The Beignet and New Orleans

Yeah, go ahead and lick your lips… I’ll wait…

I am sure at some point during your #NARdiGras visit you are going to hear about this delectable treat called the Beignet (pronounced /bɛnˈjeɪ/ in English). It has French roots, but is synonymous with our host city, New Orleans. Not to mention the fact that they are also the official state doughnut of the State of Louisiana!

In France, beignet is an umbrella term for a large variety of pastries made from deep-fried dough with fruit filling. You will find these treats throughout the city but two of the more famous providers of this decadent dessert are Cafe du Monde and Cafe Beignet.

Remember to start each day at #NARdiGras off right with a Beignet!
