Food in the Field gives a sneak peek into what CNN's team is eating as they travel the globe. Today's contributor, Kay Jones is a Senior Editorial Producer for CNN and five years ago when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, she spent five weeks there, coordinating news coverage. She has returned many times - most recently for coverage of the fifth anniversary of the storm that devastated the region.
Growing up with family in New Orleans, I learned to love Cajun spices early in life. So every time I get a chance to come to the Crescent City, I jump at the chance. Fortunately, I’ve been here quite a bit the past five years and have managed to eat some amazing meals during my time here.
My week started off Sunday when I went across Lake Pontchartrain to visit my aunt and uncle. We decided to hit Rip's on the Lake in Mandeville. They had a huge menu - much bigger than I remembered the last time I was there. I decided on the shrimp and grits off the brunch menu and was not disappointed. The shrimp was grilled to perfection with a few Cajun spices and the grits were creamy and delicious. My family had never had this dish before, and after telling them (more like forcing) to try it, they loved it.

The caviar and smoked salmon were superb, the chilled champagne flowed freely and the service was impeccable as Jake and Linda Richter gazed at each other across a table covered with white linen and set with fine china.
The only thing missing was the candlelight, but an open flame wouldn't have been encouraged in this dining room cruising at 550 miles per hour somewhere over the Pacific Ocean.
Sitting in first class on a recent Cathay Pacific flight from San Francisco, California, to Hong Kong, China, the Richters were dining in style.
The menu included stir-fried prawns and scallops accented with tangerine peel and jasmine rice; double-boiled ginseng and lean pork soup; and an extensive wine list.
"It was as if being in a restaurant," recalled Jake Richter, a U.S. businessman who lives on the Caribbean island of Bonaire. "They worked very hard on presentation. Everything was individually plated. ... It was fantastic."
