“Surprised, scintillated and salivating, I am sitting here turning the pages of "Meanwhile, Back at Cafe Du Monde", relishing every word.  Everyone in New Orleans loves food and everyone has a story about it.  It is delightful reading the ones included here.  Never heard of a pineapple upside down cupcake.  Cannot wait to try it.  Even people who have been making some of the dishes in this book for years will be thrilled to discover new recipes that add a Cajun or Creole slant to old favorites.  I want to book a flight immediately to smell, sip and devour everything in this book.  Recipes?  I want to eat the illustrations!  What a Christmas gift this will make--and stick to the ribs through every season.”  - Rex Reed, film critic

“Marking the 150th Anniversary of Café Du Monde, the southern cookbook of Peggy Sweeney-McDonald is a humerous and heartfelt compilation of personal food essays accompanied by tasty recipes and candid photographs.” – Southern Seasons Magazine

“In this handsome and heavy book filled with stories, recipes and pictures, you’d be hard pressed not to find a connection here to the people we know, the food we love and the stories about both that resonate.”                         – 225 Magazine
