The Iceman’s Worldly Noshes
Just a couple of days ago, my fiance and I got back from an eleven day trip to Florida's Emerald Coast, New Orleans, and the western Caribbean via a Carnival cruise which included stops in Jamaica and Grand Cayman. As usual the noshes were plentiful and delicious and included an international flare as well. Here are numerous photos from our journey of a lifetime to tell the story of a tremendous culinary experience. Above is the John G Po Boy from Mother's, a legendary establishment in the 'Crescent City' of New Orleans, which has been serving some of the best cajun food since 1938. Their Po Boy was the best I've ever had, and included ham, turkey, roast beef and debris, which is their famous gravy.
Here is a trio of New Orleans' best from Mother's which included Jerry's Jambalaya, Red Beans and Rice and Crawfish Etouffee.
No trip to New Orleans is complete without a visit to Cafe Du Monde to try their delicious beignets.
Cruises are known for having spectacular food, and this one did not disappoint. Here is a sea day brunch meal including filet mignon and eggs.
Here was an interesting creation, french toast covered with Cheerios. Must admit, it was pretty tasty.
The surf n turf which included a Maine lobster tail, shrimp and prime rib was out of this world!
I am a big fan of Creme Brulee, and this was scrumptious.
This is Sticky Toffee Pudding, I highly recommend that every one tries it at some time in their lives, it was heavenly.
How about some Macaroni and cheese with steak and bacon? This was creative and damn good too.
Jamaica is known for their Jerk Chicken. We had some while visiting Montego Bay last week along with their Festival which is a fried potato. Both were out of this world 'mon!'
Our trip was magical and full of unique experiences that included meeting some wonderful people such as our cab driver Gladstone in Jamaica and our new cruising buddies Joe and Monica from Fresno, CA. As usual, the noshes were extraordinary, stay tuned for more food reviews and pics from my next trip.
