I grew up in New Orleans and areas south. I found that this cookbook is authentic and true to my memories of foods I ate as a child. It really helps when one of my friends wants a recipe for something I cook from memory because they can pretty much duplicate the dish. It also helps me refresh my memory of dishes I haven't cooked in a while. I have given copies of this cookbook to all of my children so that they can always remember how to cook like Momma.
