ABOUT Troy Gilbert

Troy Gilbert



In 1986, Cafe Degas, a French bistro, opened on Esplanade Avenue in New Orleans. This cookbook includes the restaurant's recipes, paintings by Degas (who lived nearby), and art by the cafe's French co-owner. As Edgar Degas was an imbiber of absinthe, the book also offers modern-day recipes featuring this once-forbidden liquor.
