Description: Crescent City Collection: A Taste of New Orleans presents culinary and historical traditions, lovingly passed down from generation to generation. 

Gene Bourg, former restaurant reviewer for the Times-Picayune, expresses our passion: "New Orleanians have their own scale of cultural values, but none is more deeply imbedded in the municipal psyche than food." 

Over 250 recipes from members of the Junior League of New Orleans, contributors, and over twenty-five famous local restaurants symbolize the continuously evolving cuisine. 

Standards such as Red Beans and Rice, Seafood Okra Gumbo, and Bananas Foster arc joined by dishes with new twists: Fried Crawfish Remoulade on the Half-Shell, Dixie Brisket, Shrimp Succotash, and Streetcar Strata. Lively culinary sidebars cover topics from Creole tomatoes to how to make a roux to recipes for popular New Orleans cocktails.  

Intertwined with the culinary offerings are fascinating narratives of JLNO Show Houses by Robert J. Cangclosi, Jr., A.I.A. 

Explore the architectural styles and anecdotal tales and enjoy photographer David G. Spielman's artistic views into some of the most elegant private homes in New Orleans. 

The rich, colorful heritage of the Crescent City is displayed in non-culinary sidebars. 

Did you know that Spanish moss is a member of the pineapple family, or that Carrollton was once a separate city?
