Meanwhile, Back at Café Du Monde…, the popular, unique, and festive food monologue show presented by Louisiana foodie personalities and special guests will soon be a coffee table book published by Pelican Publishing in the September 2012.
Humorous and heartfelt, the personal food stories all have the common thread of food – our culture and relationships, personal life stories, restaurant experiences, past love affairs, and more. "We've all experienced the highs and lows of life, which mostly revolve around our food experiences," says creator/producer Peggy Sweeney-McDonald. Everyone has their own "Café Du Monde" experience—the place where they know what they are ordering, they know it is delicious, and they know they are with good friends and family and for that hour, life is really wonderful!
Based on presentations of Meanwhile, Back at Café Du Monde…, these Louisiana foodie monologues invoke your own special comfort foods, recalling tasty memories of life, love, family, and friends to warm your heart, feed your soul, and make you pause to savor the sweetness of life. Accompanied by candid photographs of the many people involved, from speakers to audience members, this book will be a treasure trove of delightful and delicious memories for all. Karen Benrud, a member of the Café Du Monde family of New Orleans, provides the foreword that celebrates the 150th anniversary of the landmark café and its history.
As Peggy says in her title monologue, “No matter where I live and no matter what happens in my life, I always end up at Café Du Monde...taking life one beignet at a time.”
