A small place with lots of information including sections of different historical food items. Food by states including Georgia, LA, Mississippi etc. I enjoyed the area for cocktails and alcohol (though not a drinker) including all sorts of bourbons and cocktail glasses. Even goo goo clusters were represented in the food section! We happened to be there at a time... 更多
This museum has tributes to individual southern states and their specialities. Included are an Absinthe Bar collection, a tribute to Al Copeland (Popeye's), a Martini Bar wall, exhibit from Tujague's Restaurant, and much, much more. They have a small gift area (where they really need to sell pralines!).
I stopped at this museum when I was riding the St. Charles Ave. streetcar. The museum is a good walk from the streetcar stop. I walked down MLK and back to the stop a couple streets over.

You do receive recipe cards and that does help so you can follow along. The finished product, jambalaya, was very fresh & tasty.
Small museum that has given new life to what used to be a large local produce and meat market. An interesting exhibit on the history of the cocktail and the history of absinthe with a display of old bottles and sugar trowels (?). There is also a cooking school and restaurant located there (both closed on Sunday).
We visited the museum today. It is located in Central City in Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. which appears to be an area that is being reborn in the city. The area has some very cool shops and right next to a restaurant called Purloo is the Southern Food and Beverage Museum. This is an inexpensive museum that you can walk... 更多
