Pick of the Week: Celery

Fresh celery is a beautiful vegetable to behold. Its vibrant green stalks radiate a scent that can be described as fresh and green. Not only is it one-third of the trinity we use in Louisiana cooking, but it is also antioxidant-rich and a natural anti-inflammatory. Add a little celery to your diet by juicing it or adding it to salads. Find it at market by visiting Tuesday and Saturday vendors Shirley Randon and Timmy Perilloux.

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special

Café Hope has outdone themselves with this Tuesday’s menu! We cannot wait to try the oyster and tomato soup, the sweet potato biscuit and pork belly slider and the strawberry & beet salad. Bring your appetite Tuesday, and finish it all off with their sweet-sounding fresh strawberry tart! Yum!
