Muriel’s Goat Cheese and Shrimp Crepes at IFBC NOLA

After finishing our delightful lunch at Commander’s Palace, Nancie MacDermott and I rushed back to the venerable Hotel Monteleone (the lobby was bustling even on a sweltering NOLA night in late August) in the French Quarter, to the opening sessions of the International Food Blogger’s Conference. Following a panel discussion, and a time of shared tips from extremely talented food photographer and stylist, Andrew Scrivani (take a look at his portfolio), we were treated to a reception showcasing the wines of Navarra, with treats from Muriel’s Restaurant. There were frittatta bites, and prosciutto wrapped asparagus served, certainly worthy complements for Spanish wine, but the standout treat of the reception for me was a home grown NOLA dish, the Shrimp and Goat Cheese Crêpes. Not much surprise there-3 things I love (crêpes, goat cheese and shrimp) in one dish! Chef Gus Martin, of Muriel’s (located in the heart of the French Quarter), kindly shared the recipe with me to post here. BTW, Chef Gus trained in the kitchen Commander’s Palace, under the watchful eye of Chef Paul Prudmhomme and Ms. Ella Brennan, like so many of New Orleans‘ chefs.
