Prepare your appetite for dishes from Restaurant August, Arnaud's, Commander's Palace, Cochon, Antoine's, Herbsaint, Galatoire's, Dickie Brennan's Bourbon House, La Côte Brasserie, and other bistros, cafés, and restaurants that have made dining in New Orleans an art. Imagine shooters that don't intoxicate: sublime crawfish or shrimp in sake cups, raw oysters served in a shot glass, dancing in flavorful finery. Contemplate shrimp in a number of guises, beef carpaccio, and deviled quail eggs capped with caviar.
Whether sampled at friends' homes, on balconies or patios, served as elegant picnic fare in parks or neutral grounds, or prepared as delicious additions to your own table, the fifty featured dishes, borrowed from the city's renowned restaurants and chefs, will immerse home cooks in the traditions and flavors of New Orleans. Though gleaned from the experience, confidence, and special methods of the trained chef--from grand old culinary gals to feisty young upstarts--this cookbook is written with the home cook in mind and will turn any novice into a professional.
