Treme: Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans

Inspired by David Simon’s award-winning HBO series Treme, this celebration of the culinary spirit of post-Katrina New Orleans features recipes and tributes from the characters, real and fictional, who highlight the Crescent City’s rich foodways. From chef Janette Desautel’s own Crawfish Ravioli and LaDonna Batiste-Williams’s Smothered Turnip Soup to the city’s finest Sazerac, New Orleans’ cuisine is a mélange of influences from Creole to Vietnamese, at once new and old, genteel and down-home, and, in the words of Toni Bernette, “seasoned with delicious nostalgia.” As visually rich as the series itself, the book includes 100 heritage and contemporary recipes from the city’s heralded restaurants such as Upperline, Bayona, Restaurant August, and Herbsaint, plus original recipes from renowned chefs Eric Ripert, David Chang, and other Treme guest stars. For the 6 million who come to New Orleans each year for its food and music, this is the ultimate homage to the traditions that make it one of the world’s greatest cities.

Po’ boy (New Orleans, Louisiana)

This famous Louisiana recipe originated from the sandwiches that were served to striking streetcar workers in 1929. The strikers were monickered as “the poor boys”. Two other version says the name came from the French pour boire which means peace offering, and from the “poor boy’s lunch” served by a certain restaurant in New Orleans. I had a couple of po’ boys at the famous Mother’s Restaurant: established in 1938 and said to be the home of the world’s best baked ham.
