Author Lorin Gaudin will be at Bay Books from 5:00-7:00 on Saturday, May, 11th to sign her book, New Orleans Chef's Table: Extraordinary Recipes from the French Quarter to the Garden District.
In New Orleans Chef’s Table, local food writer Lorin Gaudin goes deep into the heart of the New Orleans food scene to share recipes that celebrate the grand old traditions as well as the cutting edge of modern cuisine, from Galatoire’s and Commander’s Palace to Maurepas Foods, Root, and Domenica.
New Orleanians know that the Crescent City has a lot more to offer than jambalaya and beignets, gumbo and étouffée. As Gaudin writes in her introduction: “No one has abandoned tradition in the name of progress—the two walk hand in hand. We embrace our food traditions, eat lovingly and happily from a plate of red beans and rice or let the juices run down our arms from a messy roast beef po-boy, but that doesn’t stop us from diving into compressed melon and icy cool avocado ‘dippin’ dots.’” Gaudin explores both sides of New Orleans cooking – and allows readers to recreate some of their favorite delicacies at home.
More than a cookbook, New Orleans Chef’s Table features intimate conversations with some of the city’s best chefs, both established and up-and-coming. With full-color photographs throughout highlighting fabulous dishes, top chefs, and New Orleans landmarks, it is the ideal ode to the city’s vibrant food culture.
Lorin Gaudin has passion for all things food and drink. With a Bachelor's degree in Theater from Loyola University of New Orleans, and a culinary diploma from The Ritz-Escoffier in Paris, she parlayed her education to become a Food Editor/Reporter for national, regional and local publications as well as local television and radio stations. Lorin is a contributing editor/writer for The New York Post, Culinary Concierge, Where Magazine New Orleans and Where Y'at Magazine. She is the creator-founder of FiveOhFork, specializing in culinary social media/web content, and typically, a cocktail is in her hand when a Po-Boy isn't.
