Overview

As much a state of mind as a place in time, this magical meandering roadway follows the mighty Mississippi River and connects Louisiana's two most significant-and most diverse-metropolitan areas. Only a book like this, celebrating the region's unique culture and characters, crops, and cuisine, can give the reader a taste of what life has been historically and still is today along the River Road. And only a historian and storyteller such as Anne Butler, who lives this life in one of Louisiana's early plantations, could do it justice.

Butler's lessons in history and heritage are leavened by a dash of humor as she tells of the crown prince whose aversion to bathwater was matched by his daring in dining, serving turkey buzzard stew and fried toadstools to his horrified dinner guests. There's even a recipe for Buggy Banana Bread, a specialty of one of the state's newest and most popular attractions, the Audubon Insectarium-and yes, it does contain crunchy crickets, an important source of protein in many communities worldwide.

This is the fourth in the popular series of gastronomic tour books on Louisiana's culinary culture by Anne Butler. The others are Audubon Plantation Country Cookbook, named a Best New Cookbook of the Year by Louisiana Life; Bayou Plantation Country Cookbook; and Acadian Plantation Country Cookbook, all published by Pelican.
