In New Orleans, Loretta’s, one of the better makers of pralines, has pecan, coconut, chocolate, and rum flavors of pralines. At Aunt Sally’s in the French Market, her original product has a beautiful vanilla note and creamy texture. One can watch the manufacturing process in the window, or go in and take in the aroma.

One of the coolest rooms in the mansion. this space was designed to jut out from the roof and overlook the avenue. The Nanny took the children of the home here to safely watch the Mardi Gras parades.
