Protect Your Bubble Offers Food Suggestions for Anyone Traveling to New Orleans for Mardi Gras

ATLANTA, Ga., Feb 04, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- One of the greatest things about New Orleans is the cuisine. Food in New Orleans is a way of life and steeped in rich, cultural history. Protect You Bubble, travel protection brand, takes a look at three must-try dishes for anyone traveling to New Orleans.

THE BEIGNETS - The word is pronounced 'ben-YAY' and they are a staple of New Orleans cooking. Brought to the city by the French settlers from French Quebec, the deep fried fritter is a square of dough, fried and covered with powdered sugar. Beignets are sold at the Café Du Monde (café of the world) in any of its eight locations, but for the true experience, go to the French Market. Since 1862, beignets have been cooked and served here 24 hours a day.

JAMBALAYA - Jambalaya was born out of necessity to feed large families with little ingredients and few cooking vessels. Depending on where you are in relation to New Orleans, jambalaya is meat: sausage, chicken or pork; vegetables: the trinity of green pepper, onion and celery, tomatoes, and rice. Cooked in a single pot for anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, jambalaya can be made to feed a family of four or four hundred.

SEAFOOD GUMBO - New Orleans sits on the mouth of the Mississippi River where it empties into the Gulf of Mexico. Seafood, therefore, is a staple of New Orleans cooking and like the jambalaya, gumbo was born out of necessity to feed large groups with little ingredients. Gumbo requires thickening agents in three distinct types: okra, file powder, ground sassafras leaves the settlers took from the Natives who lived there, or a roux (pronounced roo). A roux is nothing more than flour and fat, normally butter, cooked over medium heat and stirred constantly until the flour browns. The degree of brown, from a blonde to an almost burnt color, on the roux gives the gumbo its distinct flavor.
