Witer and food historian Lolis Eric Elie will be appearing at Peter Paul Development Center this Tuesday, April 29, from 5:30 – 6:30 PM.
As part of the Junior League of Richmond’s 69th Annual Book & Author Event, families in the Church Hill community are invited to attend a celebration of food and culture featuring Lolis Eric Elie, a New Orleans born, Los Angeles based writer, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and food historian.
Elie wrote for the HBO series Treme, set in post Katrina New Orleans. His new book, Treme: Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans, carries the same name, but offers its own with a unique mix of New Orleans’ history and a celebration of the eclectic and inventive culinary spirit that continues to thrive and evolve post Katrina.
A recipe tasting from Elie’s Treme will be provided followed by remarks on the importance of maintaining old recipes and old traditions.
