Crescent City Collection: A Taste of New Orleansby Staff of The Junior League of New Orleans
Crescent City Collection: A Taste of New Orleans presents culinary and historical traditions, lovingly passed down from generation to generation. Gene Bourg, former restaurant reviewer for the Imics-Picayune, expresses our passion: "New Orleanians have their own scale of cultural values, but none is more deeply imbedded in the municipal psyche than food."

Standards such as Red Bens and Rice. Seafood Okra Gumbo, and Bananas Foster are joined by dishes with new twists: Iried Crawfish Remoulade on the Half-Shell. Dixic Brisket.

Intertwined with the culinary offerings are fascinating narratives of JLNO Show Houses by Robert J. Cangelosi, Jr., A.I.A.
