"There were a myriad of reasons I moved out of Louisiana and here to Portland—Mardi Gras was not one of them. In fact, the season surrounding 'Fat Tuesday' was something I knew I'd miss the most. Oregon offers so much, but nothing here can compare to the zestful flip that happens across the Bayou State after New Year's Day each year: king cakes in every bakery, homes adorned in purple, green, and gold, parades every weekend. Something special happens in Louisiana during Mardi Gras. So, I wanted to bring a little of that to our shoppers here at Powell's. I hope y'all enjoy this blend of cookbooks, heritage, culture, inspiration, and works from some of Louisiana's most prolific and budding writers. As anyone from the Boot will tell you, laissez les bon temps rouler (let the good times roll)!" — Bookseller Stacy Wayne D.
