--Joe Cahn, president, New Orleans School of Cooking

"Louisiana seafood has its first authentic reference book, done by a native with bona fide and original recipes tested to perfection and guaranteed to be memorable. It's good . . . it's well done . . . and it's presented just the way it should be. It's going to be one of the most popular seafood cookbooks ever."
--Chef Paul Prudhomme, K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen

The Frank Davis Seafood Notebook is perhaps the most comprehensive cookbook available for seafood. This isn't surprising, because for years Frank Davis has been a renowned authority on the subject. According to noted New Orleans chef Paul Prudhomme, Frank Davis is the "number-one authority on cooking and eating the fresh fish and game of Louisiana." This cookbook is jam-packed with a wealth of information on all aspects of preparing seafood, including buying, serving, freezing, and preserving, as well as a detailed discussion of basic ingredients and spices, and a rating of more than 240 species of edible fish caught in U.S. waters.

Davis's recipes include traditional Cajun, Creole, and Italian favorites using fish, crab, crawfish, oysters, shrimp, and mixed seafood, with a few alligator dishes thrown in for good measure.
