Austin Eats
ACL's food court, 10 years later
Food Story  September 16, 2011, by Claudia Alarcón
"...By my second Jazz Fest experience, however, I had joined the conversation about which vendor had the best Crawfish Monica, soft-shell crab po'boys, and crawfish pies. I had discovered that Jazz Fest is a food destination as much as a premier music festival, a showcase for the world-famous specialties of the regional Cajun and Creole cuisines..."

Bartlett's adds a dash of Austin to the chain-restaurant model and comes out on top
Food Review  August 5, 2011, by Virginia B. Wood
"...Both the gargantuan double-cut pork chop ($24) and the simple roasted chicken ($18) were equally impressive; the big cut of pork was moist and flavorful despite its size, and the chicken tender and juicy under a skin crisped with herbs and apricot jam. Perhaps the most impressive plate was the day's fish special, an expertly butterflied whole trout dressed with a Creole pecan mustard sauce ($19) with flaky fish beneath the nutty coating..."

"...The show even has a female chef character (convincingly played by Kim Dickens) who loses her restaurant in the wake of Katrina and becomes an expat chef in NYC, cooking her own brand of New Orleans-inspired cuisine at one of David Chang's famous restaurants. Treme has featured cameos by celebrity chefs Chang, John Besh, Donald Link, Tom Colicchio, Eric Ripert, and the legendary New Orleans culinary queen Leah Chase, dishing out gumbo z'herbes in her restored Creole landmark, Dooky Chase..."

Chef John Besh Visits Austin
He's always eager to share the South's traditions of food and hospitality
Food Story  June 3, 2011, by MM Pack
"...On Tradition, Authenticity, and Innovation: Besh is best known for showcasing traditional Louisiana cooking – Creole and Cajun, urban and rural – but he's quick to point out: "I've been blessed to be exposed to a great food culture all my life, but authentic doesn't mean tired. You've got to keep a balance – tradition, yeah, but you've got to have people that push ahead; it's always an evolution..."

New food ventures temper a fond farewell to the folks behind Mama Roux
Food Column  March 4, 2011, by Virginia B. Wood
"...During a busy week of preparing our story about the wealth of good Cajun and Creole restaurants currently available in the Austin metro area, we received the sad news of the untimely deaths of restaurateurs Yoli and Michael Amr. The pair made a great restaurant team, with Yoli's gift for warm hospitality and Michael's marvelous cooking, and I was a big fan of theirs from the original Gumbo's to the more recent Mama Roux..."

Miles Davis
Bitches Brew: 40th Anniversary
Music Story  December 17, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...A singular act of erotic liberation and psychedelic transformation, Bitches Brew crowns Miles Davis' electric era. Radical and prophetic, the 1970 masterpiece created its own Creole language, a divine concoction of ultra jazz-funk, defiantly black R&B, and revolutionary rock & roll, masterfully assembled by producer Teo Macero..."

Grateful Dead + Papa Mali = 7 Walkers
Music Story  November 26, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...That camaraderie was plainly evident at the 2009 Austin City Limits Music Festival, where the two held court backstage with the merriment of old friends. Not even the Saturday afternoon downpour dampened their enthusiasm as they essentially laid out the blueprint for 7 Walkers – juke-joint blues, creole funk, and South Austin Americana interwoven with the Grateful Dead canon – during Papa Mali's set on the Austin Ventures stage, closing with a stirring revision of "Friend of the Devil."..."

Streat struggles to execute a broad menu but still hits some sweet spots
Food Review  November 12, 2010, by Virginia B. Wood
"...My most consistent successes at Streat have been when I've stopped by for breakfast on the way to the nearby Chronicle office. I occasionally treat myself to one of their excellent espresso drinks paired with either churros ($1 each), fried Mexican doughnut sticks crusted in cinnamon sugar, or Creole beignets ($2.49 for three), fluffy little pillows of fried dough dusted with powdered sugar..."

Get a bucket of chicken for four or a single order, plus bacon-wrapped, cheese-stuffed jalapeños in a Lone Star Beer honey glaze, or baked potatoes topped with okra Creole. Tim Love's Love Shack/Lonesome Dove Western Bistro..."

Bess Bistro on Pecan
Check out Bess for the welcome atmosphere, friendly and efficient service, and well-executed menu with something for everyone
Food Review  September 24, 2010, by Claudia Alarcón
"...A few of the old standby menu items remain, perhaps in slightly different preparations: The flagship Shrimp Bess ($14)with creole butter and ciabatta is still as delicious as we remembered; the shepherd's pie ($12) now has cheddar cheese atop the mashed potato crust and comes with greens tossed in balsamic vinaigrette; the croque monsieur ($13) is made on toasted pain au levain (all bread is made on-site at Walton's) with shaved Niman Ranch ham, toasted mustard, béchamel, and Mornay, served with Bess' addictive pommes frites. But there are also new items that captured our eye..."

Plays With Expectations
Jake Silverstein mixes fact and fiction, funny and bleak, to dramatize one journalist's coming-of-age
Books Story  April 16, 2010, by Kimberley Jones
"..."There are some real elements or bases for the fictional chapters, but partly I feel like this is what the novel has always fundamentally been – this kind of mongrel or creole form. It has some nonfiction in it and some fiction in it, and it's all sort of jumbled together," he says...."

You the Living
You the Living charts an unrelated series of tiny dooms, culminating in one big bang of one; not since Dr. Strangelove has a film so perfectly married gallows humor to horror
Screens Review  February 12, 2010, by Kimberley Jones
"...The bleak, comical tableaux continue, and certain refrains emerge: "Nobody understands me." "Tomorrow is another day." "Last call." The denizens of this unnamed Swedish town are slumped, predisposed to defeat, yet weirdly endearing, even as Andersson keeps them spatially and narratively at arm's length. The secret weapon is the song: Creole music plays throughout, and it provides a sunny sonic uplift, nudging the action a few crucial clicks away from tragedy, toward absurdity...."

Hot chocolate, indoor turkey frying, and more for the holidays
Food Column  December 25, 2009, by Virginia B. Wood
"...• My Thanksgiving turkey adventure included two turkeys, two gallons of cooking oil, two helpful gentlemen (thanks Mike and Ike), a generous supply of Tony Chachere's Creole Season­ing, and a Masterbuilt Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer. Numerous horrifying video warnings from concerned friends notwithstanding, I found the turkey fryer safe and easy to use, frying both a carefully thawed 12-pound organic turkey from Whole Foods and a fresh, pastured local 11-pound turkey from Alexander Family Farm..."
