Hot off the press release, late breaking news from the acclaimed HBO Series Treme comes Treme: Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans by Lolis Eric Elie, David Simon, creator of the HBO series Treme and The Wire, and executive producer Nina Noble. All will be at Johnny’s at 4800 Roland Avenue this coming Sunday, December 15th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. for a book signing, inspired snacks and a Treme cocktail. It is a great opportunity to grab extra copies and have them autographed for holiday gifts.
Treme, with more than 100 heritage and contemporary recipes, is a celebration of the eclectic and inventive culinary spirit of post-Katrina New Orleans, including contributions from such legendary restaurants as Brigtsen’s, Upperline, and Commander’s Palace plus original recipes from many of the renowned chefs who have made guest appearances on Treme. “There’s a here, here,” says the quixotic Davis McAlary of his indescribable, multifaceted city. The surest way to get there, to the true flavor of Treme, is through its vibrant cooking.
“Food, music, and New Orleans are all passions about which—it seems to me—all reasonable people of substance should be vocal. . . . This book gives voice to the characters, real and imaginary, whose love and deep attachments to a great but deeply wounded city should be immediately understandable with one bite.” —Anthony Bourdain
The event costs $50 per person and includes a signed copy of the cookbook and above mentioned snacks and cocktail. Anyone interested in attending should call 410-773-0777 ext 2 to reserve a spot.
