We mourn the tragedy which has befallen beautiful New Orleans, but also look forward to an exciting renaissance. In that theme, we offer two titles which relate to previous cultural revivals in the Crescent City:
This is the 1901 edition of the Picayune newspaper's book which catalogued, preserved, and continues to popularize traditional Creole cooking. As a result of the Picayune's visionary effort, Louisiana's cooking is today not only America's most distinctive and widely-acclaimed cuisine, but it also arguably the most important single factor in the preservation and celebration of New Orleans' culture.

This book by Patricia Mitchell includes an information-packed summary of Louisiana food and culture from the early settlement through post-Civil War and twentieth-century periods of rediscovery and revival. See further information and ordering instructions.
