Former Times-Picayune columnist Lolis Eric Elie was a writer for David Simon's Treme, and he's compiled a cookbook of traditional and contemporary recipes titled Treme: Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans. Recipes come from local restaurants and celebrity chefs who appeared on the show, including Anthony Bourdain, Eric Ripert and David Chang. Broudain wrote the introduction to the book. The book is written from the perspective of characters on the HBO series.

Before writing for the show, Elie produced other projects focused on food and the Treme neighborhood. He authored Smokestack Lightning: Adventures in the Heart of Barbecue Country, which he wrote while working as a road manager for Wynton Marsalis. He also edited Cornbread Nation 2: The United States of Barbecue. And he wrote and co-produced the documentary Faubourg Treme: The Untold Story of Black New Orleans.

Elie signs copies of Treme at 6 p.m. Thursday at Octavia Books.
