Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
First published in 1984 by Courrégé, the late Louisiana chef who called the pecan "God's gift to the South," this wonderful cookbook has been substantially revised with new photographs and recipes, written and tested by Food & Wine contributing editor Bienvenu. The 45 recipes include soups, salads, and main dishes, but the desserts are the highlight: Banana Bourbon Cake, Pineapple Cake, Fig Preserve Cake, and Rum Bourbon Balls. For the true pecan connoisseurs, the Pecan Martini (made with pecan liqueur, pecan meal, vodka, and a lightly toasted pecan half) is a must! A source guide is included. Highly recommended for nut lovers and Southern cooks.
