The Napoleon House, with its 200-year-old colonial charm, has seduced New Orleans visitors and locals for generations and become a favorite destination for all connoisseurs of atmosphere.
In vibrant prose and beautiful photographs, Mikko Macchione and Kerri McCaffety tell its story, from its 18th-century beginnings as the home of one of la Nouvelle Orlï¿½ans' most prominent citizens, through its incarnation as the mainstay of one Italian family, and finally, to its maturity as one ot the world's great bars.
People come to the Napoleon House for food as well as for drink. These pages include recipes tor its most popular dishes, alongside the how-tos for its signature drinks, including the famous Pimm's Cup.
For over twenty years, Mikko Macchione has been researching and recounting New Orleans history. After eight years as a tour guide, he has gone on to write four hooks and many articles on the city. As an actor he has brought to life characters from New Orleans' past, including Andrew Jackson, Mark Twain, and Jean Lafitte. The award-winning play Jour de Gloire, which he wrote and starred in, is a lyrical chronicle of the rise and fall of Napoleon Bonaparte, with whom he shares a birthday.
Kerri McCaffety's photographs have been called "pillars of Louisiana's cultural record." It was the voices in the flaking walls of the Napoleon House that inspired her to document the architectural treasures ot her adopted city. With six books, numerous articles, and several gallery exhibits, it's clear she has responded to the call.From the Back Cover:
