Tujague's opened in 1856 on the New Orleans riverfront and has been serving Creole food ever since. This book has vintage and modern photographs and outstanding recipes, including the restaurant's signature Brisket with Horseradish Sauce. Tooker's research is impeccable; she obviously spent a lot of time learning every speck of Tujague's history. Today, Tujague's is a hot place for lunch, and the chef does an outstanding seafood courtbouillon. Buy this book to learn what was on the menu in the 1800s, then head to your kitchen to cook it.

Great book. I loved getting the historical view of this restaurant and the area where it is. Recipes are fantastic. I can't wait to try more of them. Tujague's is one of the oldest establishments in New Orleans and it was great to see the old photos and compare to the current bar.

I got this as a gift for my daughter-in-law for Christmas because she had been telling me about a visit to Tujague's on a 'haunted pub crawl' last year. Not only is it a recipe book, it also has a lot of history and stories in it about Tujague's. She was absolutely thrilled with it.

Excellent. Great history, well told.Love the recipes.Poppy Tooker does New Orleans right.

During a recent visit to New Orleans, our culinary tour guide was carrying this cookbook, sharing excerpts and stories as we visited and tasted foods and drinks which have helped define the culture of the city. After reading the recipes and the stories about the traditions and people who gave life to these recipes, I wanted to cook my way through this cookbook. Thank you for a book which celebrates, preserves and shares the unique cuisine of this French Quarter iconic restaurant.

I remember going to this restaurant when I was a kid. The service was exceptional, & the food was always phenomenal! I bought this gift for my mom's birthday, but I also had ulterior motives.😉
