By NuJoi VINE VOICE on October 21, 2005
Format: Hardcover
I cried when I leafed through this book. I doubted that WS would deliver an authentic New Orleans cookbook (they might try to change stuff), but I purchased it from WS anyway to support the hurricane victims. What I received was an awesome "food pictorial." Beautiful shots of the wonderful and authentic recipes, but also beautiful photos of the restaurants, markets, streets and people I miss.

The opening paragraphs and sidebars that accompany the recipes are thoughtfully written and insightful. This book does an artful job of presenting recipes that draw on all of the cultures that make up New Orleans' cuisine. The recipes range from simple to sublime. As with all WS books, the recipes are well-written. The seafood gumbo recipe is excellent. I've shared it with family and it will be the one I use for my Christmas gumbo.

I lived and worked in the city for a while and this book makes the good memories rush back. I commend WS on the excellent research and other efforts that went into producing such a stellar book.

I'm a New Orleans native living in Chicago. I received this book as a gift, and was very skeptical. What a surprise! The photos are amazing, the information is clear and concise, and the recipes are right on target! This is a wonderful guide to New Orleans cuisine... a great gift for anyone who loves the Crescent City!

My husband and I fell in love with this book. We go to New Orleans each year for a mini-vacation with the kids. We are originally from south Louisiana and we enjoy the people, the culture, and especially the food. This book reminds us of our trips and the photos depict the true New Orleans the way it was before Katrina. We wanted to save our memories and that is why we bought this book. Also, we have frequented several of the restaurants mentioned and we love to cook and try out new recipies.

The first part of the book is all about New Orleans: the history, the neighborhoods, the culinary staples, the traditions.
Then it goes into the recipes, lots of classic cajun and creole dishes and some not as common ones as well.
Full of great pictures of the city and the food.
Lots of appealing recipes!

My father was from Louisiana and taught me to cook a number of Cajun dishes when I was growing up. I read most of the recipes and plan to prepare as soon as I adapt them for my needs. I have to eat low carb/grain-free.

This is a lovely book. I wish more recipes were included, however, a lot of the classics are. It is a stunning pictorial of New Orleans and the food history of the region that is included is wonderful. As a cookbook it is good. As a stunning photographic pictorial capturing New Orleans it is one of the best.

This cookbook is outstanding! Not only does the book include wonderful recipes from my favorite city, but there are also written treasures about this awesome city. My friends and I went to New Orleans for our senior class trip when we were in high school (three buses filled with kids from Akron). To celebrate our 50th birthday, we went back to New Orleans. We had a blast - riding the trolley, eating the food, visiting the French Quarter, eating beignets at the Cafe du Monde, sightseeing, etc... I bought this cookbook for my friends as a Christmas gift. It is a beautiful cookbook!

This is gorgeous to look at. Like most Williams Sonoma products, it is well put together, beautifully presented and somehow a little too showy to be very useful.

There are some great recipes in the second half of the book. There are also some really interesting things in the front of the book.

However, it would have been wonderful to have a high end, intermediate to advanced cookbook based on New Orleans style food with more than a few recipes. The recipes that are in here are delicious and easy to follow. I just wish there were MORE of them.
