Summary
"Tom Fitzmorris covers the New Orleans food scene like powdered sugar covers a beignet. For more than thirty-five years he's written a weekly restaurant review, in addition to editing magazines and writing books. But he's best known ofr a long-running, three-hour daily radio talk show devoted entirely to New Orleans restaurants and cooking. Only in the Crescent City could such a program thrive, because of the matchless passion its people have for their unique cuisine. ... This book includes authentic recipes for many of the dishes that come up in the story, including Barbecue Shrimp, Red Beans and Rice, Roast Beef Poor Boys, and Flounder Stuffed with Crabmeat. Told by a native New Orleanian with an undying devotion to his city and the distinctive food it has imspired, 'Hungry Town' is a compelling tale of eating and cooking in the face of devastation and reconstruction"--Page 2 of cover
