My friends Patricia and Philip know me well. When they see a really interesting cookbook for sale, I’m often the lucky (and grateful) recipient. And they have good taste - especially for food that tastes good! They also understand that cookbooks need to be beautiful as well as practical.
Actually, her name is JoAnn, and she is the owner of the Upperline Restaurant situated in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans, Louisiana, a city also known as NOLA. (I can't get Barry Manilow's "Copacabana" out of my head now...)
Mark and I just had our second trip to New Orleans and, over the next several weeks, I will be sharing with you some of the culinary delights we enjoyed while there as well as some shots of this beautiful city: something to get you in the mood for Mardi Gras.
