"Tenney Flynn is the grand master of Gulf Coast seafood. This book, full of his delicious recipes and deep sea wisdom, can lead you to mastery as well."--Lolis Eric Elie, Author of Treme: Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans (6/1/2019 12:00:00 AM)
Tenney Flynn talked trash (fish) early on. He championed fresh Gulf seafood when most chefs crushed on frozen Atlantic salmon. Now, it's time to learn how smoked sizzling oysters came to be, how to do redfish on the half shell right, and how GW Fins helped lead the modern seafood revolution.--John T. Edge, author of The Potlikker Papers: A Food History of the Modern South (6/1/2019 12:00:00 AM)
From the day it opened, GW Fins has been one of my absolute favorite New Orleans "go-to" spots. The signature hot biscuits are perfection, the wine list is superb, and I'd walk a mile for the ethereal lobster dumplings alone. This book is an extension of the history and extraordinary hospitality of the restaurant and is a must for anyone who loves seafood even half as much as Tenney does.--Julia Reed, Contributing editor, Garden & Gun (6/1/2019 12:00:00 AM)
"I love that Chef Tenney shares so much how-to and comprehensive info on seafood selection. Recipes are clear and concise, photos excellent.--Frank Brigsten, James Beard Award-winning chef-owner of Brigtsen's in New Orleans (6/1/2019 12:00:00 AM)
"Technique, style, and finesse without losing touch of where Tenney's feet are on the ground! The flavor of NOLA and the exquisite photography of the city, sea, and landscape as well as the fine combination of dishes put this book as one of my favorites.--David Burke, New York chef/restaurateur (6/1/2019 12:00:00 AM)
"Tenney Flynn's really good with handling some stuff I don't trust anybody to cook. He's the best cook I know."--Mac Rebennack, Aka Dr. John (6/1/2019 12:00:00 AM)
