In New Orleans the lazy Sunday brunch is an institution, jazz the background music for the entire city, and the pleasures of the table indulged in in a lusty, almost Mediterranean way.

Brunch often features egg dishes, rich with butter, spicy sauces, seafood or cured meat, artichoke hearts and other vegetables. These dishes are always richly flavoured, with tastes that echo the region’s ethnic heritage: French, Spanish, Afro-Caribbean, Indian, contemporary American.
