Lisa Brown says don’t cook. I comply.


Nola Studiola: What would be your ideal meal to eat on a wide, deteriorating balcony overlooking misshapen live oak branches, in the middle of a hot New Orleans summertime? What time of day would you suggest partaking of this meal? (It’s low 70’s in the morning and high 90’s by afternoon.)

Honestly, I’m a heat wimp. I might not be able to eat a thing in that weather. So just get me some chicory-iced coffee in the morning, some homemade lemon sorbet for elevenses, and the rest of the afternoon into the evening let me partake of mint juleps.
