I live and cook in south Louisiana, and I have probably given away 30+ copies of this cookbook... I almost always have at least two copies floating around my house, one tattered and well-used and one to give away. It is the one single cookbook I always recommend to new cooks, southern or not, experienced or novice.

Having grown up in New Orleans and living amongst the creole cooking of my grandmother, this book not only gives me so many of the recipes I lost in Hurricane Katrina, but also the stories and history of life in New Orleans in the 20th century. It is a must if you want real authentic creole recipes

The recollections about Mamere and Mamete make you feel the cooking and the life experiences right along with them. It makes me wish I was a part of their family. The recipes are easy to follow and without fail. It's the absolute favorite of my collection.
