Beignets and Coffee

October 23, 2011

It’s 56 F and breezy outside. I’m having a cup of community coffee with beignets to warm up. If you don’t know these little guys, they’re like French donughts with powdered sugar. Once you have them, you’ll be hooked.

Traditional Beignets at Beck's Cajun Cafe

If you don’t know, a beignet (pronounced [bε.ɲε], is a traditional New Orleans pastry made from deep-fried dough and sprinkled with confectioner’s sugar. Think of it as a kind of French doughnut. It’s also a little similar to an Italian Zeppole or a German spritzkuchen.

Or, if you’re looking for something hearty and filling, try our Brie Omelet topped W/ Shrimp and Crawfish Etouffée. Etoufeé is another Cajun favorite, and literally means “stuffed” or “smothered”. The main ingredient of étouffée is crawfish, shrimp, or crabmeat, seasoned with white pepper, cayenne pepper and garlic.

See you Sunday!
