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.
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!
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.

Perfect combination of recipes, artwork, and history. The book is such a nice product that I almost hate to keep it in the kitchen for fear of getting food on it!Published on January 5, 2013 by Michael R
Williams-Sonoma put's out very good books and products. This one has good information and pictures. Plus it gives a brief history of this food culture as well.Published on January 3, 2010 by R. Peckham
I love New Orleans. This book is pretty good. However. It needs either more recipes and less pictures or vice versa. It's trying to do too much and kind of fails to do either.Published on May 12, 2009 by Thomas Frankowski
