Eating and cooking well are not just industries but ways of life for all New Orleans. Writer and photographer Elsa Hahne (Art Director at OffBeat) has visited the kitchens of 33 ofNew Orleans’s home cooks and raconteurs and has served up an expansive smorgasbord inspired by this vibrant city’s love affair with food.
Almost every cultural group that has made its mark on New Orleans is represented in these pages: Creole, African American, Native American, German, Cajun, Italian, Irish, Greek, Hungarian, Croatian, Cuban, Honduran, Mexican, Indian, Filipino, Chinese, Vietnamese, and more.
Among the eighty-five recipes are not only such classic New Orleans dishes as red beans and rice, catfish court bouillon, crawfish bisque, file gumbo, grillades, and daube glace, but also more recent arrivals to local tables: yakamein, pork tamales, crawfish samosas, and Vietnamese spring rolls.
