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.”
