Valentines Day in Creole Country

Antique Letter EngravingValentine’s Day is a time to show our love and affection.  After showering me with cards and roses (I am a lucky girl), John made a reservation at a lovely restaurant in Baton Rouge ~ La Creole.  The atmosphere in the restaurant was charming ~ a pianist playing romantic tunes on a baby grand, with white coated waiters buzzing about the tables serving gourmet French Creole delicacies and pouring libations of all kinds!

Executive chef Ryan Andre (formally from the famous Commander’s Palace restaurant in New Orleans) created a special Creole Valentine’s menu for our pleasure, and everyone gladly savored his amazing offerings.  The scallops topped with tasso were melt-in-your-mouth delicious, the turtle soup was to die for (truly the best we’ve ever tasted), served with homemade biscuits.  I had sea bass and John had the grouper, both topped with Louisiana lump crabmeat.  For dessert we shared their house-made turtle cheesecake.  Yum!  I have made many cheesecakes in my life and this one deserves a special mention (I wish the chef would give me the recipe!).  The food was fantastic and the service was impeccable!

Our young and charming waiter, Jarek, made our dining experience memorable and fun, mixing professionalism with charm and a dose of humor ~ he even laughed at John’s jokes…

In Louisiana we truly have a passion for food and we enjoy food that inspires passion!
