This week’s Culinary Crossroads takes us to the historic Columns Hotel on St. Charles Avenue for a Bloody Mary with enough kick to haul anyone from the brink of death firmly back to the side of the living.
Along the way, we’ll also visit Cree McCree, a local costume designer, for a lesson in her signature style: Halloween Cocktail Couture. Her best tip for self-fashioning costumers? "Don't wait until the last minute, and keep it simple! A Halloween costume doesn't need to be elaborage. The main thing is that it transforms you, that you feel transformed when you walk out the door."
Take a look at some of this season's Cree-ations!
