Why New Orleans? Featuring Joy the Baker

New Orleans is a one-of-a-kind city with a taste, attitude, and joy of life not found anywhere else. Chefs, artists, musicians, and business owners choose New Orleans for so many reasons. Some are born here and are shaped by the unique culture and the general obsession with food, flavor, and creativity, while others find their spirit drawn to the city and discover their most authentic self when they arrive.

Joy The Baker found her way to New Orleans and created a unique oasis including a blog, cookbooks, and even a private event space, The Bakehouse, where you can eat brunch, bake a cake decorated with Drake lyrics, host a private party, or learn how to make a Mardi Gras centerpiece.
