This review is from: Meanwhile, Back at Cafe Du Monde: Life Stories about Food (Hardcover). Having grown up in Lafayette, Louisiana, food was a very important part of my life. Having gone to LSU, food (and drink) were important parts of my life. Having gone to LSU, visits to Cafe du Monde in New Orleans were at least a monthly occurrence. Imagine the happiness I felt when I received an autographed copy of Meanwhile Back at Cafe du Monde for Christmas. The memories of Louisiana came flooding back. The memories of all the wonderful food, fun, and friends I have enjoyed in Louisiana literally leap from the pages of this “delicious” book. The stories are wonderful, the photographs are spellbinding, and the recipes will make you downright hungry. You will find yourself in your kitchen trying a recipe before you know it. Make sure you get a copy of this book soon. If you like food and wonderful stories about food, grab yourself a beignet, and enjoy this wonderful book!
