NOLA’s BACKYARD – Houmas House

Fourth Post

Houmas House Plantation
The cottages of the sugar barons at Houmas House Plantation served as our home for the next two evenings. The Plantation is located alongside the big bend in the Mississippi River on 38 acres of gardens, ponds and majestic live oaks.

The Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board sponsored a Plantation Seafood dinner.  The issue here is trying to shoot the food before it is consumed.  For this group food is their passion, so I quickly make a circle documenting the different dishes and then work back through the group a second and third time.

We ended our evening trying not to watch the political debates going on in the Turtle Bar … no one wanted to spoil the warm feelings that the shared experiences with both food and friendship had created.
