"New Orleans Classic Seafood is equal parts restaurant guide and cookbook with wonderful full-page color photographs. Crab, crawfish, oysters, shrimp, redfish, catfish, etc., all play lead roles in bisques, étouffées, gumbos, jambalayas, and other longtime favorites. Best of all, the recipes don't condescend. Any food lover with sound cooking skills, fresh herbs, distinctive spices, and quality seafood is sure to love the results."

"Legendary seafood dishes are spotlighted in Kit Wohl's fabulous new recipe book. As with both the Arnaud's Restaurant Cookbook and New Orleans Classic Desserts, Wohl has produced another timeless collection of excellent fare from past and present restaurants, establishments and authoritative chefs. The accompanying stories and gorgeous photographs work in tandem to make the pages spring to life and capture the essence of seafood's significance to the culture and palate of New Orleans. That alone is reason enough to add New Orleans Classic Seafood to one's cache of prized cookbooks. Indubitably, the brilliant recipes are an absolute must-try at home."

New Orleans Classic Desserts will prove a very popular and 'kitchen cook friendly' addition to any cookbook shelf."

Gourmet Magazine
This winning book, photographed and designed by Wohl herself, pays enthusiastic homage to her beloved city.
Library Journal

In Wohl's fourth entry in Pelican's "Classic Recipes" series (after New Orleans Classic Desserts; New Orleans Classic Seafood; and New Orleans Classic Appetizers), she includes recipes for gumbo, that true New Orleans classic, along with bisques and other soups, from some of the city's top chefs. All are shown in color photographs, and there's a special section on roux, the base of any real gumbo, and other ingredients. For area libraries and other regional cookery collections.
