This year the American Cancer Society’s Belles & Beaus Ball featured 4 Bravo Top Chefs Betty Fraser, Ed Cotton, Grayson Schmitz and Tracey Bloom, Food Network Chef Manouschka Guerrier, and local Chef Gason Nelson. As always, it was a fun weekend that started with dinner at Ste. Marie Brasserie.

Dreaming of Beignets
This week, I am on an all fruit and veggie diet (first time ever) and all I can think of is beignets. I took this picture 2 weeks ago after a long walk though the French Quarter, so I deserved to enjoy these warm, fluffy, pillow-shapped donut topped with powder sugar… I cannot wait to go back to Cafe du Monde and devour an order or two!
