Poppy's latest book, Louisiana Eats! gives readers an in-depth, behind the scenes look at Louisiana food producers and personalities interviewed on her popular, NPR affiliated radio show of the same name.  Louisiana Eats! features portrait photographs by David Spielman, revealing faces - some familiar and some, previously unknown who are the subject of each chapter.  
These compelling images are accompanied by amazing stories previously untold, each in an intimate, personal way.  It examines the place that food and race play on Louisiana's tables; champions the growers and food producers who are preserving endangered indigenous ingredients like Creole cream cheese and mirlitons that are vital elements of our culinary scene. Each chapter is also accompanied by recipes designed to entice readers to enjoy a real taste of Louisiana Eats! Books.html
