Southern Hospitality

Louisiana Loll

Todd Moore,
who calls himself a child of the South, is a born storyteller.  "Yes" he says slowly, pronouncing the word with two Louisiana-style syllables, "there is such a thing as Southern hospitality and courtesy.  That means we entertain differently.  We're more formal and love tables with both heirlooms and new ideas.  And we're more playful and frivolous than Northerners."  His table, "Louisiana Loll," expresses his belief that the South is a lot like Europe, "where everyone expects to spend entire evenings around the table." 

Moore's color inspiration came from cafe au lait, a gracious soft brown pecan shade, which he combined with cream and robin's-egg blue.
