Item Description...
Tom Fitzmorris is uniquely qualified to write about the food of New Orleans. Born in the Crescent City on Mardi Gras, he'd never left his favorite town for more than three weeks at a time--that is, until Hurricane Katrina struck and Tom and his family were forced to evacuate.

Prior to the disaster, Tom was just putting the finishing touches on his magnum opus: a collection of recipes for the best of New Orleans food gathered and developed over more than 30 years spent reporting eating in the Big Easy. In addition to his weekly restaurant review column, which has been published continuously for 33 years, Tom is best known for his daily 3-hour radio show, "The Food Show," broadcast every afternoon on WSMB.

With New Orleans Food, Tom presents more than 250 great New Orleans recipes designed for the home cook, all steeped in the Creole and Cajun traditions, yet updated to reflect contemporary tastes and ingredients. From small plates (Shrimp Remoulade with Two Sauces) to main courses (Redfish Herbsaint, Root Beer-Glazed Ham) to desserts and drinks (Bananas Foster, Beignets, and Cafe au Lait), these are dishes both elegant and casual, traditional and evolved. Whether you are nostalgic for the taste of New Orleans or simply love good food, New Orleans Food should find a place on your cookbook shelf. Now every Monday, everywhere, can be red-beans-and-rice day.

A portion of the profits from the sale of this book will benefit New Orleans recovery efforts.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
These are my favorite recipes!  Aug 7, 2008
That's why I wrote the book. So I could find the recipes I use all the time when I need them, so I can improvise new versions. I've given copies to all my friends.

Tastefully yours,
Tom Fitzmorris
Tom Fitzmorris's New Orleans Food   Aug 4, 2008
When I think of food from New Orleans, I think about hardy, mouth watering meals that taste like someone has been cooking all day just for you. In the past I have particularly enjoyed the fish and seafood recipes because I could never quite do justice to these dishes in my own kitchen.

Tom Fitzmorris's New Orleans Food to the rescue. This book contains over 225 traditional recipes including a good quantity of those traditional fish and seafood dishes that I had been trying to replicate without much success. However, after following these unexpectedly simple directions, I was pleasantly surprised that I could actually make the dishes I had been craving and make them taste as good as I had secretly hoped. I also learned a few great new recipes for beef, pork, chicken, and vegetables.

It is important to note that a portion of the proceeds of this book go to Habitat for Humanity. Great food and a good cause too.
"Tom Fitzmorris's NEW ORLEANS FOOD"  Jul 18, 2008
Although I haven't had this cookbook very long, I love it! It is simply a great read! I know enough about cooking Creole and Cajun food to know that the recipes are authentic and will "work"...but at this stage I am so enjoying the 'notes' before each recipe!

Fitzmorris is a man that truly loves New Orleans food and can write about it! Its a very good read even if you didn't make a single recipe, as written, but used the book as an inspiration for your own concoctions.

The "whys and wherefores" that he made this or that substitution are very well explained. This makes it easy for the cook to make substitutions when they can't get certain ingredients in their particular neck of the woods!

I know it is kind of strange to review a cookbook without actually cooking anything in it...but I swear you'll just love reading it!

The Best of New Orleans  Jun 27, 2008
Tom Fitzmorris is the foremost expert on food in New Orleans. With his meaty three hour daily radio show that has been going for years, he has a tremeneous amount of experience under his belt along with the best of New Orleans cooking. What a pleasure it is to see him with a book about New Orleans food!
There is no one better to show the world how the best of New Orleans cooking can be done by anyone once they have this book.

Somewhat dissappointed...  Mar 1, 2008
The best recipes to cook at home? I found them a bit complicated for 'home' recipes. And I had hoped for more of NOLA traditional fare knowing the authors roots & connections to the NOLA scene.

I grew up in NOLA as did my mother and her family going back generations, but my mom's home recipes were more in the american chop suey vain...she would have told you her best meals were eating out ;-)

Although more 'authentic' than my mom's recipes I just wasn't overwhelmed. Reading through the book, I didn't say - wow, I want to make this...

Books by Leah Chase or the Commander's Palace cookbooks inspired me more. Sorry, I went in with high expectations...

Flip through it at a book store before purchasing it online to ensure you really want to purchase it.
