St. Pierre has once again shared his playful joie-de-vivre! The Crème de la Crème Brûlée is to die for. Thank you, for sharing all of these amazing creations. They remind us why it is good to be Southern. -Dee DeVore Kenney


​This book is simply a beautiful and authentic reflection of the Treme neighborhood, not all the fancy-smancy uptown NOLA or NYC influenced and/or fusion-hybrid silliness that the HBO series tries to force onto a show that is supposed to be, primarily, about a nitty-gritty, down-to-earth area of the city of New Orleans’. Don’t get me wrong, I love the show over-all and I understand that they have poetic license; but what I love even more is that this book stays true to the Faubourg Treme and its history, music, food customs and does genuine justice to its unique culture! Thanks for keepin’ it real and not BAM-ing it up or over Spicer-ing it or (& I thank the culinary gods for this one most) not Bourdain-ing it to death! Braveaux! -Lisa LaFleur-Tobias (Fleur-De-Lisa)
