Author and culinary historian Poppy Tooker combines family photographs, stories, and recipes from Pascal’s Manale into a collection that is much more than a cookbook. Tooker’s exploration into the storied Uptown restaurant, one of the “jewels in New Orleans’ culinary crown,” reveals the history of the family behind it and their influence on the city’s culinary culture. In contrast to the chef driven French dishes of the Creoles, Sicilian cuisine came straight from mama’s kitchen just as the signature dishes on the tables of this beloved eatery. A bastion of Italian cuisine in New Orleans, recipes for Pas-cal’s Manale’s best-known dishes, including their famous barbequed shrimp, stuffed artichokes, and meatballs have fed their fans for over a century.

 A native New Orleanian, Poppy Tooker is passionate about food and the people who make it. She was awarded both a master chef’s diploma and the coveted cooking teacher’s diploma upon completion of Madeline Kam-man’s legendary professional course. Her classical training and love of New Orleans cuisine has been recognized interna-tionally and across the United States. She was awarded the Lit-erary Award of the Year by the Louisiana Library Association in 2013. Tooker hosts the popular weekly radio show Louisiana Eats!
