A city drenched in sugar

That can only be New Orleans! Earlier this week, The New York Times ran this mouth-watering article on New Orleans' city sweets:

There's even a mention of St. Joseph Altars:

St. Joseph, the patron saint of Sicily, is also the patron saint of confectioners, and St. Joseph’s Day, March 19, is a citywide holiday here, with home altars holding sweets like Mr. Brocato’s cucidati, fig cookies sprinkled with rainbow nonpareils, and biscotti regina, coated with sesame seeds.

Now we're all hungry!
