Praise for Kit Wohl's books:
GOURMET MAGAZINE'S COOKBOOK OF THE MONTH
NEW ORLEANS MAGAZINE'S COOKBOOK OF THE YEAR
"Wohl, an artist and author, was determined to assure everyone that the cuisine of New Orleans was still very much alive. And this winning book, photographed and designed by Wohl herself, pays enthusiastic homage to her beloved city. She tirelessly shakes down New Orleans' culinary kings and queens (John Besh, Susan Spicer, Leah Chase . . . ), combs through some of the grandest kitchens (Antoine's, Commander's Palace, Arnaud's, Galatoire's), and even travels outside the city limits for John Folse's bayou specialties."
