In the pages of Fresh From Louisiana, George Graham delivers a road map of the culinary delights that await you and the fresh ingredients that will astound you. Eating in the South is tied to the seasons, and Louisiana is no exception. Farm-fresh and wild-caught are the cultural mandates of Louisiana cooking and the essence of what sets it apart.
The recipes in this book are divided in a way to ensure the freshest ingredients are available during the respective growing season. As a child, George learned to anticipate the market seasons: Ponchatoula strawberries in the spring, Creole tomatoes in the summer, Evangeline sweet potatoes in the fall, and a pot full of farm-fresh collards in the winter. And the Louisiana soil delivered.
George Grahamhas lived in South Louisiana for all his life. He has been an avid student, chronicler, and photographer of the region's culture and culinary traditions. Born into a restaurant family and a former restaurateur himself, he has written about Cajun and Creole cuisine for newspapers and magazines, and he has been a finalist on television's Food Network Challenge.

He lives in Lafayette, Louisiana, with his wife and daughter.
