Frozen Custard in New Orleans anymore?
I have been having the biggest craving for Frozen Custard, and have no idea if there are any places left that make it here. I remember the West Bank place on Lapalco pre-Katrina, but it closed years ago. Anyone have any ideas?
That would have been Chelsey's- a creation of the late & great Warren LeRuth. Place
was named for his grand-daughter. It was like going to a culinary science fair - you
never knew what he would think of for a special.
Culinary trivia - everytime you use a nonseparating salad dressing or eat @ Outback,
or Poyeyes, you are eating something that Warren created.
re: savory south
That is indeed the place, and I remember reading an extensive article about him and his contributions to the food world. The special flavors were amazing, especially the egg nog and pumpkin pie and black cherry. A few places on this side of the river carried his products, including a place on Jackson Square and I believe the Diamond Street Market.
I have found a few custard stands in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area, but nothing closer. Too bad, there is really nothing like the density and texture of freshly extruded frozen custard.
