Tujague's Cookbook: Creole Recipes and Lore in the New Orleans Grand Tradition

  • Tujague's boasts more than a century of fresh Creole cuisine served in the heart of the French Quarter. In this foray into its rich history, Poppy Tooker combines memorabilia from the archives with stunning modern images from New Orleans photographers Sam Hanna and Louis Sahuc. An award-winning author, culinary preservationist, and host of the popular Louisiana Eats!, Tooker masterfully weaves all the strands that fill the rooms of the beautifully restored Tujague's into a whole cloth of foodie lore. From the oldest standup bar in America and the restaurant that created the international tradition of brunch come recipes and tales that will charm, entice, and delight.
