“Pronounced (chop-ee-too-las) This wonderful recipe is from the Tchoupitoulas Plantation Restaurant operated from 1964 till 1991 in the oldest existing building in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana (circa 1790). Built by Jean-Baptiste Drouet as Cedar Grove Plantation. This is a tried and true recipe. It is fabulous all by itself, but it also makes an absolutely killer topping for ice cream or bread pudding.”
