This review is from: Meanwhile, Back at Cafe Du Monde: Life Stories about Food (Hardcover). Take it from someone born in New Orleans and raised in South Louisiana, this is must reading if you love food and stories about food – which most of us down here do! The author has truly captured so much of the joy we find in eating and talking about food – it seems like every day at least one of my conversations revolves around the restaurant I just tried, or which restaurant I’m dying to try. This is an excellent coffee table book – easy reading, lovely pictures, great stories. I recommend it highly!
