great dishes made for a tasty Thanksgiving
It was difficult to choose a dish as they all looked great. Having seen Emeril on TV, I was interested in trying some of his creations - this book did not disappoint, results were great and I will be making more food with this book. Thanksgiving meal had: Exotic Mushroom Bread Pudding, Banana Cream Pie (which was about as good as the one I sampled at the Orlando location) Oyster & Eggplant Stuffing and Andouille & Corn Meal Spoon Bread. Sure, there are a few steps involved with the dishes, but then, that's what cooking is about. It makes me wonder about those reviewers who complain about that aspect of the recipies. Instruction is quite adequate,that is if you are somewhat familiar with cooking. The beauty of this book is the tempting selection. I certainly don't expect this nor other books of his be 'authentic New Orleans cooking' and they don't really claim to be, but this book and at least 'Every Day's a Party' are interesting interpretations of dishes with a bit of fun. Lighten up and enjoy. If you want Cordon Bleu, well, don't get this. If you want to indulge, the Emeril books are quite fun. Don't count calories!!!!Was this review helpful?
