Meet the Author

Hailed "the king of red beans and rice," Buster Holmes (1905-1994) fed the masses at his French Quarter restaurant for fifty years. The restaurant's authentic and famously inexpensive Creole cuisine drew crowds of local musicians, including Louis Armstrong, but once its reputation grew, customers traveled far and wide to get a taste of Holmes' authentic, soulful dishes.
