it's just a simple flag, but there are several million people to whom it is the biggest chunk of their identity.

to me, it means a place where freedom fries are still pommes frites.

Why needing identity... Why can't we just be "us" or "me" without bothering to belong to a state made by many men who declared it being France?
Or USA?
Why is geographic and national identity so important? I suppose it creates order somewhere in other's minds.
But it also creates chaos and wars... Why need enemies? Why need flags!

Dang! I was just reading Austin Leslie's Cookbook from Chez Helene and I didn't know that he passed on.

hey - new orleans is a great place for soul food. and the people there have the sense to realize that food can satisfy both the palate and the soul regardless of whether its origin is high-brow or low-brow. that's why [url=http://www.nytimes.com/2005/09/30/national/30LESLIE.html?ex=1285732800&en=554bcb2354961b49&ei=5090&partner=a-b&emc=rss]austin leslie[/url], whose claim to fame was the seemingly pedestrian craft of frying chicken, got a new york times obituary. and that's why the james beard foundation recognized [url=http://64.233.169.104/search?q=cache:vrjdus9VdxEJ:jamesbeard.org/about/press/pr/2005amclassics4.3+seaton%27s+scotch+house&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=11&gl=us&client=firefox-a]seaton's scotch house[/url] as being a "slice of american culinary history."

i think, though, to get the best pommes frites in new orleans you wind up high-brow. [url=http://www.antoines.com/menus_dinner.html#top]antoine's[/url] does them wonderfully.

eidea, you're an interesting soul. your posts make me think. and as best as i can tell, i like your outlook on life. i'd welcome the chance to share a plate of pommes frites with you. in france or in new orleans.

i'll pass, though, on the freedom fries.

heh?

my guess is that most purveyors of "freedom fries" serve insipid frozen potatoes, fried with no awareness of the potato's potential, and leave them to wilt ignominiously under a heat lamp.

when i think of pommes frites, i think of new orleans; people there understand them.
