Tom Fitzmorris, former editor of New Orleans magazine, knows New Orleans food. His favorite foods are those he grew up eating: Creole and Cajun. In other words, New Orleans food. Addressing the “everlasting Creole-versus-Cajun matter,” the book gathers all the city's greatest dishes within its covers. Let the good times roll.
from the publisher
Tom Fitzmorris is uniquely qualified to write about the food of New Orleans. Born in the Crescent City on Mardi Gras, he has been eating, celebrating, and writing about the city’s cuisine for more than 30 years.
Now Fitzmorris is refreshing his bestselling cookbook New Orleans Food. The book features all of the favorite recipes, steeped in the town’s Creole and Cajun traditions, but is updated to include a 16-page color insert with gorgeous food photography and an updated introduction. From small plates (Shrimp Rémoulade with Two Sauces) to main courses (Redfish Herbsaint, Creole Lamb Shanks) to desserts and drinks (Bananas Foster, Beignets, and Café au Lait), these dishes are elegant and casual, traditional, and evolved.
