Poppy Tooker on the Carnival breakfast of champions 

"This is the one city in America where breakfast drinking is totally socially acceptable."

New Orleans food guru and Louisiana Eats! radio host Poppy Tooker, talking with National Public Radio about her "Carnival breakfast of champions: deviled eggs and milk punch." NPR reported, "She says that this combination is precisely how many New Orleanians fortify themselves as they line up along the parade route. It fulfills three of the key criteria of any good Mardi Gras meal: It's portable, it can be eaten without silverware and, well, it contains alcohol — your choice of bourbon or brandy."
