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.

[Back Flap]

Heralded as "one of the great photo-journalists of America" by John Mariani of Esquire, writer and photographer Kerri McCaffety has exhibited her work in art galleries throughout New Orleans.

A graduate of Tulane University's Newcomb College with a degree in anthropology, McCaffety has photographed studies around the world, including work in Europe, Central Africa, and Haiti.

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

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.
