Reviews

[This] deeply informed and plainly heartfelt investigation into New Orleans finest food traditions taps into a cornucopia of cultural riches. "
An endearing collection of stories from the seven years [Sara Roahen] spent in the Crescent City, learning to embrace its unapologetically decadent cuisine. It is part culinary history, part memoir and part homage to places that have since been erased. "
Informative, engaging and amusing . . . Gumbo Tales has the not-surprising effect of leaving the reader s mouth watering. --Jonathan Yardley"
This is the book to lead you, rejoicing, to your favorite restaurant, or fire up that kitchen stove to make a batch of gumbo for your mama n dem. This book is a joy to read, a pleasure to pass along, a book to treasure. It leaves you hungry in your body, satisfied in your soul. "
