A family spread for a New Orleans Thanksgiving

No one does Thanksgiving like Louisiana. It starts with the familiar framework - turkey, pie, bourbon, family politics. But to that we add so much from our own culture, our unabating obsession with the table. Because this is 2020 though, even this feast will be different.

Ian covers food culture and dining in New Orleans through his weekly commentary series Where Y’Eat.
