Product Description

Review

"Food, music, and New Orleans are all passions about which-it seems to me-all reasonable people of substance should be vocal. . . . This book gives voice to the characters, real and imaginary, whose love and deep attachments to a great but deeply wounded city should be immediately understandable with one bite." - Anthony Bourdain

Lolis Eric Elie is a New Orleans-based journalist, filmmaker and food writer. He joined the staff of the HBO series Treme as story editor shortly after the series launched. Working with the award-winning director Dawn Logsdon, he co-produced and wrote the documentary, Faubourg Treme: the Untold Story of Black New Orleans. From 1995 to 2009, he wrote a thrice-weekly column for the New Orleans' Times-Picayune. A recognised expert on New Orleans food and culture, he is the author of Smokestack Lightning: Adventures in the Heart of Barbecue Country and co-producer and writer of a documentary based on that book.

This is a cookbook with a difference - as well as pages of enticing recipes this book gives a great insight into all that is this unique place! Makes you want to jump on the next plane to NO and savour all the delights it has to offer! I literally could not put this book down the first night I got it. Look forward to working my way through these tasty pages of pure indulgence. Us Europeans could learn alot from worshipping a Bible like this :) Highly Recommended! Well done Mr. Elie. Look forward to more from you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fried Chicken, Gumbo and More! 21 Aug. 2013
By Charles Henderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
First, I must confess that Mr. Elie has been a very dear friend for over 30 years, so this review is not without its biases. Second, I must also confess that he is one of the best cooks I know personally, and has chosen recipes for this cookbook that will satisfy the most demanding palates.

I have not only read the book and enjoyed it tremendously, but was also in New Orleans to taste the Korean chicken dish created by Chef Jackie (Jacqueline Blanchard, Executive Sous Chef at Restaurant August). Oops! I'm not sure I was supposed to give that secret away. Well, if you purchase the book and read it you will be given the impression that the recipes were created by the characters. But the truth is, the recipes are all from world class chefs like Chef Jackie in N.O., and people who have set the standard for New Orleans cuisine in their home kitchens. This really was the best chicken I have ever had in my entire life and was so light and crispy it could have flew off of plate and taken flight into fried chicken heaven. What a treat that was.

Another inside secret I will share is that Lolis got the Gumbo recipe from his mother. I hope he doesn't read this review, but I just couldn't keep that one to myself. I had the opportunity to have his mother's Gumbo just last month and what an experience that was. She is a living Gumbo legend!

So that's a bit of the inside scoop on the cook book. Bottom line is you can't go wrong for the recipes, and if you enjoy a good read, you will enjoy this one.

So now the pitch for my friend Lolis, which includes my bias. Buy a book for yourself and ten more as Christmas gifts. It may not be the best thing if you have a heart condition, but it will most certainly increase the happiness quotient of us mere Earthlings!

5.0 out of 5 stars this is what I like about the series 16 Jan. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The history, food, and music are what draw me to New Orleans. This covers two of the topics in a well executed manner. This is one of the books that sits out, not buried in the shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great writing, great pictures, great recipes 2 Oct. 2013
By Leather1905 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What a great book and cookbook. Fun to read, fun to leaf through and an opportunity to go "back of the house" in many of New Orleans' best restaurants. We own many cookbooks and love New Orleans and its culinary scene. This book captures so much of the culture, history and cooking techniques that keep New Orleans unique among all American cities. This is a wonderful book to own, to use, to learn from and to gift to others. A real gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked the show you will like the book. 25 Nov. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I loved the show and all the characters. The book is like it was written by Chef Desautel. I really liked how it took recipes from everyone. I loved New Orleans when we were there last March. The recipes are good as well and the family liked them which made this book a double pleaser.
