Nora's Food and Wine Experience

Last weekend I headed to the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience (NOWFE) with a friend of mine and fellow freelance food/booze writer, Amanda Westbrooks. She had a media pass to attend the two Grand Tastings that happened over the weekend: Friday night and Saturday afternoon. There was a lot going on, and my brain doesn't hang on to wine memories as much as beer, but let's take a look see at my pictures and see what we have.

BBQ & Pie

I am lying here on my couch completely satisfied by my dinner that I ate in the back courtyard of PJ's Coffee on Magazine (at Octavia.) Rob and Amy from NOLA Smokehouse were out and about again offering BBQ plates of either brisket burnt ends or pulled pork, which came with corn spoonbread (quite possibly my favorite thing they make) and remoulade potato salad. And homemade pickles. Oh! Those pickles.
