What could be more pleasurable than a three day jaunt in one of the loveliest places in America: New Orleans. It was there that my fellow Chowzters and I nominated numerous ‘Best of Foods’ in North America and handed out awards to chief Chowzters responsible for its nomination.
So firstly, what is Chowzters? In a nutshell… this:
“Chowzter is a global network of the world’s most celebrated food experts and writers, all searching for the tastiest Fast Feasts on the planet. Prepared by passionate and inspired artisans, Fast Feasts are locally sourced, freshly prepared, served hot on the spot and enjoyed immediately. The best of these Fast Feasts reflect the local culture, history and traditions of their cities and countries of origin.
These unique discoveries are highly curated and undergo a rigorous local and international process. They are featured on our web site and App (Android and Apple versions available) and are celebrated at Chowzter regional and global award ceremonies.”
As a fellow Expert Chowzter, I curate the best eats in the Niagara region (Niagara on the Lake, Niagara falls and surrounding areas, St. Catherines). If you want to read my recommendations, visit their website. http://www.chowzter.com/fast-feasts/north-america/Niagara
I won’t write much more– I’ll let the sumptuous photos do the talking– but truly– this was quite a surreal experience. One I am grateful for. From the moment the plane landed, I don’t believe an hour went by where I wasn’t eating something divine. It was a pleasure to meet my fellow Expert Chowzters and talk to them about food. Their vivacious spirit and curiosity to seek the finest eats made me feel as if I were home. If we weren’t talking about what we were currently devouring– we would fantasize about the next thing we wanted to eat. I honestly don’t know how I fit all that food into my stomach.
One more thing. I forgot to bring my DSLR so I had to bring my old samsung phone from the dark ages. Apologies for the blurry photos! I’ll be sure to up my snapping game in my next posts! Pinky swear. 🙂
p.s. these are all photos for Day 1.
Day 2 and 3 to follow.
