September is a glorious month in Philadelphia. The deep blue cloudless sky and cool mornings are a welcome change from the dog days of summer.
I am not sure why chef Paul Martin came to Philadelphia, but I am sure glad he did. He brought tasty authentic Louisiana cooking to Queen Village-based Catahoula, Strangelove’s and now Mamou.
On a brutally hot July day two years ago, I brewed some iced tea and settled in to watch Anthony Bourdain tour the Hudson River Valley.
