I don’t know if Sara Roahen can swing a hammer, but she sure has a way with words and food and her new book “Gumbo Tales” is a big contribution to rebuilding New Orleans’ culture and sharing it with the rest of the world.

The book is excellent: entertaining, thorough, appetite-inspiring.

Get it.

Here’s more info about it on her very well done web site: Gumbo Tales
