Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Tom Fitzmorris started The New Orleans MENU, a review of New Orleans dining, in 1977; 20 years later, the publication evolved into its current form as a daily Internet newsletter. Tom's radio show "The Food Show," is broadcast every afternoon on WSMB 1350 AM. He is the former editor of the weekly newspaper Figaro, and the monthly New Orleans Magazine. Tom became a Certified Culinary Professional from IACP in 1986.

More About the Author

Tom Fitzmorris was born in New Orleans on Mardi Gras. So a career writing and broadcasting on the pleasures of eating came naturally. He writes the longest-running restaurant review column in America by a single author, published every week since September, 1972.

He's better known, though, for talking about food on the radio. His program airs for three hours a day, six days a week, on WWWL (1350 AM) and WWL (105.3 FM). "I'm not sure of that much radio time spent on food will work," he says. "It's only been on the air since 1988."

Tom writes and publishes the New Orleans Menu, a newsletter published every weekday online at NOMenu.Com. It covers the whole New Orleans food scene: restaurant reviews, recipes, top-ten lists, a calendar of local food events, a daily food almanac, and his Dining Diary. "It's what's now called a blog, but I've written it since decades before that word was invented," he says.

He's the author of sixteen restaurant guides, four cookbooks, and a memoir. The most recent include the fifth edition of "The Unofficial Guide to New Orleans" (Menasha Ridge Press, 2008) and "Tom Fitzmorris's New Orleans Food: 250 of the City's Best Recipes for Cooking at Home" (Stewart, Tabori and Chang, Second Edition, 2010). The memoir--which focuses on the reaction and recovery of the restaurant scene in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, as well as other major turning points in the city's culinary past--is "Hungry Town" (Stewart, Tabori and Chang, 2010).

Every week, Tom convenes local food-and-wine aficionados for the New Orleans Eat Club, a series of dinners in the restaurants of the city. A more-than-decent cook in his own right, Tom stages several annual dinners for various charities throughout the year.

Except for the six weeks after Katrina, Tom has lived his entire life in New Orleans. He attended Jesuit High School and is a graduate in Communications from the University of New Orleans (1974). He is married to the former Mary Ann Connell. They and their two children, Jude and Mary Leigh, live near Abita Springs, across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans. Good wild mushrooms grow in the woods around his house.

Tonight I made Cole Slaw, Red Beans, Chicken Gumbo, and Rice Pudding for a Mardi Gras dinner. Every dish was outstanding! I have over 100 cookbooks and I can honestly say that I've never made a better meal from a single cookbook. To top it all off the book cost me $4.10 new!!! Thanks Tom for such an amazing resource. Do not hesitate to buy this book!!!

I bought this cookbook for my Hubby about four months ago. (He does most of the cooking, it is a trick I learned many years ago from my Dad - If you want to get out of doing something, do it really bad and pretend like you do not know how! LOL It works! ). He cooks from this cookbook atleast twice a week. Everything that he has cooked, so far, has been absolutely delicious!!! I gave him two other cookbooks at the same time but Tom Fitzmorris's cookbook by far is his favorite & mine! Ssshh, don't forget our secret & buy them this cookbook - you both will be amazed of the fine dining quality food that is cooked from this book!

I bought three copies of this book for my family members after recieving a copy of it while in N.O. I took it home and have tried a number of recipes. All have tasted great and they are pretty easy to follow. Only issue has been finding some of the "specialty" ingrediants in Midwest...I have had to learn to substitute some of the more obscure items.

I will say that I may be one of the world's worst cooks. Tom has spent nearly 40 years dealing in the restaurant business and he knows food probably more than anyone. He is a food genius. I had a question about one of his recipes that was above my head since I am such a novice, and he took time to answer my questions over email. Therefore not only does he know great food better than anyone in the world, he will gladly respond to an email with a question that you have on one of his recipes. He also has a daily radio show where you can ask him questions on these recipes. So he is always available for questions as well.

This is a super collection of traditional New Orleans recipes from a long time fixture of the local food critic culture of the city. I'm pleased to add this cookbook to my collection of references on New Orleans food.

A great book full of authentic New Orleans and Louisiana fare recipes. A far better gift that any book by a celebrity chef, even if people outside of Louisiana may not know who Tom Fitzmorris is.
