    What a gift to Katrina survivors and to all of us who love New Orleans cuisine!

    "Cooking Up A Storm" is a remarkble tribute to New Orleans, a great city with great food, and, most important to the cooks who gave it character and gutsy flavor. The recipes are exceptional because they are derived from requests from those who lost their treasured recipes after Hurricane Katrina.

    This book won't replace the actual clipped and hand-written recipes treasured and passed down by generations of New Orleans home cooks, restaurateurs and bakers, but they help to carry on a remarkable gastronomic tradition.

    Each recipe is accompanied by its background and how and why it was selected for incusion in the book.

    Toques off to Marcelle Bienenu and Judy Walker and to the New Orleans Times Picayune for letting the good times and good food keep on rolling along!

    Cooking up a Storm by Marcelle Bienvenu, Judy Walker

    I love this cookbook. I'm originally from Louisiana and found many of the favorite dishes I grew up with, along with some wonderful new dishes. All of the recipes I have tried have been wonderful. My daughter is getting married soon and already has a copy as well as several other family members and coworkers. Reading this cookbook reminds me of how special the people of Louisiana are and how food plays such a vital role in our culture.

    Great Cookbook!

    I purchased this book recently for my wife and she loves it. Now she can throw away all her recipe clippings from the T-P since they are all in one book now. Excellent for anyone who lost their recipes in Katrina and didn't know how they would ever replace them.
