Description: Tom Fitzmorris is uniquely qualified to write about New Orleans food. Born in the Crescent City on Mardi Gras, he'd never been away from his favorite town for more than three weeks at a time -- that is, until Hurricane Katrina struck and Fitzmorris and his family were forced to evacuate.
Prior to the disaster, Fitzmorris was putting the final touches on his magnum opus: a collection of recipes for the very best of New Orleans food, gathered and developed over more than 30 years of eating and reporting in the Crescent City. In addition to his weekly restaurant review column, published continuously for 33 years, Fitzmorris is known for his radio program, The Food Show, aired every afternoon on WSMB.
With New Orleans Food, Fitzmorris presents more than 225 great New Orleans recipes designed for the home cook, all steeped in the Creole and Cajun traditions, yet updated to reflect contemporary tastes and ingredients. From small plates (Shrimp Remoulade with Two Sauces) to main courses (Redfish Herbsaint, Root Beer-Glazed Ham) to desserts and drinks (Bananas Foster, Beignets, and Cafe au Lait), these are dishes both elegant and casual, traditional and evolved. Whether you are nostalgic for the taste of New Orleans or simply love good food, New Orleans Food should find a place on your cookbook shelf. Now every Monday, everywhere, can be red-beans-and-rice day.
A portion of the profits from this book will be donated to Habitat for Humanity to aid in New Orleans recovery efforts.
