A native New Orleanian, Poppy Tooker is passionate about food and the people who make it. She hosts the popular weekly radio show Louisiana Eats! From which this book originates. From the transcripts of fifteen one-on-one interviews featuring specialists of iconic Louisiana foods, Tooker introduces the reader to the stories behind the everyday foods that make culinary history. Each intriguing essay features recipes that showcase these culinary treasures and a photo of the personalities behind the engaging anecdotes.
Originally published in 1900 from the handwritten notes of Mme. Bégué herself, this collection of dishes from a quintessential New Orleans restaurant are now available in a edited and modernized version of the 1937 edition. One of the first cookbooks ever published in New Orleans that became a sought-after souvenir of the Bégué’s dining experience, it has been updated with a foreword by renowned food enthusiast Poppy Tooker.
Part dramatic history, part eerie ghost stories, part a study of marketing genius, and part a celebration of restaurant excellence, this cookbook by author and culinary historian Poppy Tooker masterfully combines all the myriad strands that fill the rooms of Tujague’s beautifully restored establishment into a whole cloth of foodie lore. In a continuation of the research begun for her first project with Pelican, Mme. Bégué’s Recipes of Old New Orleans Creole Cookery, Tooker focuses on the second-oldest restaurant in New Orleans with its more-than-a-century-old tradition of serving excellent, fresh Creole cuisine in the heart of the French Quarter.
