The tradition of a bride and groom serving cake to one another is meant to symbolize their commitment to provide for one another through their life. What a beautiful backdrop Degas House provides the couple for this tradition in the Degas House parlor! (Jason Cohen Photography)

Mardi Gras beads are not just for throwing! The ladies in these photos are event coordinators and event planners who came to Degas House to make these beautiful murals using Mardi Gras beads. Some of the ladies were from the Biltmore Estate. Recently, Frommers awarded Degas House and the Biltmore Estate “Best of Weddings” in the respective states. The New Orleans CVB was wise enough to put us together.

Degas House agrees that New Orleans tourism is soaring, despite the dire predictions after Katrina. Our bed and breakfast is enjoyed by many who come to experience New Orleans and then find that what they experience at Degas House is one of the best parts of their travels.  #neworleans #tourism

A favorite topic around the Degas House breakfast table is the food in New Orleans – so many good choices and so many good restaurants. “The search for America’s best food cities:  New Orleans” by Tom Seitsema. #neworleans #seafood #washingtonpost #tomseitsema
Washington Post restaurant critic Tom Sietsema grabs a go-cup and continues his tour of America's dining capitals in the Big Easy, a small city with large appetites and a joie de vivre that carries over to the lunch counters and dinner tables.

5-Star Review of Degas House on iloveinns.com: “Never thought about booking one place [Degas House] for my college friends to reunite. What an awesome idea for a Secret Escape in New Orleans, while stepping into the life of Edgar Degas and exploring the history of the 18 paintings done while visiting his family in 1872/1873. Who knew that the price of a room would include a gourmet creole breakfast each morning for all of us, a welcome drink for our group, a small refrigerator in each room with some bottle water and sodas, not to mention the Port/Sherry in each room. On top of that we were treated to a wonderful guide tour by Jonie, a great grand niece of the Degas Family. Beautiful Oak Trees line the street in a canopy and the staff turn us on to Cafe Degas with 15% off coupon, City Park for a little Golf (via Putt Putt for kids or for the guys Golf under century old Oak Trees) just blocks away in one direction and the French Quarter about 11 blocks in the other direction. Bus Stop right in front of Degas House. Thank you goes to an awesome staff, from housekeeper, to innkeeper to breakfast staff. We will return and recommend this Century Old Inn [Degas House] for its historical, yet family friendly atmosphere.”

Bananas Foster French Toast continues to be a favorite breakfast item among our guests. But when was it created and who first created it – and why? Bananas Foster was created in 1951 by Paul Blangé at Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans. At that time, New Orleans was a major hub for importing bananas from South America. The dish was named for Richard Foster, the chairman of the New Orleans Crime Commission and a friend of Owen Brennan, the owner of Brennan’s Restaurant. Bananas Foster French Toast is a great way to begin your day at Degas House, just prior to the Edgar Degas House Creole Impressionist Tour. #bananasfoster #neworleans #brennansrestaurant  http://www.degashouse.com/tour-reservation/breakfast-and-tour.htm

The original Degas House mansion was cut into two during the 1920's and one side was moved twenty feet over, creating a lovely courtyard which fans out in the rear behind both houses, providing space for dancing and food. What a beautiful and unique space for wedding receptions and special events of all kinds!

Hungry for waffles anyone? Yesterday was #NationalWaffleDay and since Belgium Waffles are one of the most favorite breakfast items enjoyed by Degas House guests (made from scratch), we wanted to recognize some things about the waffle.  Waffles have been around since the middle ages, but the first waffle recipe was discovered in the 14th century. Belgian waffles, invented in 1839, were first known as Brussels Waffles. Waffles exist all over the world and incorporate what ingredients are available in their respective regions. National Waffle Day, August 24th, is a celebration of when the first waffle iron was officially patented in 1869.

Worth the money - Degas was the only Impressionist to visit America, and this is the only house he stayed/lived in that is open to the public. A comprehensive tour of the house (split in 2 at some point after Degas's visit), with an informative video to start, is led by none other than one of Degas's grand-nieces. A wealth of information, not only about Degas, but also the area during the 1870s and the Impressionist movement in France, is offered to the visitor. The art lover and the historian will be both pleased by this visit.

Simply put, this is the most interesting tour attraction in New Orleans. It is an engaging, educational experience that actually showcases some of the city's genuine cultural value, unlike the more famous haunted house tours which are essentially just a bunch of hocus pocus. Highly recommend this one!
