Publisher Comments:

After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, thousands of people lost their keepsakes and family treasures forever. As residents started to rebuild their lives, The Times-Picayune of New Orleans became a post-hurricane swapping place for old recipes that were washed away in the storm. The newspaper has compiled 250 of these delicious, authentic recipes along with the stories about how they came to be and who created them. Cooking Up a Storm includes the very best of classic and contemporary New Orleans cuisine, from seafood and meat to desserts and cocktails. But it also tells the story, recipe by recipe, of one of the great food cities in the world, and the determination of its citizens to preserve and safeguard their culinary legacy.

New Orleans is my hometown*, as much a part of me as my heartbeat, and Hurricane Katrina broke that heart. "Cooking Up a Storm: Recipes Lost and Found from the Times-Picayune of New Orleans" helped to heal me. I found recipes, of course, lost to me since childhood. Every time I use one of these fabulous recipes, the aromas of New Orleans fill my home, head, and heart. If you would like to experience the tastes, aroma, and spirit of New Orleans in your own home, I highly recommend this cookbook!

*I moved to Portland a month before Katrina struck.

Everyone needs to own this book. The stories alone are worth the price. I have given several copies as gifts. Recipes are to die for - try the tarte a la bouille.
