The old design is no longer fully supported nor does it get full attention when we roll out new features. We strongly recommend using the new design.
About meI'm the author of the long-running website The Gumbo Pages (which includes The Creole and Cajun Recipe Page and the weblog Looka!, both of which have sort of a life of their own), and a native of New Orleans, Louisiana.
About my libraryI like fiction (especially science fiction), history, fine art photography, Irish culture and music and fiction, food writing, cookbooks and books on cocktails -- we have a nice collection of fairly rare cocktail-related books, the oldest of which is William Schmidt's "The Flowing Bowl," published in 1892. I've also got tons of books on my native New Orleans and its history.
