What's Cooking In New Orleans? Culinary Traditions of the Crescent City 

If not on the table, food is always on New Orleanians' minds. And now it's on the walls, under glass and on screen as well. The Historic New Orleans Collection follows up on its popular 2005 exhibition A Dollop of History in Every Bite with What's Cooking in New Orleans? Culinary Traditions of the Crescent City. The new show includes cookbooks, menus, photos and other objects from the 18th century up to the present. Exhibits explore the way food contributes to local culture and the character of the city (The French Market circa 1920 pictured). The documentaries We Live to Eat: A History of New Orleans' Culinary Obsession and A Common Pot, Creole Cooking on the Cane River by local filmmaker Kevin McCaffrey are included in the exhibition. A daylong symposium entitled Food For Thought is scheduled on Saturday, Jan. 20. Registration is required. Free admission for exhibition. Symposium tickets $60 adults, $40 students. -- Will Coviello
