Michael and Michelle’s NOLA

Michael and fellow Miami chefs Michelle Bernstein and Peter Vauthy were invited by the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board to the Gulf with White House executive chef Criseta Comerford to explore food safety issues first-hand related to the BP oil spill.  If you haven’t seen the coverage we did for Eater’s Miami edition, please check out day one here and day two here, as well as Obamafoodorama here and our Flickr photo set here.

Before departing yesterday — on a 10:45 a.m. flight no less! — Michael and Michelle squeezed in a productive morning at two of New Orleans’ most famous food destinations: Cafe du Monde for chicory coffee & beignets and Central Grocery for Muffuletta.  Lucky me got to tag along to document and indulge!  Here are some stolen, classic moments on film.
