Visions of blackened redfish, bowls of gumbo and a pepper jelly-glazed duck breast swirled around me like a hurricane as I read about the history of yesterday and today about some of the most notable restaurants in New Orleans as well as the best places to drink, even the ones off the beaten path. There are no photographs in this book but you don't need them. You will envision and even taste "from memory" some of the best cuisine you have ever had. Although I do not currently live in Louisiana, this is were I spent half of my life.
Author and New Orleans resident Steven Wells Hicks brings to life the vivid history of how these culinary establishments came to be and the people that nurtured them and even how a storm named Katrina couldn't take it away their resilience. He guides us through the years of this distinctive culinary landscape and what it is today. Through his words, he reminded me of how my direct ancestors of my Delta Sicilian heritage influenced and created a fusion of the Cajun/Creole Cuisine with their indigenous Italian family recipes like no where else in the world. The culinary influences are imprinted on my soul and just reading the words made me homesick. Steven Hicks made me realize how much I have been missing out. When I was growing up in Northern Louisiana, a trip to South Louisiana or New Orleans was a treat. Now, I envy my friends who still live there and on a whim, can experience the most unique and satisfying culinary haven on the globe.
Mr. Hicks takes us through the colorful history behind many of the most famous restaurants and their famous dishes in New Orleans such as Galatoire's and Antoine's as well as Paul Prudhomme's rise to "Champion of Louisiana Cuisine".Read more ›
