Overview

Here for the first time is a collection of recipes from the band of states that surround the Gulf of Mexico (including about 1100 miles of shorelines), Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas. The food is a melting pot of several Native American cuisines and foods brought to the shores by Creole, Mexican, Cuban, West Indian, Dutch, African, Spanish, Italian and French settlers. A Taste of the Gulf Coast includes about 200 recipes from both the hot new chefs who are reinventing classic dishes and home cooks, creating up-to-date versions of old recipes to suit lighter, contemporary tastes. This unique collection includes recipes like Char-Grilled Lamb Empanadas in Green Chile Sauce and Softshell Crab Gumbo with Caramelized Okra Toasts. Jessie Tirsch is a food writer and consultant. She moved to New Orleans from New York City in 1988.
