While planning my New Orleans-themed Fat Tuesday dinner -  pulled-pork Po' Boys, jambalaya, and bananas foster for desert – I was trying to think of New Orleans-themed books.  I remembered Zeitoun, the true story of a Muslim-American family’s experience after Hurricane Katrina.  Confession:  I didn’t finish reading this book, as I started reading something juicier.  However, it must be controversial, because my friend, a very quiet, reserved young woman, called me on the way home from book discussion to tell me she almost came to blows with a

70 year-old man over part of the book.  Obviously, now I have to reread the book. 


For your own Mardi Gras celebration, I’ve included a video recipe for king cake:
