The 25th Annual Essence Festival in New Orleans is over and it was one for the record books. From new experiences like our slay worthy Fashion House and our forever First Lady Michelle Obama blessing us at the Superdome, to the city being filled wall-to-wall with #BlackGirlMagic and #BlackBoyJoy, if you weren’t in NOLA this weekend, sorry but you missed out! For real though.
However, you can still bring a slighter of that New Orleans magic home with you. Food in the city will have you wishing you packed your fat pants. It’s really that good. Beignets, po’boys, and hurricanes are a must when you’re in town, and now you can enjoy them from the comfort of your home.
We’ve rounded up a few fun recipes for New Orleans classics that will fill your belly with deliciousness and your mind with fond memories of all the fun you had this past weekend in NOLA for the 25th annual Essence Festival. Enjoy!
