Overview

"A delightful book with excellent recipes . . . "
-Mimi Sheraton, New York Times

"Hugely influential for me and my budding culinary peers of the time . . . both [Mitcham] and his books were fascinating depositories of recipes, recollections, history, folklore and illustrations, drawing on his abiding love for humble, working-class ethnic food of the area."
-Anthony Bourdain

"Creole Gumbo is more than a cookbook. It is a history book, a music lesson and a personality profile of great jazzmen."
-Today

    Fascinating history lesson while you cook!

    Two for 1 with "Creole Gumbo and All That Jazz". Excellent original south Louisiana recipes and fascinating history facts about New Orleans Jazz. Having grown up in the area I can attest to its authenticity. Since I no longer live there this well written compilation is a feast of memories.
