Tom Fitzmorris is uniquely qualified to write about the food of New Orleans. Born in the Crescent City on Mardi Gras, he has been eating, celebrating, and writing about the food in his favorite town for more than thirty years. Just after Hurricane Katrina, Fitzmorris put the finishing touches on his collection of recipes for the best of New Orleans food, gathered and developed during his tenure as the Big Easy’s resident foodie.

Now, three years after the release of New Orleans Food, Fitzmorris revisits his magnum opus to coincide with the publication of his memoir, Hungry Town. This expanded edition features 25 delicious new recipes steeped in the town’s Creole and Cajun traditions yet updated to reflect contemporary tastes and ingredients. Whether you’re nostalgic for the taste of New Orleans or simply love good food, New Orleans Food should find a place on your cookbook shelf.
