Classic Restaurants of New Orleans

Description

Author: Alexandra Kennon

Every New Orleanian knows Leah Chase's gumbo, but few realize that the Freedom Fighters gathered and strategized over bowls of that very dish. Or that Parkway's roast beef po-boy originated in a streetcar conductors' strike. In a town where Antoine's Oysters Rockefeller is still served up by the founder's great-great-grandson, discover the chefs and restaurateurs who kept their gas flames burning through the Great Depression and Hurricane Katrina. Author Alexandra Kennon weaves the classic offerings of Creole grande dames together with contemporary neighborhood staples for a guide through the Crescent City's culinary soul. From Brennan's Bananas Foster to Galatoire's Souffl Potatoes, this collection also features a recipe from each restaurant, allowing readers to replicate iconic New Orleans cuisine at home.

About the Author
Kennon, Alexandra: - Alexandra Kennon grew up in the small town of St. Francisville, Louisiana, just a short drive north of New Orleans. After graduating from the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts, she moved down the Mississippi River to attend Loyola University in New Orleans, and the Crescent City's eccentricities and debauchery suited her so well she has since proudly called it home. In addition to writing about Louisiana's rich history, cuisine and culture, Alexandra leads tours of her beloved city and acts for the stage and screen--she is most proud to have originated roles in two Tennessee Williams one-acts.
