Mardi Gras: This week on Sharp and Hot Emily reads from what she calls "My father's bible," which we find out is Paul Perdone's Louisiana Cooking. After laughing at the cover of the cook book for a moment, Emily dives in to her streamlined recipe for jambalaya and how to make it vegetarian. She and Anne discuss king cakes, oysters, and some of the more ridiculous things you can find in New Orleans, including alcoholic slushy stands. This program was sponsored by Cain Vineyard and Winery .

"Every Bacchanalia you can think of is happening, and you're really kinda drunk on sugary alcohol
[On New Years Eve on Bourbon street] ." [23:30]
