I have been going to Galatoire's since I was a young child. On a recent trip to New Orleans, my husband and I were lucky enough to find this cookbook. As a wonderful birthday surprise, my husband made the stuffed eggplant. As anyone who has had the stuffed eggplant at Galtoire's knows, the name of the dish is a misnomer. The stuffed eggplant is a wonderful gastronomic event filled with shrimp and crabmeat. Later we made the crabmeat au gratin with the leftover crabmeat - it was sublime. I am looking forward to trying some of my other favorite dishes from the restaurant such as the crab maison and oysters en brochette. Anyone who has been to Galatoire's knows there are no descriptions of the food -- only names and prices. One of the things I love about the book is knowing what some of the dishes are. I will surely sample more on my next visit to New Orleans. Galatoire's is an institution and I am so pleased to have some of their recipes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
