Description: Bayou Cook Book reveals the secrets of traditional South Louisiana Creole cooking. A compilation of family recipes and favorites, this unique cookbook is a must for those who love Creole dishes. 

The recipes in this volume depend heavily upon the use of spices and herbs which "enhance, not overpower, the interesting foods." Accordingly, author Thomas J. Holmes, Jr., provides a complete list of seasonings used, and includes a handy chart to help the cook season properly. 

From recipes for the bride to family favorites, Holmes covers every aspect of bayou cooking. The traditional Creole dishes are all here: Shrimp Remoulade, Seafood Gumbo, Crawfish Etouffee, along with familiar and not so familiar recipes from the plantation country of Louisiana.
