American Food

NEW ORLEANS: Muffuletta
The influence of Italian cooks on Creole food is tremendous. Witness the muffuletta, a sandwich invented at the Central Grocery in 1906 when the French Quarter was still known to many as the city's Little Italy. Named for the round loaf of bread in which it is constructed, the Muff is layers of capacollo and salami with Provolone, all topped with a pickly, peppery, garlicky chopped-olive salad. Usually one sandwich is enough for two hearty appetites. Thankfully, Central Grocery weathered Katrina and continues to sell them wrapped and ready to carry out to an alfresco bench in Jackson Square.
