Picked up for classic Gumbo, and found so much more. Easy reading, and clear recipes. Many regions and cultural styles.

This cookbook has some great recipes in it that are tasty and easy to follow. At first, I was disappointed because I hadn't properly noticed the 'potluck: comfort food' part of the title. In other words, this is a very specific set of recipes, and if you're looking for something specific, you likely won't find it. On the other hand, I've come to realize that the recipes in this book are things I'm actually interested in making and eating -- foods that actually fit into your regular, daily life, like fried chicken, beer bread, and cornbread stuffing. There's also some intelligent and useful tips peppered throughout the book. I will complain that, true to Emeril style, many recipes have far more ingredients than I would like. I suppose that's the 'kicked-up' part.
