The Larder Hits the Shelves

My essay “Italian New Orleans and the Business of Food in the Immigrant City: There’s More to the Muffuletta than Meets the Eye,” appeared in the 2013 volume The Larder: Food Studies Methods from the American South. In it I discuss the methodology I developed in that became the basis for the Documentary and Oral History Studio at Loyola and how it came to shape my narrative of immigrant and working class food businesses in twentieth century New Orleans. This work presaged the material that appears in my forthcoming work Creole Italian: Sicilian Immigrants and the Shaping of New Orleans Food Culture (UGA Press, 2018).
