Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Kerri is truly one of America's most exciting photojournalists."
--Emeril Lagasse

"Kerri's work is lush with natural light that makes the images sensual and rich, and transforms the places she photographs into poems."
--Francis Ford Coppola

"A virtual must for all devotees of New Orleans culture, Etouff�e, Mon Amour is a most pleasurable means to enjoy food, architecture, and history in one book."
--Bloomsbury Review

"McCaffety knows how to capture the fleeting beauty of a moment."
--New Orleans Times-Picayune

From the antebellum legacies of grand old restaurants like Antoine's, Tujague's, and Bruning's to the newcomers like Jacques-Imo's, Bayona, and Clancy's, not to mention the legion in between, the countless stories of establishments dedicated to the je ne sais quoi of dining form part of the essential history of New Orleans. Kerri McCaffety's mix of history and evocative, rich photographs documents an unparalleled majesty of the senses, a decadent revelry in the past, and the daily marking of pleasure.

More About the Author

"Kerri's work is lush with natural light that makes the images sensual and rich, and transforms the places she photographs into poems."
-Francis Ford Coppola

Bachelor of Science in anthropology at Tulane University, New Orleans, 1989
Internship with Peter Woloszynski, World of Interiors, 1995

Kerri McCaffety has photographed twelve books, six of which she also wrote. Awards for her books and images include a gold Lowell Thomas award, gold and silver Benjamin Franklin Awards, an Alpha award, New Orleans Gulf South Booksellers Association's Book of the Year, and two silver Independent Publisher awards. While documenting the city's architectural and cultural history, she has been called "stunningly skilled," "a genius," and "the reigning Queen of New Orleans color photography." Her works have been deemed "pillars of Louisiana's cultural record."
In 1998, McCaffety published her first book, Obituary Cocktail, The Great Saloons of New Orleans, a photographic essay and history exploring the city's social and architectural heritage through its tradition of drink. It was named Book of the Year by regional booksellers, broke sales records in New Orleans, and became a local sensation. Obituary Cocktail went on to inspire a fan club and a popular bar tour while winning major awards from the country's two leading independent publishers' groups.

Made my mouth water for the great food of New Orleans. They don't make restaurants like this anymore. Should include Eleven Seventy Nine.

0 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Not happy on January 18, 2011
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I would love to review this book but it is still on back order for over a month. I work for a hospital and we give our medical staff (over 400 physicians) a birthday gift every year. This year we selected this book and began ordering on December 13th for the January birthdays. To this date, we have only received 5 books. During 2011, we plan to order more than 400 books totaling over $10,000. When I contacted Amazon via chat, I was told that the book is not available. I find it disturbing that Amazon is not interested in calling their distributors to find out when the books will be available. The chat representative said she would personally follow up on this order but I have not heard from her as of yet. Meanwhile, our January physicians' birthdays are passing without receipt of a gift so we will have to go in another direction.
