The Fish That Ate the Whale: The Life and Times of America's Banana King

The Fish That Ate the Whale: The Life

Named a Best Book of the Year by the San Francisco Chronicle and The Times-Picayune The fascinating untold tale of Samuel Zemurray, the self-made banana mogul who went from penniless roadside banana peddler to kingmaker and capitalist revolutionary When Samuel Zemurray arrived in America in 1891, he was tall, gangly, and penniless. When he died in the grandest house in New Orleans sixty-nine years later, he was among the richest, most powerful men in the world. Working his way up from a roadside fruit peddler to conquering the United Fruit Company, Zemurray became a symbol of the best and worst of the United States: proof that America is the land of opportunity, but also a classic example of the corporate pirate who treats foreign nations as the backdrop for his adventures. Zemurray lived one of the great untold stories of the last hundred years. Starting with nothing but a cart of freckled bananas, he built a sprawling empire of banana cowboys, mercenary soldiers, Honduran peasants, CIA agents, and American statesmen. From hustling on the docks of New Orleans to overthrowing Central American governments and precipitating the bloody thirty-six-year Guatemalan civil war, the Banana Man lived a monumental and sometimes dastardly life.

Mam Papaul New Orleans Desserts Bundle - 1 each of Bread Pudding, Bananas Foster and Praline Dessert Mixes

Mam Papaul New Orleans Desserts Bundle - 1

Known as the "poor man's pudding", Bread Pudding can be traced as far back as ancient Rome and Egypt where budget conscious cooks looked for ways to put leftover bread to good use rather than letting it go to waste. Today, Bread Pudding is often made using raisins or pecans and topped with a sweet Rum or Bourbon sauce. It has gained a reputation for being a true comfort food and is often a featured dessert item in many of New Orleans most famous restaurants. Originally inspired by the cook of the 17th century French sugar industrialist, Marshal du Plessis-Praslin. This confection was originally made with almonds and caramelized sugar. Early French settlers brought this recipe to Louisiana where sugar cane was plentiful and created what has become known throughout the American South as the praline (pronounced Praw-leen) by substituting pecans for almonds and adding cream to thicken the confection. Now enjoy this Louisiana favorite from the convenience of your own kitchen. New Orleans has been a major port of entry for bananas for decades. In the early 1950's one of New Orleans leading chefs was challenged to create a recipes using bananas to help promote this abundant fruit and Bananas Foster was born! Bananas Foster continues to be served at fine restaurants throughout New Orlean...
