we had the pleasure of experiencing a treme dinner the other night at dayton’s rue dumaine. here was their menu:
- Ruth Fertel’s garlicky white shrimp remoulade
- Poppy Tooker’s crawfish calas with green garlic mayonnaise
- Cochon’s braised pig with stewed turnips and cabbage
- Bayona’s Cafe au lait pots de crème with mudslide cookies
treme cookbook author, lolis eric elie, was on hand to sign copies for purchase, and i was able to peek into our friend’s copy, and the page i turned to had chicken skin cracklings. enough said.
