Dr Nicole Caridad Ralston, @Eatenpathnola

Dr Nicole Caridad Ralston runs a highly popular instagram account dedicated to sharing the amazing food all over New Orleans as well as important food history moments. She started blogging and writing about food when she moved to New Orleans in 2012. Dr Caridad was convinced to start her Instagram after a (then) Xavier University student, Eliqua, interviewed her because she loved the food Tumblr (also called Off the Eaten Path NOLA).  

"New Orleans is bound to sink into your soul and belly, and I'm here to help you navigate our food scene! I believe that New Orleans has the greatest food in the country (yup, I said it). We have a rich food history that began with the indigenous people who thrived in the Crescent City before Bienville even stumbled upon us and then got mixed with the cultural traditions of Africans, Creoles, Cajuns, France, and Spain to create our current food scene. New Orleans is also known as the Northernmost point of the Caribbean and as a Cuban-American, I can attest to the similarities. " - Dr Nicole Caridad Ralston
