How We Eat, And Where That Came From
A Culinary History of New Orleans, The City Where Eating Is Almost Everything
Tom Fitzmorris covers the New Orleans food scene like powdered sugar covers a beignet. For almost 40 years he's written about dining out and cooking in New Orleans. But he's best known for a long-running, three-hour daily radio talk show devoted to the same delicious subjects. Only in New Orleans could such a program thrive, because of the passion its people have for their unique cuisine.
New Orleans is also the only major food capital to have its entire culinary community put out of business for an extended time. In Hungry Town, Tom tells of the surprising return of the city's food culture, and how it was essential to the recovery of New Orleans after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. As Fitzmorris writes, “To an extent I can’t exaggerate, food and restaurants rebuilt this city and pulled people home.”
He leads up to that story with a history of New Orleans dining before the hurricane, with personal anecdotes about all the big and little, famous and obscure restaurants and chefs.
