The Gravy: In the Kitchen with New Orleans Musicians by Elsa Hahne
Thurs. May 30
Museum Store/Center for Southern Craft and Design
From the author of You Are Where You Eat: Stories and Recipes from the Neighborhoods of New Orleans (University Press of Mississippi), Elsa Hahne’s latest book, The Gravy: In the Kitchen with New Orleans Musicians (High ISO Music) evolved out of a monthly column of the same name in OffBeat magazine, a New Orleans music publication. The thought was that there was a strong connection between musicians and food: many cooked for themselves while on the road, and quite a few of them had jobs in the restaurant industry. The musicians are based in New Orleans, and Hahne got 44 of them to participate in the book: Irma Thomas, 10th Ward Buck, Susan Cowsill, John Boutté, Sean Yseult, and Mystikal are just a sampling.
The mission of The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, University of New Orleans, is to broaden the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the visual arts and culture of the American South through its permanent collections, changing exhibitions, educational programs, publications, research center, and its Goldring Woldenberg Institute for the Advancement of Southern Art and Culture.
The Museum Shop and the Center for Southern Craft and Design support this mission by offering artists and artisans from the South a platform to showcase their work to national and international audiences, and by making available to the public products that celebrate the spirit of the South.
