Overview
My cookbook contains over fifty authentic Louisiana Cajun and Creole recipes, many drawn from the novel of the same name. Included are such favorites as Shrimp and Okra Gumbo, French Bread Pudding with Warm Bourbon Sauce, Red Beans and Rice, Jambalya, Cajun Shrimp Fettuccini, Louisiana Fig Cake, Bourbon Pecan Pie, Shrimp Creole, and Shrimp and Corn Chowder. Primarily a cookbook, the pages are well-seasoned with Cajun Humor, recipe origins, Louisian culture, and a look at some of the Bayou State's colorful characters. Compiled as a guide for the kitchen adventurer, the book alternately provides entertainment for the casual reader.
