The Hungry Nomad: Café du Monde (New Orleans)

November 20, 2010

Café du Monde (New Orleans)

You can't come to New Orleans and not make a trip to Café du Monde in the French Quarter. It is a New Orleans tradition. Located on Decatur street Café du Monde serves only one thing: Beignets: a French pâte à choux pastry (think of the pastry part of an eclair ), fried, with a crunchy outside and a soft, tender inside.  I like to think of it as a french name for a doughnut. Although anything french just tastes better. And this is no exception: the doughnut has nothing on a french beignet soaked in powdered sugar. They come in a serving of 3-6 and go best with a cup of café au lait, hot chocolate or coffee. I personally like to dip my beignets in the café du lait.  Also- for your convenience and due to popularity this café is open 24/7. Enjoy.

Does anyone know the story behind how this deliciouse treat came to be named a beignet?

I believe it is Cafe Au Lait instead of Du Lait, a common error. Best stuff on earth though.
