I have a massive crush on Andy Bates cooking and he once made ‘po’ boys’ which are a Louisiana sandwich traditionally made with oysters or prawns for the ‘poor boys’ that worked the street cars. There are many varieties and I’m adding mine to the hall of fame. I must tell you that the photographer and food stylist devoured these once the shoot was done, and they were still gushing compliments a few days later.
