About the author
My interest in native cuisines is one of hands-on discovery. Born to Louisiana's unique natural resources, I was reared among the savory gumbos and jambalayas of Creole and Cajun kitchens. And as an adult, I traveled extensively, taking from varied cultures the arts of their ancient hearths. My cookbooks are a handy addition to the well-rounded repertoire of the modern cook. Whether for family, for friends, or for a memorable departure from the predictable, you may choose among appetizers, sauces, sides, entrees and desserts; many of which are seasonal favorites. This cookbook is a compilation of Louisiana recipes, spiced with Cajun humor and a dash of native history.
