Dr. Zola N’Dandu, a cardiologist with Ochsner River Parishes, says the easy-to-use, interactive nature of the program helps keep patients compliant in their treatment regimen. The results have been great for doctors and patients. “We are able to get blood pressure controlled successfully within three months,” said Dr. N’Dandu. Dr. N’Dandu says virtual programs can combine the knowledge of several highly trained professionals into one digital visit. Patients used to have to consult with doctors, pharmacists, nutritionists, and personal trainers separately. Now, it can all be part of one package. Information is shared with the patient’s primary care physician as well. These programs can also help patients with diabetes and congestive heart failure by monitoring their daily weight and blood pressure. Dr. N’Dandu says the patient feedback has been excellent. “Most of the patients we’ve spoken to about the program have been very, very happy,” said Dr. N’Dandu.

Hypertension Hypertension happens when the long-term force of blood pushing against the artery walls is enough to cause health problems. People can have hypertension for years without any symptoms. Once you’re 18 years old, you should get a blood pressure reading from a doctor at least every two years. Once you turn 40, or if you have a family history of high blood pressure, you should get a reading every year. Age, family history, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, and too much salt in your diet are just some of the many risk factors.

State of Medicine

Louisiana offers a wealth of talented physicians, knowledgeable specialists, awarded hospitals, and passionate healthcare industry professionals. Patients seeking solutions to any number of health concerns can likely find specialized treatment without having to drive or fly out of state to receive care. Home to pioneer physicians whose groundbreaking work has paved the way for healthier, happier communities, Louisiana is also home to hospitals and practices that invest in the latest technologies and medical advancements for the benefit of area patients seeking well-researched, cutting-edge treatments. The state of medicine in Louisiana is robust and growing. The following news from a variety of specialists, practices, schools, hospitals and insurance providers may be helpful for your or a loved one along your journey to wellness. Advancements in pain management and obesity as well as gynecologic care and spinal surgery are just a few of the highlighted offerings. News from Specialists Statewide Southern Pain & Neurological is happy to offer Superion Indirect Decompression System, a new, minimally invasive treatment for lumbar stenosis that fits in the gap between conservative care and invasive surgery. FDA approved and covered by Medicare, this outpatient treatment is especially helpful for older patients and those not able to tolerate more invasive laminectomy to treat significant limitation in walking or continuous standing. Clinical trials indicated 90 percent patient satisfaction through 60 months. Successful reduction in leg pain was rated at 75 percent for 56

Superion, which was better than a laminectomy and for the same evaluation period. No opiates are needed after this procedure. Doctors Paul Hubbell, Barry Faust, and Donald Richardson understand that chronic pain, especially stenosis and resultant claudication, creates a prison for patients, disabling them from an active lifestyle. The stress from walking and standing pain negatively affects personalities and decreases freedom. If you are suffering from chronic pain, contact Southern Pain and find out if the Superion minimally invasive indirect decompression system or something else is right for you. For information and scheduling at the Metairie, Marrero and Covington office, call 1-800-277-1265.

Easy Does It Holiday entertaining with a regional flair simplified at Gourmet Butcher Block Cajun specialty meat market in Gretna by Jyl Benson photo by Romero & Romero

A gardener, I came a across Southern

Gateway garden center a couple of years ago. A sign reading “90,000 square feet of greenhouses” caused me to slam on the brakes and make a sharp turn off of Belle Chase Highway on to Timber Ridge. Probably a hundred visits later, Darryl Relle, a master garden expert, proprietor of Southern Gateway, and now my friend advised that I visit his brother in-law “just up the street” when I could not figure out what to serve for a barbecue. While I relish a trip to Acadiana to fill up an ice chest with the region’s specialties, Gourmet Butcher Block now fills the need when I do not have a day and a tank of gas to burn. Established in 1994 by Leah Hebert Mistich and her husband Glenn Mistich, this meat market has revolutionized the way many in this region eat and entertain. In the 1970s, Leah’s parents opened Soop’s Restaurant in Maurice, offering slices of de-boned stuffed chicken on their plate lunches. Customers began purchasing the de-boned chickens raw and prepared them at home for dinner. The family restaurant soon spun off Hebert’s Meat Market next door (the family now has nine locations spanning the Gulf south). Before marrying Leah, Glenn was a commercial fisherman who worked in

the meat market where he developed the skills needed to do-bone a chicken in 30 seconds. Eventually the couple made their way to the New Orleans area to open the first incarnation of Gourmet Butcher Block in Terrytown. Three months after opening the business the late, beloved New Orleans television personality, Frank Davis, featured Gourmet Butcher Block on a segment of “Naturally N’Awlins” and then hooked the Mistichs up with football announcer John Madden, exposing them to a national audience. They quickly outgrew their first space before moving to a larger nearby location, which they also quickly outgrew before opening their current location, a sprawling upscale spot in Belle Chase in 2010, which, Glenn says, they “outgrew pretty much as soon as we moved in.” The top seller is the de-boned chicken stuffed with shrimp dressing. On a regular day Glenn says they will off-load 300 of the tasty birds onto their ravenous customer base. Holiday season sees this spike to around 1,000 fresh and another 1,000 frozen each day. He says they have sold as many as 6,000 Turduckhens in the week leading up to Thanksgiving. “I never dreamt it would come to this,” Glenn, 57, says. “I quit school in the 10th grade to be a commercial fisherman. Then I met my wife and life followed. Now I see my son, Chazz (26), in the business and taking over. It is a dream come true.” n

Playing with His Food Chef Jeremy Conner serves up playful coastal and bayou flavors at Spoonbill in Lafayette By Ashley mclellan portrait by Romero & Romero

W h i l e Sp o o n b i ll W a t e r i n g H o l e &

Restaurant partner and chef Jeremy Conner isn’t originally from Louisiana, his deep southern roots (he was born in Opelika, Alabama) and passion for flavors are right at home in Lafayette. It is those qualities and years of experience working in kitchens from Pensacola, Florida to Alabama to Lafayette that are reflected in his unique Gulf Coast-meets-bayou menu at Spoonbill and that have made the restaurant a destination for food and fun lovers. “I have lived in Louisiana for 11 years now and have developed a serious taste for the flavors of this area,” he said. “Combine them … with my immersion in the coastal flavors of Northwest Florida and you get a wide array of techniques and flavors that represent the best parts of Southern food.” Conner has been cooking since he was a teen, at first just to earn some money, but he quickly embraced a career in the kitchen. Yet, while his skills and culinary know-how are top-notch, he maintains a sense of humor through his food, with a focus less on fanciful and more on flavorful. “I like bold flavors,” he said. “I like foods with lots of acid and great textures. I always like to include something unexpected and fun. Even when the food is thoughtful and fancy, I want it to be playful and comfortable, and I never want to take it too seriously.” That lighthearted take is reflected in the line up of offerings on the menu at Spoonbill, with the regular selection of lunch, brunch and dinner, but also with a special “linner” menu offered each day that may quickly become a favorite among afternoon visitors to the restaurant. “We have a small kitchen, which means we need some time to get some prep done during the day, but we never want to turn guests away,” Conner said. “So instead of closing between lunch and dinner, we just reduce the size of the menu. My business partner and our general manager, Stephen Verret, is the head of the dad joke department and he came up with the term.” n

Perfect Timing A holiday feast prepared in advance for stress-free entertaining by Stanley Dry photo and styling by Eugenia Uhl

Every year those of us who lack the

“organized” gene vow that this holiday season will be different. We’ve had enough of all-nighters and kitchen chaos, so we’re going to overcome our deficiency and prepare holiday meals with ruthless efficiency — and every year our resolutions come to naught. Usually it’s because our menus require too much last minute preparation. The key to stress-free holiday entertaining is to plan meals that can largely be prepared ahead of time. The holiday bird or roast has to be cooked the day of the meal, but so many of the accompanying dishes can be made on the preceding days. Construct a menu and lay out a game plan (on paper) that specifies exactly what is to be done on each day before the holiday and you’re halfway there. This month’s recipes can be prepared in advance, and while all of them may not fit into your plans, those that do will relieve some of the pressure. I love sweet potatoes, but I find them sweet enough without added sugar, so a sweet potato soup appeals to me. If you’re of the same mind, you might like to serve this version to start your meal. Prepare it a day or two ahead and simply reheat to serve. Wild rice is a delicious accompaniment to holiday birds. For a change of pace, this wild rice salad can be made the previous day and served at room temperature. For another change, try including a vegetable puree that can be prepared in advance and reheated. This recipe for one made with carrots, turnips and parsnips is both delicious and nutritious. Holiday dinners usually include pie — often pecan. It’s just about unthinkable to serve pecan pie without ice cream. Usually vanilla is the choice, but eggnog ice cream is a delicious and festive alternative. It can be made days in advance. A great way to end the feast is with a demitasse of strong black coffee and pecan pralines. These are rich, though not as sweet as some versions. I like them made about the size of a silver dollar. And, of course, they’re prepared far in advance of the meal. n

Wild Rice Salad Combine 1½ cups chicken broth and ½ cup wild rice in small pot, bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 45 minutes. Transfer to serving bowl. Toast ¼ cup pine nuts in a dry skillet over medium heat until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add pine nuts to wild rice. In the same skillet, cook ¼ cup diced onion and ¼ cup diced celery in 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil until barely softened. Add to rice mixture. Blanch 1 cup green peas in boiling salted water for 1 minute, drain, refresh under cold water and add to the salad. Add 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, 1 apple, cored and diced, 1 tablespoon chopped scallions (green part only), 1 tablespoon chopped parsley and 2 tablespoons chopped mint and combine well. Season with coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Serves 4.

Puree Of Winter Vegetables

Eggnog Ice Cream 3 tablespoons brandy 1 tablespoon dark rum

1 pound carrots 1 pound parsnips

¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, plus additional for garnish

3 cups chicken stock or broth

2 cups whole milk

¼ cup butter

1 cup heavy cream

Coarse salt and cayenne pepper to taste

8 egg yolks

1 pound turnips

1. Peel vegetables and slice. Put

vegetables and chicken stock or broth in a heavy pot with lid. Cover, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20-30 minutes. 2. Using a slotted spoon, transfer

half of the cooked vegetables to the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add some of the broth to moisten and process until you have a rough puree. 3. Transfer contents to another

pot and repeat with remainder of vegetables. Add butter to puree and season with salt and cayenne. Reheat slowly, while stirring. Add additional stock or broth, if needed. Makes 6 or more servings.

1 cup granulated sugar 1. Put brandy, rum and nutmeg

in a mixing bowl. Set bowl in a larger bowl containing ice and water.

2. Heat milk and cream in a heavy saucepan to just below a boil. In another mixing bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar until light and creamy. Slowly add hot milk and cream to egg yolks, a little at a time, while whisking constantly. 3. Return mixture to saucepan

and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with a heatproof silicone spatula (or wooden spoon) until thickened. The mixture will coat the spatula when ready and a finger drawn across the spatula will leave a track. 4. Strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer into bowl containing brandy, rum and nutmeg. Stir to combine. Stir occasionally until cool. Refrigerate, covered, until cold, then process in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to a container and freeze. Serve topped with a little grated nutmeg. Makes about 1 quart.

Pecan Pralines

Sweet Potato Soup 4 tablespoons butter 1 large onion, chopped 6 cups chicken stock or broth 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced Coarse salt to taste ½ cup sour cream or plain yogurt 2-3 tablespoons snipped chives Melt butter in a large, heavy pot add onions, cover and cook on low heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add chicken stock and sweet potatoes, bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Puree with an immersion blender or, working in batches, puree soup in blender until smooth. Reheat and season with salt. Serve garnished with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt sprinkled with snipped chives. Makes 6-8 servings.

Place 1 cup pecan halves and 1 cup pecan pieces on a baking sheet and toast in a 325 F oven for 10 minutes. In a saucepan, bring 1 cup heavy cream, 1½ cups granulated sugar and pecans to a boil and cook until the mixture reaches 234 degrees. Remove from heat, add 4 tablespoons butter and 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract. Beat until candy thickens. Drop by teaspoonfuls on buttered wax paper. Makes about 30 small pralines.

Cutting Edge History The future of the past has never been brighter at this French Quarter museum complex By Paul F. Stahls Jr.

The Historic New Orleans Collection

at 533 Royal St. in the French Quarter, with its cluster of meticulously restored landmarks and the chronologically displayed treasures of its Louisiana History Galleries, has long been considered a marvel of private funding and an irresistible medium for describing our beginnings. This year, suddenly, it seems, the institution has doubled in size and significance, courtesy of the April 2 opening of a magnificent new exhibit space at 520 Royal. Quite an address. The 1816 mansion and its celebrated courtyard were home until 1865 of well-remembered furniture merchant and designer Francois Seignouret, then until 1887 by noted wine importer Pierre Brulatour, its prominence then extended into modern times by housing for 47 years the city’s first TV station. Incidentally, the courtyard can rightfully claim to be one of the most painted and photographed scenes in the Quarter, stemming from the 1920s when, as home of the Arts and Crafts Club of New Orleans, 520 became a gathering place for local and visiting artists who simply could not resist painting the courtyard’s corner stair framed by its de rigueur Creole arch. The purchase by HNOC actually occurred in 2006, but then came a decade of archaeological digs in accessible spaces, expert analyses of every aesthetic and structural aspect of the three-story building, and removal of some mid-20th-century rear structures to make way for an exciting addition – an attached three-story wing that doubled the exhibit space at every level. That’s a 13-year wait, all told, but truly the timing has been perfect, with this massive project serving as a salute to the city’s tricentennial era as well as a triumphant send-off for Priscilla Lawrence, retiring after 39 years as staffer, director and president/ CEO of the HNOC.

Louisiana Life november/december 2019

As part of the expansion, the museum’s Although admission to HNOC is free, small shop at 533 Royal has crossed the tickets are necessary and can be acquired street to become a spacious and enticing along with a facility map at 520’s Welcome shop at 520, offering regional books (many Center. There too is one of the great attracpublished by HNOC itself), maps and prints, tions of the museum, a tabletop “smart map” locally inspired jewelry and decorator items, called “French Quarter at Your Fingertips,” plus desirable collectibles, “giftables” and which at a touch yields background inforsouvenirs. The shop’s side entrance opens mation on dozens of individual structures into the courtyard across from the museum’s and suggests self-guided tours on a variety Café Cour, and, between the two, clusters of of themes. Or download HNOC’s “French iron furniture invite visitors to relax with an Quarter Tours” app and virtually take the espresso, soup-and-salad or one of the hot “smarts” with you. and cold entrees. The home’s old carriageway and courtyard The Royal Street campus is open Tuesday lead to the Tricentennial Wing, where the first through Saturday, 9:30 am ­– 4:30 pm, and of its several galleries is named in honor of the on Sundays from 10:30 am ­– 4:30 pm. Call Helis Foundation, a philanthropy that funds 504-523-4662 for more information or visit many exhibits and provides free admission for hnoc.org. Louisiana citizens to many arts venues.


An exploration of the Seignouret-Brulatour Building is an experience in discovery, not only of French Quarter history and details of the building (like marble mantels, brick archways and intricate ironwork bearing Seignouret’s “S” initial) but also of the modern marvels of interactivity employed in every nook and cranny. Remember coin-operated binoculars? HNOC’s (free) have been souped up to virtualreality status, as have the headsets at every station in the second floor’s totally interactive Education Galleries. Up top awaits the first permanent exhibit ever dedicated to our legendary French Quarter, its topics ranging from Congo Square to Carnival, from pioneer recording studios to the first Jazz Festival, opening with a jolly display of vintage tourist maps. Each section consists of equal parts serious history and fun, like the Transportation section where elements of a streetcar’s interior are scattered about the exhibit to facilitate hands-on experiences, and the Commerce section where lighthearted examples of French Quarter souvenirs are seen alongside grim vestiges of slave trade. A small 360-degree theater mixes new and vintage footage to tell in yet another way the history of the Vieux Carré. Other categories — like art, literature and architecture — work together, like paintings by local artists used to introduce writers like Faulkner, George Washington Cable, Tennessee Williams and Grace King, while an Enrique Alférez bust introduces world chess champion Paul Morphy. Other French Quarter creations, like porcelain pieces, the works of silversmiths and a luscious Seignouret armoire, could stand alone in any gallery or museum.

DINE One of the benefits of a day at the Historic New Orleans Collection is the potential for dining in the three-by-four-block area

Back at old 533 Royal, besides the Louisiana History Galleries, the 1792 Merieult House and other landmarks still provide such important exhibit spaces as the Louisiana portrait gallery and the early-20th-century residence (with perfectly preserved furnishings and appliances) of Gen. and Mrs. L. Kemper Williams, founders of the HNOC and assemblers of the original collections. Three blocks away, the Williams Research Center at 410 Chartres provides additional exhibit space, not to mention research rooms where a request for perusal of any item from the 30,000-volume library, two miles of shelved documents and a half-million photographs and other images will be promptly provided. HNOC facilities are open 9:30-4:30 Tuesdays-Saturdays and 10:30-4:30 Sundays (504-523-4662, HNOC.org). n

that surrounds the place, containing, incredibly, all but one of the French Quarter’s truly famous and historic restaurants, plus several great younger ones. Imagine beginning a day with legendary breakfast at Brennan’s, followed by shrimp remoulade at Arnaud’s or the Grand Gouté at Galatoire’s, and ending with dinner at Antoine’s.

Offerings from the newer spots range from steaks at Dickie Brennan’s to the River Road flavors of Vacherie (tucked into Hotel St. Marie). And have we mentioned K-Paul’s? The muffulettas and Pimm’s Cups at Napoleon House? The Rib Room in the Royal Orleans? The grilled, fried or raw oysters at Felix’s? Bon appetit.

Holiday in Lights Nashville at Christmas is a wonderland of wintry fun By Cheré Coen

Music City is lit up any night of the

year — which makes sense, considering it’s the world epicenter of country music. During the holidays, however, Nashville glows. More than four million lights will be installed at First Tennessee Park in downtown Nashville, creating a winter wonderland complete with the country’s tallest Christmas trees, Santa’s workshop, ice skating and more.

History for the holidays

Early settlers named the town Fort Nashborough for Revolutionary War hero Gen. Francis Nash. The city later became Nashville, home to Andrew Jackson, hero of the Battle of New Orleans and later U.S. president. Jackson’s estate The Hermitage, where 95 percent of the furnishings are original, dresses up for the holidays with period attire. The Hermitage Hotel was named for Jackson’s estate — no real connection — but Nashville’s first million-dollar hotel built in 1910 is a wonderland in itself during the

A taste of Nashville

Did you know? Nashville’s Gaylord Opryland Resort, a massive complex of 3,000 guest rooms, restaurants and attractions, goes all out for the holidays. It’s all part of the resort’s “A Country Christmas” celebration, now its 36th year, that stretches from now through New Year’s.

We couldn’t decide what we loved most, the modern take on Southern dishes or the ambiance at The Southern Steak & Oyster in downtown Nashville. Visit for the food, naturally, but take time to peruse the walls filled with Nashville artifacts. Even the bathrooms show videos of musicians appearing on “The Johnny Cash Show.” Speaking of Cash, new to town is Johnny Cash’s Kitchen & Saloon, a meat and three venue serviced by Swett’s, a Nashville establishment. “Dad’s favorite foods in the world are exactly what you will find on the menu,” said John Carter Cash at the restaurant’s opening. “I remember my father and mother bringing me to Swett’s when I was but a small boy. Southern cooking was my father’s very lifeblood and tradition, and I firmly believe it does not get any better than this.” The first floor recreates Johnny and June Cash’s home with never-before-seen photos of the family. Visitors can also relax in the replica of the Cash Cabin front porch or listen to music backed by a mural of the Cash home that once stood on nearby Old Hickory Lake. ​

Fresh Pick New Orleans forager Ashley Locklear discovers the choicest ingredients for award-winning chefs By laura mcknight portrait by romero & romero

Ashley Locklear works for some of New

Orleans’ most celebrated restaurants, but her work often carries her away from kitchens and dining rooms. She travels a circuit of farms in southern Louisiana and Mississippi, bumping through fields behind tractors, jotting notes on soil conditions and crouching alongside farmers to peer at ripening greens. A full-time forager for the Link Restaurant Group, Locklear forges relationships between local farmers and renowned New Orleans chefs, building connections that produce award-winning food. The Florida native began interacting with local farmers and chefs in 2008, when she moved to New Orleans and helped start the Hollygrove Market and Farm. As chefs began visiting the now-defunct market, Locklear noted a “huge need” among restaurants for wholesale, locally grown ingredients. Chef Donald Link and his partners hired Locklear in 2010 to work closely with area farmers on filling wish lists of fresh ingredients. The relationships require trust, as producers commit to raising particular hog breeds or undertaking seed trials to grow radicchio, arugula and other colder-climate greens that can withstand Gulf Coast heat and pests. Rebecca Wilcomb, chef/partner of the new Gianna Restaurant, said Locklear is adept at working with farmers to procure ingredients that cater to chefs’ individual desires, such as the bolder, funkier arugula preferred by Wilcomb. Locklear played a vital role in establishing a partnership with Mississippi-based Rocking R Dairy, which provides the hogs for Cochon’s famed charcuterie program. The specially bred hogs have allowed chefs to experiment and expand the charcuterie operation, which has in turn fostered new generations of New Orleans butchers, Locklear said. As Locklear walks the fields and bends over rows of greens, side-by-side with farmers, her work strengthens conversation between the producers and preparers of food and serves as a visible reminder that even the most elevated cuisine begins in the ground. “I like seeing the dialogue, how it gets interpreted on the plate or on the menu,” she said. n

What are some common misconceptions about your work? They think I’m out in the middle of the woods crawling around and coming out with mushrooms ... I have done that. It’s not worth the time to dig around like that.
