French Chefs Arrive in America
From the early 19th century, New Orleans has enjoyed a reputation
as one of the best restaurant cities in the country. The French colonial
past of the region shaped its food culture, as did the importation of
many chefs who sought work in America after the French Revolution. Long
before the rest of America discovered the pleasures of French food, New
Orleans offered a sophisticated cuisine not found anywhere else in the
La Cuisine Creole. A Collection of Culinary Recipes from
Leading Chefs and Noted Creole Housewives, Who Have Made New Orleans Famous
for its Cuisine. New York, W. H. Coleman .
