Overview

It's time to play with New Orleans musicians, as they invite you into their kitchens to share their stories and recipes. Based on the much-loved OffBeat magazine series with the same name, The Gravy: In the Kitchen with New Orleans Musicians will fill your ears and your belly, whether you choose breakfast with Mystikal, or lunch with Irma Thomas and her Macaroni and Cheese, or Creole Squash for supper at Big Al Carson's house with a side of Antoinette K-Doe's Cornbread. With 44 first-person accounts from musicians and more than 200 photographs, this book digs into the deep connections between New Orleans music and food. Almost every musical genre in New Orleans is represented in these pages: jazz and brass, bounce and blues, Cajun and zydeco, singer-songwriter and Mardi Gras Indian music, hard rock and indie rock, hip-hop and rap, funk and pop, rhythm n blues, electronica, and world music.

Editorial Reviews

The Times-Picayune, NOLA.com - Judy Walker
"The Gravy: In the Kitchen with New Orleans Musicians" is Elsa Hahne's follow-up to her lovely, innovative 2008 book, "You Are Where You Eat: Stories and Recipes from the Neighborhoods of New Orleans." Once again, with her photographs and stories straight from the mouths of her subjects, Hahne takes readers into hearts and kitchens.
Humid Beings - Jocelyne Ninneman
What I love about “The Gravy” is that you have two months of edible soul to experiment with as you discover just what New Orleans music tastes like. Admit it, you’ve wondered, at least once, what these extraordinary sound sorcerers put in their bodies to make all that magic come out their mouths… and hands… and feet. And the answer to that, is in “The Gravy.”
