Lots of New Orleans musicians can handle a whisk as well as any other instrument they've mastered, and here's a series at the French Market that celebrates these multi-talented folks. One Friday a month, Elsa Hahne, Offbeat magazine writer and author of You Are Where You Eat: Stories and Recipes from the Neighborhoods of New Orleans and The Gravy: In the Kitchen with New Orleans Musicians, is joined on the Farmers Market stage by a local musician for conversation and cuisine. See what they cook up at 1 pm. The French Market is just beyond Café du Monde in the Esplanade Avenue direction. frenchmarket.org.
