Pain Perdu ( lost bread ) is what we call French Toast here in New Orleans.
Ponchatoula Strawberries are some of the sweetest berries on the planet. They are in season from late November until late April. We cook them into a compote with just some lemon juice and zest, a little Acadiana honey, and some vanilla.
The Pain Perdu is made with french bread, eggs & milk, grated orange rind, orange juice and a couple of splashes of orange liqueur.
