"My momma made me and my sister and brother Yaka meat as a kid — it's a standard New Orleans dish. It's more than just comforting, though. Honey, it cures any hangover or any type of overindulgence you get into down here — and you will overindulge in my city! It's the perfect dish for your post Mardi Gras blues."
