Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
You don't have to travel to Café Degas in New Orleans to enjoy simple French food. In this beautiful cookbook, Gilbert, a food writer and longtime patron of Café Degas, provides an armchair tour of the famous restaurant. Dishes include Crawfish Pie (which calls for crawfish tails, mushrooms, corn, and heavy cream), Spiced Pecans (What Louisiana cookbook would be complete without pecans?), and Degas Hush Puppies (a delicious combination of cornmeal, egg, Crystal hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne). Recipes are written for the seasoned cook.
