Everything one needs to know about preparing an elegant and scrumptious meal is in this cookbook. Marcelle Reese Couhig educates people on the proper way to plan and orchestrate a festive gathering while offering a multitude of recipes to try. From the simplistic to the extravegant, this volume contains dishes for every meal including Brunch, Lunch, Tea, Cocktails, Dinners, and Dinners on the Posh Side.

In addition to a variety of recipes for every occasion, Couhig offers a list of essential cooking items and utensils. The Dinners on the Posh Side section presents recipes by the specific number of people you wish to serve and gives step-by-step instructions on how to pull off such a feast. Along with the typical dishes you would expect in a cookbook, Couhig adds traditional Louisiana dishes such as Red Beans and Rice and Jambalaya to create a well-rounded assortment of fine dishes.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
In 1958 Marcelle Reese Couhig, known as "Nootsie," and her husband Robert purchased the Asphodel Plantation in West Feliciana Parish. With the family occupying one portion of the Asphodel Plantation, the Couhigs opened a restaurant in another part of the house. Couhig operated her own gift shop in the plantation, notable for its many unique dollhouses and miniatures. Although the family eventually moved from Asphodel, they continued to operate the restaurant until the late 1980s. Couhig is widely remembered in "Asphodel Village" for her original bread recipe, known as Asphodel Bread-a recipe she divulges in her cookbook.
