International Food Bloggers Conference
Today was the final day of the conference. The final workshop was a panel on marketing.
- Pros in Practice: Where Marketers and Bloggers Converge
One of the best suggestions in regard to affiliate marketing was to go directly to the company we want to partner up with.
With the conference concluding, it was time to get a quick lunch before heading to the airport. I decided to try a place that was actually on the other side of the street from us: Cafe Beignet.
The Cafe Beignet I went to was in the Musical Legends Park.
The park is a tribute to the jazz musicians from the New Orleans area that have made a name for themselves. There are statues of famous musicians thought the park.
Cafe Beignet is set in back of the courtyard in the Musical Legends Park. There is additional seating upstairs, on top of the cafe.
Also in the park is a small stage, which hosts different musical groups throughout the day. I came at the right time, because I got to hear some great music.
After I ordered my lunch, I found a charming little nook to sit down and listen to some jazz.
Speaking of lunch, I was pleasantly surprised at the choices offered at Cafe Beignet. While they had the expected Beignets and Coffee, there was so much more. They had a full breakfast menu with a variety of omelets, waffles, and French toast.
In addition to this, they offered cocktails, sandwiches, and New Orleans specialties, such as the Crawfish Platter, Red Beans, Muffuletta, Po-Boy Sandwiches, Gumbo, and Jambalaya. I opted for the Jambalaya.
The Jambalaya was absolutely delicious. It was made a lot like a Dirty Rice (with ground liver and beef or pork), plus Chicken and Andouille Sausage traditionally seen in a Jambalaya.
Since this was my last meal in New Orleans, I had to get another order of Beignets.
This was a perfect light meal to end a fantastic food journey in the New Orleans.
