Dear Julia, Some of our beloved oaks in City Park stand in a row all leaning in one direction. My question is this: did a strong, possibly hurricane force, wind sometime in their long history cause them to grow that way, or was it some other phenomenon? Also, does Poydras, social distancing of course, ever visit his cousins in City Park? I haven’t seen the parrots lately; maybe they are visiting him. Thank you, Tamalane Blessey (New Orleans) It is possible one or more storms shaped the trees long ago, when they were young and supple, but pinpointing an exact wind event that probably predates modern weather records might be difficult or impossible. Strong sunlight, gravity, soil erosion or damaged roots can also cause trees to lean, so wind is not the only possible explanation to consider. You may have missed the Monk parakeets, but they are still living throughout City Park. There have been recent sightings in Scout Island, Couturie Forest, the old East Golf Course and the New Orleans Botanical Gardens. By the 8 JUNE 2020 MYNEWORLEANS.COM

Dear Julia Having just seen an advertisement in the latest issue for a bar on North Rendon street made me think about a watering hole my colleagues and I use to frequent on Fridays in the early 70s to celebrate the end of the week. I believe it was called the Rendon Inn. They served the coldest Regal beer on draft in huge ice-covered glasses stored in a freezer. Can you tell me a bit of the history of the place and how long it stayed in business? Once my office moved into the CBD from Jeff Davis Parkway I never went back for another Friday refresher. Steve Cassiani (Houston, TX)

way, Poydras avoids interacting with others completely becaue he can’t find beak-sized protective masks.

In 1932, Harold Henry opened a grocery at the corner of Eve and South Rendon. When Prohibition ended and beer could flow again, Henry continued to run the joint under the name “Henry’s Bar.” In 1937, he sold the business to Mike Tusa, a native of Salaparuta, Sicily, who changed the name to Rendon Inn. The business remained in the Tusa family for about 60 years.

Dear Julia and Poydras, I have a question concerning a name I have seen many times, Collins C. Diboll. Who exactly was he? Also, what was his connection to the street around NOMA, the Vieux Carré digital survey and the passageway from Jefferson Highway to River Road by Ochsner Hospital in Jefferson Parish? Mike Staiano (Metairie, LA) Collins Cerré Diboll, Jr. (19041987) was a local architect whose specialty was designing parking garages. An intensely private person, he died in 1987. Per his wishes, the Collins C. Diboll Foundation was created to provide support to nonprofit “…organizations that create sustainable community improvement in the areas of higher education, culture and the arts in the Greater New Orleans area.” During his lifetime, Diboll was an architectural consultant to Ochsner and designed some of its buildings.

Dear Julia, I am confused about your answer on the “Last Streetcar New Orleans” spoon. Especially the end of the answer saying, “St Charles cars remained until 1988....Riverfront line, the last and only streetcars in New Orleans.” What are you trying to say? Streetcars are running today. Are you referring to the type of car? Paul Forde (New Orleans) It is hard to get good history from a spoon. From 1964 to 1988 the St. Charles line was the only surviving service. A Canal Street line and others had been closed earlier. The St. Charles line still uses the vintage Perley-Thomas streetcars that have always been used. Newer lines (the red streetcars) that have opened on Canal and Basin streets and the riverfront have more modern models. I think what the spoon was trying to say is that the St. Charles streetcars are the last of the early vintage trolleys. •


The people here, the people I have grown up around, are so real and have a lot of heart. I try to be true to that in my music.

Q: You’ve said that you’ve been inspired by Elvis; are there any Louisiana musicians you grew up listening to and being inspired by? I think, being exposed to a big mix of music made in Louisiana has influenced me, from jazz to zydeco to rockabilly, it’s all got something to do with who I am and the songs I play and sing.

Q: What was it like to be able to shoot your latest video for the song “Ground I Grew Up On” right here in your home state?  It was the best way possible to shoot my first video with family and friends doing what we do, hanging out and being together on the water. That’s my older brother in the boat with me and my drummer/cousin Trent in the other. 

Q: What inspired your two latest releases, “Ground I Grew Up On” and “Let There Be Country?” “Let There Be Country” is

Laine Hardy Louisiana’s American Idol by Ashley McLellan

LOUISIANA NATIVE LAINE HARDY has always been a performer. The southern rocker started playing guitar at the age of 8, and by 14 he was performing in a band. When a friend asked him to come with her to audition for the singing competition American Idol, he went along for the ride. The judges saw something in him and eventually he went on to audition himself; a journey that took him all the way to earning the top spot as season 17 Idol winner. New Orleans Magazine caught up with Hardy on his spring virtual tour.

Q: Who or what inspired you to audition for American Idol? The first time I was on the show, my mom encouraged me to try out. The second time, I guess you could say, Luke, Katy and Lionel get the credit. I was just there to help play for a friend. 

Q: What was that moment like when you were announced as the winner of American Idol? It is still one big blur. At times it just seems like yesterday

my favorite to play live. That song just talks about what we do, and it rocks. I can’t believe how much “Ground I Grew Up On” describes my upbringing and life here in Louisiana. When my producer Michael Knox played it for me, I knew we needed to cut it. 

Q: What has it been like launching a virtual tour as opposed to touring live and in person? Live touring and being in the same room is always the best, but we are all in this together and understand we’ve had to make sacrifices. Luckily, we have ways to stay connected to fans and still play shows through the vTour. 

Q: Has it been strange to adjust to life as an Idol? Home always keeps me grounded and inspired. I can take any adjustments when I have the support system I have back here. 

Q: What have been some of your favorite places to play live music? We had an awesome show at Six Seconds Saloon in Indy last years on tour. 

that this all started. It has been such a wild ride since Hollywood. 

Q: Where are you looking forward to performing when it’s safe to play live again? Everywhere. The list is long. Texas,

Q: How did growing up in Louisiana influence you and your music?

Tennessee, Oregon, Ohio, Montana, so many more, and especially here in Louisiana. •


Born/raised: Livingston, LA Education: French Settlement High School. Favorite movie: Hercules is my favorite Disney movie and I love all of the Rambo and Rocky Series.  Favorite streaming show: Outerbanks. Book you are reading right now: Bible. Favorite place to listen to live music: Any one of our great places on the river.  Poor boy, dressed or plain: Dressed. Favorite crawfish boil vegetable: Corn.

TRUE CONFESSION: I am pretty shy.




Putting on the Pounds When Eating Goes Viral by Chris Rose

COVID-19. Not just a lethal virus anymore. Now it’s also the name of the weight gain phenomenon experienced by many New Orleanians in the wake of the outbreak. COVID-19; that’s four pounds more than the traditional Freshman-15, that annual surge that preys upon college campuses every fall and winter. It’s the “other” hidden health risk to the local population since all the gyms closed, we moored ourselves to our couches, binge-watched Netflix and Hulu and discovered our inner Emeril. Pushing over-loaded grocery carts down supermarket aisles replaced pushing 180 pounds on the bench press. More prescribed medicine, less medicine ball. Cooking more, eating more, doing less. You don’t need to be Dr. Fauci to forecast the expected results. Blame it all on iron skillets, casserole dishes and too much time on our hands. Plenty enough of it to riffle through the huge collections of 1 2 JUNE 2020 MYNEWORLEANS.COM

cookbooks that seemingly all of us have stockpiled over the years but never actually cracked the spines to. Most folks I know just think they make for sophisticated interior décor and the trappings of a life well-lived. Check it: Next time you’re at a friend’s house – if your friends ever let you in their houses again – secretly inspect the cookbook shelf and see how many of them actually have gravy or red wine stains on them. Poseurs! Another method for waking and baking every day, of course, are those yellowed index card files held together with paper clips (remember those?) which contain decades of Grandma Weber’s beloved – but very secret – recipes for lasagna, lemon ice box pie and cream chicken. (Secret: Lots of cream.) “Comfort Food” is a relative term. For most folks, I suppose it’s the aforementioned recipes and

processes, three hours over the stove using two sticks of butter, a cup of sugar and a whole lotta love – and time – to achieve Epicurean grace. For others, comfort food comes from fast food drive-throughs, those ubiquitous Mexican food trucks and the corona-inspired trend of cafe and bistro sidewalk pickup tables. After all, what could be more comfortable than sitting in your own climate-controlled luxury sedan listening to NPR while waiting for dinner to be served in Styrofoam containers and brown paper bags? I can answer that: Not leaving the house at all, sitting on your couch waiting for someone to bring dinner to you. Now that’s comfort. Added bonus: Plastic ware. No dishes to do. But then, what to do with all that extra comfort time when we cheat our own kitchens? Cue up another episode of “Eve,” I suppose. And voila! The dreaded second wave of the COVID-19 washing over us. In pounds, we hope. Not the

other thing. Then again, I have witnessed many folks taking an aggressive approach against the COVID-19 (the food one) for these past few months. From my Mid-City apartment – as the days turned into weeks and the weeks into months – there has been an impressive surge of physical activity. Cyclists, joggers, dog walkers, strollers, kayaks on rooftops. As sheltering in place turned into social distancing and then morphed into the “if I don’t get out of the house soon I will probably kill someone I love very much and then regret it terribly for the rest of my life” phase – lots of folks, friends and families began filling neighborhood streets and parks and waterways. In small groups, of course. And at safe distance. OK, those haven’t always been the cases, but with all this time on people’s hands, once they’ve rearranged the kitchen cupboards three times and read the complete unabridged works of Camus – “The Plague” twice, just to refresh the imagination – it’s time to get some fresh air. Hoping the air doesn’t kill us. And there was no lack of fresh air in the first two months of the pandemic here in New Orleans. Did you notice that? How March and April of 2020 will go down as some of the most beautiful weather the area has ever experienced in springtime. Some kind of taunting scheme by Mother Nature, no doubt, since so many of us didn’t get the chance to enjoy it. You can tell who did take the chance to exercise. They’re not pale, wobbly on their feet and don’t need to go out and replace all of their pants, skirts, shorts and bathing suits that got too tight from weeks/ months of inactivity. That is, once the day comes when you can actually find a place to replace all that stuff. Here’s hoping. • JASON RAISH ILLUSTRATION




blames the pandemic on goat yoga. You ever hear of goat yoga? It’s this gimmick where you get on your hands and knees and the yoga teacher perches a little bitty baby goat on your back. According to Google, it “brings levity into the classes.” The yoga classes I been in got plenty levity, if you like Bean-O jokes. Anyway, Ms. Larda saw Sheba Turk demonstrating goat yoga on Channel 4. She had never heard of such a thing, and for some reason, maybe because she been isolating too long, she goes berserk. She emails Channel 4 and says what she thinks, “The Lord saw goat yoga and said, ‘Time to shock humans back to sanity. A pandemic should do it.’” Then she calls to tell me about it. After she’s done ranting, I try to explain that the pandemic actually started because somebody ate a bat in China. Which makes her decide I am crazy. “A bat,” she says. “Did you see a Bat Signal in the sky, Modine?” I tell her I read about it. It is one of them cases where truth is stranger than fiction. “Maybe you should read less. Get busy. Work from home. Keep yourself sane,” she says. Now, I am a French Quarter walking tour guide. Try doing that from home. I live in the Quarter in an apart1 4 JUNE 2020 MYNEWORLEANS.COM

ment behind my gentleman friend Lust’s bar, the Sloth Lounge. Before Katrina, I lived in Chalmette my whole life. The Quarter ain’t Chalmette, but it’s gotten to be home, with live music and historic places and dirty jokes and laughing and everybody knows where you got them shoes. Until it stopped. And we started hearing a different kind of live music—- birds singing. Birds. Who knew? Things started to smell better. But we still need to eat. The Sloth Lounge had to close, but thank God, Lust owns a half-interest in Sloth Gas 4 U, a filling station and convenience store his brother Larry runs in Chalmette. So we

got a source for unhealthy snacks and restroom toilet paper, which is more than a lot of people can say. We actually have a whole lot of toilet paper, because Sloth Gas 4 U has indoor restrooms, and in December Larry got a sweet deal on a truckload of those gigantic toilet paper rolls - you know, the rolls that are so big you can hardly turn them when you are sitting in the stall. Two or three squares max. I guess that’s the point. He had them stacked like truck tires in his storeroom, but he hauled over five rolls for us. I got nothing better to do, so I start re-rolling them into normal-size rolls. Lust finds some cardboard and my daughter Gladiola cuts it up and

makes the center tubes. After we finish a dozen rolls, a light bulb goes off over all our heads. We drag a table to the Sloth Lounge’s front door, prop it open, stack our re-rolled rolls on it, and Gladiola writes up a notice on the what usually is the happy hour drink of the day chalkboard. “TOILET PAPER. Take what you need; pay what you can.” And we put out a pint mug for donations. Gladiola spreads the word on Snapchat and whatever else she communicates on; I post it on Facebook, and Lust makes a few calls. In 30 minutes, the paper is gone; the pint mug is full, and I am re-rolling more as fast as I can. That afternoon Ms. Larda calls. She talks very slowly and gently, like you’d talk to somebody who is – um - a few squares short of a roll, if you know what I mean. She says she knows she told me to work from home, but now she hears that I am selling recycled toilet paper, and that don’t sound very sanitary to her. Dear Gawd. I explain, it’s re-rolled, not recycled. There’s a difference. Then she inquires if I seen any bat signals lately? Done any goat yoga? I say, “No, ma’am.” She exhales. “Okay then. Stay safe, Modine,” she says. You too. •




Easy Living Historically-inspired Pass Christian home by Lee Cutrone photographed by Greg Miles BRIDGET AND BOBBY BORIES BOTH HAVE A LONGTIME

connection to the town of Pass Christian, Mississippi. Bridget spent time along the coast as a teenager and Bobby’s family has owned the same waterfront property for a century. Five years ago, the couple built a vacation home of their own on the property so that they and their family could continue that legacy. Bobby’s great-grandparents, Juanita and William B. Burkenroad, built the first of the family’s succession of homes in 1921. In the 1960s, their son, William B. Burkenroad Jr. and his wife Evelyn, moved the 1921 house to Second Street (behind the property) and then built a mid-century modern house where his children and grandchildren vacationed. When that house was destroyed by Katrina, Bridget and Bobby bought the land, tore down what remained and in 2014, began designing a new house. The Borieses made a list of architects, which ultimately led them to George Hopkins, principal of The Hopkins Company. “We had some idea of what we wanted but we also wanted to let the architect steer us,” said Bobby. The couple also teamed up with contractor Renee St. Paul of Southcoast Construction and interior designer Heidi Friedler of Heidi Friedler Interiors, and began with some basic principles. They wanted a house that was strong 1 6 JUNE 2020 MYNEWORLEANS.COM

enough to withstand hurricanes and tidal surges, that was easy to maintain, that offered spaces for gathering and privacy, that included two master suites, and that had porches and balconies to capture the views and breezes. The new structure would have to stand up to the marine climate, meet building codes that have changed since Hurricane Katrina and follow rules set in place by preservationists. As the newest in a line of three family houses (all dubbed Burkedale after the Burkenroads), the project also took design elements from the two previous houses. The ideas for the balconies, porches and porte cochere all came from the 1921 house and were modernized for today. Hopkins incorporated the Borieses’ ideas into a coastal vacation house comprised of a central 1 ½-story volume with symmetrical two-story wings on either end. Because the land is located on a bluff, it already met the elevation requirements, so the plans raised the house only a few steps, allowing it to look like the area’s traditional forbears. Hopkins placed the bedrooms (two masters and two guests) upstairs with doors that open onto balconies overlooking the water to take advantage of the views and provide a separation between the downstairs living and upstairs sleeping areas. Twin staircases in the great room lead to the suites with a hallway linking the two and an

Above: The blending of living and dining areas is well-suited to entertaining. Like the older versions of Burkedale, the current house has pocket doors separating the dining area from the kitchen so that several groups of people can eat in different areas. Twin staircases in the great room provide access to the two masters. Facing page: Top, left: The kitchen includes: a vent hood (designed by Hopkins’ team) covered with v-joint tongue-in-groove wood that looks like shiplap and porcelain tile floors that look like pier wood (Boardwalk by Mediterranea). Eames molded plastic counter stools from DWR were chosen to mimic the classic Eames shell chairs that were in the 1960s midcentury modern version of Burkedale. Dual dishwashers, requested by Bridget, who loves to cook, were placed on either side of the sink.

elevator for convenience. There is plenty of space for family to fan out. In addition to the kitchen, living and dining areas, Hopkins included a keeping room, a downstairs den, an upstairs sitting area, and indoor and outdoor porches. “Our intent was to design a classic house of the historic Gulf Coast vernacular,” Hopkins said. The cooling white of the interior, durable water-resistant materials such as ceramic flooring, fiberglass windows and hardy board, and amenities such as a SMART HVAC system offer practical solutions to sun, sand, moisture, and constant

in-and-out traffic. Whether relaxing by themselves or hosting children and grandchildren, the Borieses say their pass times include sailing, crabbing, golf, tennis, cycling, picking blackberries, grilling and visiting local festivals. “The floorplan facilitates the spirit of the indoor/outdoor activity that has occurred for generations and that their grandparents enjoyed,” Hopkins said. “We are bringing the past to the present.” “We love it and we spend more time here than we ever imagined we would,” said Bridget. “Working with George, Renee and Heidi made it easy.” • MYNEWORLEANS.COM JUNE 2020 1 7





HOW T O G E T YOU R HOM E DÉ C OR I N S H A P E F OR S U M M E R ow that summer is here, it’s time to sweep out the corners, bring in some color and freshen up your home. We asked experts from across New Orleans for their best tips on creating a clean and summery transformation for your interior.

Susan Currie, Allied ASID, CAPS Susan Currie Design, 233 Walnut Street, 237-6112 Summer is here. It’s time to lighten and brighten your home with colors that remind us of the beach -- sunny yellows, oranges, and blues. I like to mix

these with white for the perfect summer look. White slipcovers are a Southern tradition, and a great way to add a breath of fresh air to your room. Now that we are all spending so much time at home, we can’t help but think about ways to spruce our homes up. Paint is one of the most popular DIY projects and it’s very cost efficient, too. Pick out a few paint colors, brush up some samples, and choose a favorite to brighten your space. While you’re at it, it’s a good idea to repaint your ceiling. They can start to look tired over time. Sherwin Williams’ Alabaster is one of my favorites for ceilings. We also want our rooms to have a cooler feel in the summer. Consider temporarily removing dark-colored items. Maybe you want to order some

new throw pillows online. Roll up the Oriental rugs in favor of a sisal, or try a hand-woven rug with great summertime colors – citrus yellow or marine blue. Then add fragrant flowers from the florist or better yet, your garden, in white vases to complement the room’s new lighter palette. Here’s another easy idea – let the sunshine in. Clean that dust and pollen off your windows, inside and out, so the sun can really shine in your summery new room. If you have a ladder, this is something you can do early in the morning before the day gets too hot. All you need is a little dishwashing liquid in water, a squeegee, a rag, and some elbow grease. My last tip is to find a playlist that takes you away to the ocean or lake. I think we are all going to have to dream of a faraway beach or water’s edge until the threat of COVID-19 eases up. Penny D. Francis, Associate ASID, IIDA, Principal Designer/Owner Eclectic Home, 8211 Oak Street, 866-6654 We all love being outdoors during the summer months, even in Southern Louisiana, mosquitos and all. Here are some tips to improve your summer outdoor experiences which also translate to indoors as well.  Take the plunge.  Mix and match your outdoor furnishings.  Gone are the days of matching all your exterior furnishings. Think of outdoors like you do indoors, reflecting a great collection of furnishings that reflect your personal style and taste. Add a swing to your front porch or hang from a tree. Add a unique sculptural chair for a bit of wow factor to your interior. Remember a little goes a long way.  A unique find, vintage or antique adds interest to your interior décor. Don’t be afraid of color.  Color evokes emotion and no better way than to add without a major commitment is in pillows and rugs. Colorful pillows with pattern and texture on your outdoor an indoor furniture adds a great deal of interest. Add colorful pots and plants to your interior and exterior décor.  I always say an interior needs “proof of life” plants, fruit in colorful unique bowls and pots are perfect additions to any interior and exterior décor. No hard rules here, just don’t take it all to seriously, play and enjoy.  You might just like it.   Leslie Raymond RA, LEED AP, Architect, Senior Associate Albert Architecture, 3221 Tulane Avenue, 827-0056  Summer is a time to bring the outdoors in, and what better way than with displays of fresh flowers and produce. Cut a palm frond from your garden and put it in a tall slim vase in your living room as a statement pop of green. Find a large glass bowl and fill it with peaches or another colorful fruit. Not only is this a beautiful centerpiece, but it encourages a healthy and refreshing snack on hot summer days. Tara Shaw  Design Antiques Maison, 5833 Magazine Street, 525-1131 What I love to do to make me feel like I have had a full makeover in my home is to move furniture around. Art that was at one time upstairs comes down and my console in the foyer can become my beside table and vice versa. Reupholstery on pieces that feel tired and adding new accessories keep your home feeling more current. If you can, add one nice piece of furniture a year, the treasure hunt is half the fun.

Brett A. Rector, Realtor, Broker/Owner Witry Collective, 900 Camp Street, Suite 301, 291-2022 Plant that garden. Raised vegetable beds are a great source for fresh produce through the summer months. Plus, it’s a great project to keep the young ones busy with water, weeding, etc. Trim the shrubs, pop some colorful blooms into those beds. This will give the exterior a freshened look and it’s a good, low impact physical activity the entire family can participate in.  Freshen your paint. Now is a great time to touch up paint, from wall scuffs to chips in the trim. Try a lighter, brighter color with maybe an accent wall in the living area. I think there will be a trend away from grays and more neutral tones. Lighter, brighter colors lift your mood. Buy local. Our local cultural communities have been hard hit with the quarantine and economic downturn. Now is a great time to purchase local, brighten up a room or two and give back to your artist community.  DIY grouting projects. YouTube has tons of DIY videos and is a great resource for small home projects. Reseal and refresh the grout in the shower, tub surround, kitchen backsplash. Not only will it brighten and freshen up the look but it prevents the potential for hidden water damage.   Stacie Carubba Athena Real Estate, 118 W. Harrison Avenue, #301, 507-8331 Freshening up your home for summer can be as simple as planting a few flowers in your garden, pressure washing or putting a fresh coat of paint on your shutters. Some other easy ideas are to change your curtains, re-arrange furniture, add summer scents throughout or maybe a pop of color with a throw pillow. If you’re thinking about selling during peak real estate season, consider sprucing up kitchens and bathrooms and possibly changing light fixtures. Small details can really go the extra mile in a competitive market. •

Dale Curry is the author of the upcoming "The Essential New Orleans Cookbook," a publication from Renaissance Publishing. The former food editor of The TimesPicayune, she is also the author of "New Orleans Home Cooking,” and "Gumbo," a Savor the South cookbook.



y first invitation to lunch In New Orleans after moving here was to meet under the clock at D.H. Holmes and then it was on to Galatoire's. I'll never forget that meal - oysters Rockefeller and shrimp-and crab-stuffed eggplant. It took about half a minute to think I'd died and gone to heaven. I've never met a transplant to New Orleans who didn't have a similar reaction. The joy of food and the fun of fellowship compose the lifestyle of our warmhearted city, born of French tastes and bred in the joie de vivre. A thought struck me during the stay-home days of the deadly coronavirus. It was that more people were cooking at home than had ever cooked before in metropolitan New Orleans. Were they dragging out "River Road Recipes" or "Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Kitchen?” Or, did they do traditional red beans and rice on Monday and seafood  gumbo on Friday? With restaurants closed, were they beginning to cook like generations before them? In "The New Orleans Restaurant Cookbook,"


published in 1967, New Yorker Deirdre Stanforth said, "New Orleans is the most food-conscious community in America; in fact, it may well be the only city outside of France where eating is a major love affair of the population." Her tattered cookbook, with recipes from the city's great restaurants, sits on my shelf alongside the equally worn "Picayune Creole Cook Book," published in 1901 as a bible for home cooks in the city. Recipes include crawfish, turtle and other oddities rarely cooked elsewhere in the United States. Many of the 120-year-old recipes are still in action today including oyster dressing, crawfish bisque, courtbouillon, grillades and pralines.  All in all, it's what's for dinner, day in and day out. It will be interesting to see our population barrel into restaurants on the early days of openings. I would be willing to bet that a few people have learned to cook and that many of us will enjoy cooking more than ever. We will forever recall the good things that came out of our quarantine. Perhaps, continuing our great culinary traditions will be one of them.


The New Orleans Muffaletta The most popular dish at the Napoleon House, the muffaletta is named for a type of bread baked in Sicily. The sandwich itself was invented in 1906 in by Salvador Lupo, owner of Central Grocery. The bread was baked originally by Union Bakery, owned by a cousin of the Impastato family, which originally owned the grocery. Makes 2 to 4 servings.

Olive salad 1 cup pitted green olives, roughly chopped ½ cup pitted kalamata and/ or black olives, roughly chopped 2 tablespoons capers ½ cup gardiniera (pickled vegetables in a jar), chopped 1 stalk celery, chopped 4 garlic cloves, minced ⅓ cup roasted red bell pepper, chopped ⅓ cup chopped onions ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil ¼ cup red wine vinegar Sea salt and freshly ground 
black pepper to taste Makes 3 cups Sandwich 2 7-inch round muffaletta loaves with sesame seeds* ¼ pound Genoa salami, sliced thin ¼ pound capicola or ham, sliced thin ¼ pound mortadella or sopressata, sliced thin ¼ pound provolone, sliced thin ¼ pound mozzarella, sliced thin

Muffaletta loaves are not widely available at retail stores. Rouses and Breaux Mart make 7-inch seeded Italian muffaletta loaves.

1. Mix olive salad ingredients at least a few hours ahead of time in order for them to marinate. Place in a jar or closed container. 2. Slice muffaletta loaves in half horizontally and place inside up. Spread each with the olive salad, and pour remaining liquid over all. Then alternate the meats and cheeses on the bottom sides and carefully cover with tops. Wrap in foil and let marinate for at least an hour before serving. The sandwich is usually served cold, cut into fourths or smaller wedges. If you prefer it heated, place in a preheated 350-degree oven, still wrapped in foil, for 15 minutes before cutting.

Creole Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya 2 pounds shrimp 2 tablespoons oil 1 pound smoked sausage, cut into  inch rounds 1 medium onion, chopped 1 bunch green onions, white and green parts divided, chopped ½ green bell pepper, chopped ½ red bell pepper, chopped 2 stalks celery, chopped 4 garlic cloves, minced 4 large fresh ripe tomatoes, or 1 14.5-ounce can whole Roma tomatoes, chopped, with their juice 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning 2 cups long-grain rice ¼ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley Salt, freshly ground black pepper and Creole seasoning to taste 1. Peel and devein shrimp, reserving peelings and heads. Refrigerate shrimp. Place peelings and heads and 4 cups of water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 30 minutes. Strain and reserve stock. 2. In a large, heavy pot, heat oil and cook sausage pieces, turning, until brown. Remove to plate. 3. Add white onions to pot and sauté until caramelized. Add bell peppers and celery and sauté over low heat for 10 minutes. Add garlic and sauté a minute more. Add tomatoes and seasonings. Return sausage to pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, stirring, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add shrimp and cook for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat. 4. Meanwhile, measure shrimp stock and place in a medium saucepan with enough water to make 4 cups. Bring to a boil, add a light sprinkling of salt and rice, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until there’s no water in the bottom of the pot. 5. When all is cooked, gently fold rice, green onion tops and parsley into shrimp-sausage mixture.

There are a million ways to make jambalaya but this one covers most of the basics. We have to call it “Creole,” however, because of the tomatoes in it. Cajuns, on the other hand, frown upon that practice. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Trappey’s liquid is thickened. Drain first if using a brand of beans in water.


Use chicken or pork in place of shrimp

Take the chill out of winter with a warm pot of chili. This version combines beans and meat for a wholesome meal for family or a hungry group of sports lovers. It's great served with cornbread. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

There’s a lot to be said for a country-style whole meal cooked in a single pot. It’s easy on the cook and ingredients help to season each other. Makes 6 servings.

One-Pot Chicken Dinner 1 whole chicken 1 tablespoon butter 1 onion, chopped 2 stalks celery, cut in ¼-inch slices 2-3 carrots, scraped and cut into ¼-inch rounds 1 cup frozen lima beans 4 cups egg noodles Salt, freshly ground black pepper and Creole seasoning

1. Remove giblets from chicken and reserve for other use. Rinse chicken well, removing excess fat. Sprinkle with seasonings inside and out. 2. In a large, heavy pot, melt butter and saute onion and celery until wilted. Add 4 cups water, and place chicken in pot. Sprinkle water with a little more seasoning. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and simmer on low

heat for about 20 minutes. 3. Turn chicken over and add carrots and lima beans to the pot, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Turn chicken over again. Increase heat to boiling and add noodles, pressing them into water. Reduce heat again and simmer until noodles are al dente, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. When ready to serve, cut chicken into pieces and slice breast.


Pair with a light and fruity pinot noir.

Salmon is wonderful with a smoky taste and so easy to cook on the grill. It cooks in minutes and tastes even fresher when basted with lemon and herbs. Makes 6 servings.

Grilled Salmon 1 side fresh salmon, about 2 †o 3 pounds 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper Fresh rosemary leaves, about 2 Tablespoons chopped, and some 
whole rosemary stems for garnish Juice of 1 lemon Lemon slices for garnish

1. Salmon can be grilled on either a charcoal grill or gas grill over medium heat. Grill should be scraped and oiled. Place grill about 5 inches over the heat source. 2. Prepare the salmon by sprinkling salt and pepper over both sides, pressing the seasonings into the flesh. 3. Combine 2 Tablespoons rosemary, lemon juice and olive oil in a bowl for basting fish.

4. About half an hour before you want to serve, brush one side of fish with olive oil mixture and place that side over a mediumhot grill. Baste the upper side. Cook for 5 minutes. Turn, baste again and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes, depending on size. Check center of the thickest part with a knife and remove from heat while the inside is pink and shiny. Place on a platter and garnish with rosemary stems and lemon slices.

Note: To add a special taste, replace the Parmesan with ½ pound of brie cheese, rind removed and torn into pieces. Add to hot pasta before adding tomatoes. You can still garnish with a sprinkle of Parmesan.

Creole Tomatoes
 and Sweet Basil 3 large, fresh red-ripe Creole tomatoes 1 cup, packed, fresh sweet basil leaves, roughly chopped, plus 8 whole leaves for garnish 3 large cloves garlic, minced ½ good-quality cup extra-virgin 
olive oil 1 pound angel hair or other pasta 1 cup freshly grated, high-quality Parmesan cheese Coarse salt and freshly grated black pepper to taste Pinch crushed red pepper flakes 1. Chop tomatoes into ½-inch wide cubes and place in medium bowl. Add chopped basil, garlic and seasonings and toss. 2. Cook pasta in lightly salted boiling water until just done. For angel hair, this takes a few minutes; for larger pasta, a little longer. Always pull out a piece and taste it for doneness. Drain and place in large serving bowl. 3. Add tomato mixture to pasta and toss. Sprinkle with Parmesan and toss. Adjust seasonings, and sprinkle top with extra Parmesan, if desired. Garnish with whole basil leaves.

When creole tomatoes are in season, there is no better complement than sweet basil and pasta. Add extra-virgin olive oil and garlic, and you have my favorite summer dish. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

TOP DENTIST This list is excerpted from the 2020 topDentists™ list, a database, which includes listings for more than 190 dentists and specialists in the New Orleans area. The Louisiana list is based on thousands of detailed evaluations of dentists and professionals by their peers. The complete database is available at usatopdentists. com. For more information call 706-364-0853; write P.O. Box 970, Augusta, GA 30903; email info@usatopdentists.com or visit usatopdentists.com.

SELECTION PROCESS "If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to?" This is the question we've asked thousands of dentists to help us determine who the topDentists should be. Dentists and specialists are asked to take into consideration years of experience, continuing education, manner with patients, use of new techniques and technologies and of course physical results. The nomination pool of dentists consists of all dentists listed online with the American Dental Association, as well as all dentists listed online with their local dental societies, thus allowing virtually every dentist the opportunity to participate. Dentists are also given the opportunity to nominate other dentists that they feel should be included in our list. Respondents are asked to put

aside any personal bias or political motivations and to use only their knowledge of their peer's work when evaluating the other nominees. Voters are asked to individually evaluate the practitioners on their ballot whose work they are familiar with. Once the balloting is completed, the scores are compiled and then averaged. The numerical average required for inclusion varies depending on the average for all the nominees within the specialty and the geographic area. Borderline cases are given a careful consideration by the editors. Voting characteristics and comments are taken into consideration while making decisions. Past awards a dentist has received, as well as status in various dental academies can play a factor in our decision. Once the decisions have been finalized, the included dentists are checked against state dental

boards for disciplinary actions to make sure they have an active license and are in good standing with the board. Then letters of congratulations are sent to all the listed dentists. Of course there are many fine dentists who are not included in this representative list. It is intended as a sampling of the great body of talent in the field of dentistry in Louisiana. A dentist’s inclusion on our list is based on the subjective judgments of his or her fellow dentists. While it is true that the lists may at times disproportionately reward visibility or popularity, we remain confident that our polling methodology largely corrects for any biases and that these lists continue to represent the most reliable, accurate, and useful list of dentists available anywhere.

IS AT-HOME WHITENING WORTH IT? We’ve all been there — you look in the mirror before leaving for work or a night out and notice your smile is not as bright as it once was. It might be tempting to find a quick, at-home whitening solution, especially with so many tips available online. But how do these DIY treatments actually affect our teeth? One of the most common suggestions involves two ingredients you probably have lying around the house: baking soda and lemon juice. Mixing a tablespoon of each yields a paste that, when left on teeth for about two minutes, can make your smile a few shades brighter. However tempting it might be to try this for yourself, dentists advise against such an abrasive solution. The acidity of lemon juice, combined with the abrasiveness of baking soda, can permanently damage your teeth, making them far more susceptible to surface stains or enamel erosion down the line. The best way to take care of your smile at home? Simply change any habits that might lead to further discoloration — cut down on sugars, sodas and smoking — and either use whitening toothpaste or at-home whitening trays as directed. But for a deeper, more intense whitening treatment, your smile is best left in the hands of the experts.

Luckily for the team at Junior’s, owners Nick Hufft and Lon Marchand found a way to pivot. Their dining room became a staging ground for pickup orders, and windows opening out onto the sidewalk served as take-out friendly hand-off portals.

Italian Inspiration Simple, refreshing and (maybe) healthy by Tim McNally


and Sicilian heritage, such as New Orleans, the Garibaldi cocktail, like its namesake, is relatively unknown. Which is a shame because the cocktail is easy to make and has a valid background for its existence. One of the founders of the modern Italian state, Giuseppe Garibaldi, is not the first name in Italian history usually associated with adult beverages. Campari is pretty close to the top of that list, and that spirit is one of just two ingredients used to make a Garibaldi cocktail. The cocktail’s name is derived because Garibaldi’s trademark uniform was a red shirt. Same color as the cocktail. Bit of a stretch, but as good a name for this drink as any. Garibaldi’s life was a geographic and mission mess. Born in France, he fought in South America, wreaked havoc against the Austrians, and his governmental assistance was rejected by the Catholic Church from none other than Pope Pius IX. Military rejection also came from the king of Piedmont-Sardinia, Charles Albert. Finally, Garibaldi found life-success in 1860 with the “Expedition of the Thousand,” resulting in the annexation of the territory of Sicily. He is considered one of the “Fathers of Italian Unification.” All of which has nothing to do with the cocktail, except the color of Garibaldi’s freedom fighting troops’ shirts. But the drink is too good and too simple in its construction to pass by. So don’t; pass it by that is. Oh, and be certain to use fresh-squeezed orange juice. Makes all the difference.


Garibaldi Cocktail 1 1/2 ounces Campari 4 ounces freshsqueezed orange juice Garnish: orange wedge Build the Campari and orange juice in a small highball glass filled with ice. Stir and garnish with the orange wedge.

mproving wellness is a growing focus in medicine.

In addition to helping one’s self, there are also ways to help others — improving wellness for an older loved one by helping them get the care they need, whether at home or from a residential facility, can be helpful for all members of the family. Looking and feeling better go hand in hand when it comes to wellness. Find ways to improve your overall health today and look forward to a brighter tomorrow. BLUE CROSS AND BLUE SHIELD OF LOUISIANA

5 Worst Calamities in New Orleans History AT THIS POINT THE PANDEMIC IS STILL A CURRENT,

live tragedy, but before passing judgment we’ll wait until the incident is buffered by time. Besides, it is not just local, but global. Focusing instead on the regional disasters, here’s my list in ascending order, to date, of the worst. 5. RECONSTRUCTION. It could have been worse. We could have been Atlanta. That New Orleans was spared the torch may have been because the city surrendered easily. Nevertheless, the period from 1862 to 1877, when Reconstruction ended, was one of political upheaval and violence, frequently under the direction of rogues and thugs. The state’s agriculture economy was in ruins. New Orleans may have slipped badly in comparison to other cities, except that the rest of the South was equally unstable. (One good result: The Union won. Had it not, New Orleans would have likely been the capital of a small weakened nation subject to subsequent conquering and denied the largesse of United States support and funding.)   4. HURRICANE BETSY. After pushing across the Bahamas and a swath of Florida, Betsy entered the gulf and then turned toward the mouth of the Mississippi crushing Grand Isle and then leveling destruction, as a Category 3 hurricane, on eastern New Orleans, Gentilly and St. Bernard parish. The 1965 hurricane was, at the time, the costliest hurricane ever and came to be known as “Billion Dollar Betsy.” In its second landfall, the storm flooded approximately 164,000 homes. There were 76 fatalities. The rest of New Orleans was left able to operate. As a result of the storm, the Corps of Engineers started its Hurricane Protection Program and began rebuilding levees in New Orleans that were to be higher and stronger, though ultimately not strong enough.   6 4 JUNE 2020


3. THE GREAT FIRES. Only six years apart,

1. PESTILENCE. Katrina was terrible, but if

these two fires combined leveled most of the French Quarter, which at the time comprised most of the existing city. The Easter week fire in 1788 destroyed over 800 houses and public buildings within hours. (Spanish Governor Esteban Miro wrote to authorities about the “abject misery, crying and sobbing” of the people.) Then in 1794, with rebuilding still on the way from the previous fire, another blaze leveled 212 Vieux Carré buildings, many more valuable than those lost in the previous fire. That year, the city had also suffered through two hurricanes. Building techniques (more reliance on bricks instead of cypress) would change. The city was rebuilt, but began to look different.   2. HURRICANE KATRINA. We know the story, and it continues. New Orleans’ history, Part II, from then on would be marked as beginning on August 29, 2005. Though we suspect that now there will be a Part III dated March 2020.  

you can read this at least you know the storm did not kill you. During the frequent outbreaks of infectious diseases, a person could be healthy one day and stricken the next. In 1804, Louisiana’s first territorial governor, William V.C. Claiborne lost his wife, daughter, private secretary and co-workers to the yellow fever. Smallpox was the worst. During the 20-year period from 1863 to 1882 there were, according to state estimates, 6,450 deaths due to the disease just in New Orleans. The era of infectious disease outbreaks lasted until 1914. Finally, in that year, a hospital specializing in smallpox cases was closed for lack of business. Life in New Orleans seemed more secure. Between challenges, people could enjoy the good times again. May the good times return, and may the celebrating be done during a hurricanefree summer.
