Affectionately known as "The Big Easy" the city of New Orleans is world renowned for its music, architecture, night-life and of course its Creole cuisine. A deeply unique metropolis in the United States, this colorful port city has been influenced by its location along the Mississippi River and has a complex history. Influences from France, Spain, Africa, Germany, Italy, Canada and Native Americans have developed a cuisine rich in sauces, spice, seafood and food from the land and even the surrounding wet lands. Arguably the most important contributor to American cuisine, NOLA is home to classics including Gumbo, Oysters Rockefeller, Po' Boys, Muffulettas, Etouffee, Bananas Foster, Jambalaya and many more.
