When you think New Orleans food, you think French, Spanish, Creole, and African influences, but the fertile delta had others who influenced the food and culture, like the Italians and the Germans. On the corner of Canal Street and St. Charles there used to be Cobbs, a quintessential German place. It was always such a treat for me to ride the Algiers ferry across the Mississippi River to the foot of Canal Street and take the trolley there. Rotkohl (red cabbage) was a popular side dish, so here is one similar to Cobb's for you to enjoy. Taken from P. Allen Smith Cooking.
