Quick Overview

Inspired by David Simon’s award-winning HBO series Treme, this celebration of the
culinary spirit of post-Katrina New Orleans features recipes and tributes from the
characters, real and fictional, who highlight the Crescent City’s rich foodways. From
chef Janette Desautel’s own Crawfish Ravioli and LaDonna Batiste-Williams’s Smothered
Turnip Soup to the city’s finest Sazerac, New Orleans’ cuisine is a mélange of influences
from Creole to Vietnamese, at once new and old, genteel and down-home, and, in the
words of Toni Bernette, “seasoned with delicious nostalgia.” As visually rich as the series
itself, the book includes 100 heritage and contemporary recipes from the city’s heralded
restaurants such as Upperline, Bayona, Restaurant August, and Herbsaint, plus original
recipes from renowned chefs Eric Ripert, David Chang, and other Treme guest stars.
For the 6 million who come to New Orleans each year for its food and music, this is the
ultimate homage to the traditions that make it one of the world’s greatest cities.

“Food, music, and New Orleans are all passions about which—it seems to me—all reasonable people of substance should be vocal....This book gives voice to the characters, real and imaginary, whose love and deep attachments to a great but deeply wounded city should be immediately understandable with one bite.”
—Anthony Bourdain
