This review is from: Meanwhile, Back at Cafe Du Monde: Life Stories about Food (Hardcover). I received ‘Meanwhile, Back at Cafe Du Monde’ as a Christmas present and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Peggy Sweeney-McDonald has done an outstanding job of capturing New Orleans life – through the eyes of incredible characters, unbelievable food and fantastic stories! As a native New Orleanian, reading this book made me laugh and made me homesick for this wonderful city and its people. Thank you Peggy for bringing all of these stories together and creating a keepsake. To all you native New Orleanians who have left the city since Katrina, you will love this book as it brings back some great memories. And for those of you new to New Orleans, this book is the beginning of your love affair with this city. Laissez les bon temps rouller! C’est bon!
