World Food: New Orleans (Lonely Planet World Food Guides Series)by Pableaux Johnson, Charmaine O'Brien
Open wide and sink your teeth into Lonely Planet's new World Food guides. Whether you're hungry for adventure, or a steaming bowl of Vietnamese pho, these guides will satisfy your every craving. Written in an entertaining and opinionated style, these are the definitive culinary guides to the world's major travel destinations. They are an indispensable reference for both adventurous cooks and travellers trying to eat their way through unfamiliar menus and markets. With tantalizing photography throughout, they are also a feast for the eyes.
The pocket-size World Food guides serve up heaping portions of information on everything to do with eating and drinking in a country. They cover the history and evolution of the cuisine, its staples and specialties, and the kitchen philosophy of the people. Lonely Planet opens the doors on home cooking and traditions, showing how food and drink have become integral to personal and national celebrations, and discovering the myriad of regional cuisines that exist in even the most familiar countries.
New Orleans kitchens are home to a world of flavors. French colonists, African slaves and Native Americans have influenced what goes into the gumbo pot, and have shaped the festivals for which Creoles, Cajuns and other Louisiana locals are famous. This book takes you from Mardi Gras crowds to laid-back bayou country. It gives you the knowledge needed to feast at JazzFest, dissect countless crawfish, and find the perfect French Quarter bar. You'll delight in the potent mix of history and style found in the foods of New Orleans and Lousisiana.
