Have you ever visited New Orleans? If so, how about during Mardi Gras? I agree it is an awesome experience but a little crazy! You don’t have to be physically in NOLA to take part in the festivities. Host your own Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras themed party with flashy decor, king cake and of course great cajun eats! Anytime you entertain, the less mess the better; that is why I am obsessed with one dish meals. The Staub 5.5 Quart Cocotte is great for making large batches for big groups of people, all with little cleanup. The Staub dutch oven is the best piece of cookware I own. I am just in love with the cherry red color. Red isn’t your color? No worries- they come in a ton of colors, shapes, and sizes. The Staub 5.5 Quart Cocotte is great for stove stop sautéing and stewing and then finishing up in the oven. To celebrate Mardi Gras in our house, I will be making a big old Staub pot of Jambalaya. It is super easy and sure to please your entire party. Check out the simple recipe below!
