The Super Bowl is in New Orleans this year: a city of lights, of tipsy streets, of slushees, of fried food and jambalaya and rice and lots of alcohol. Can you think of a better reason to throw a party this Sunday? The food of New Orleans lends itself perfectly to football-watching, so choose a gumbo, a jambalaya, an oyster preparation, and a spicy cocktail, and invite your friends. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
