Treme: Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans
Motivated by David Simon's honor winning HBO arrangement Treme, this festival of the culinary soul of post-Katrina New Orleans highlights plans and tributes from the characters, genuine and anecdotal, who feature the Crescent City's rich foodways. From culinary specialist Janette Desautel's own Crawfish Ravioli and LaDonna Batiste-Williams' Smothered Turnip Soup to the city's best Sazerac, New Orleans' cooking is a mélange of impacts from Creole to Vietnamese, without a moment's delay new and old, cultured and down-home, and, in the expressions of Toni Bernette, "prepared with flavorful sentimentality." As outwardly rich as the arrangement itself, the book incorporates 100 legacy and contemporary plans from the city's proclaimed cafés, for example, Upperline, Bayona, Restaurant August, and Herbsaint, in addition to unique plans from eminent gourmet experts Eric Ripert, David Chang, and other Treme visitor stars. For the 6 million who come to New Orleans every year for its food and music, this is a definitive reverence to the customs that make it one of the world's most noteworthy urban areas.
