Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The life span of most restaurants is shorter than that of the average household pet, so when an eatery can claim to have remained open for 87 years, it is an accomplishment indeed. Arnaud's Restaurant of New Orleans opened its doors in 1918, and this book-a tidy marriage of Creole recipes and New Orleans history written by a close associate of the current owners-serves as a tribute to the institution's culinary staying power. Arnaud's has known only two family proprietors since its inception; some of the items on the menu, e.g., Shrimp Arnaud, date back to the original list of fare and can still be ordered today. Also included are history on the featured dishes and explanatory notes that will help weekend warriors attempting to put food to plate. Recipe ingredients should be easy enough for most people to purchase. Beautifully illustrated and well organized, this is recommended for public libraries with extensive cookbook collections.-Sean Michael Fleming, Lebanon P.L., NH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Real Creole

    Arnaud¿s Restaurant Cookbook is a jewel. It demystifies Creole cooking ¿ the real stuff - not the tourist fare that¿s burnt with too much cayenne and slathered with tabasco. The recipes can be authentically executed in the amateur kitchen from readily available ingredients. Recipes range from the humble red beans and rice to the exotic and heady Caf&#279 Brûlot. And yes, it includes the correct recipe for an Old Fashioned. The book is beautifully illustrated and filled with the myth and history of the classic Arnaud¿s Restaurant in the context of New Orleans. There¿s even a picture of a ghost!

    Classy Classic!

    This book is beautifully photographed, interesting to read and of high quality. It will be hard to decide whether to display it on your coffee table, or to keep it in the kitchen! Classic recipes are logically arranged and so well-written cooks of any skill level will experience success following them. Definately a 'must-have' addition to your culinary library!
