Description: Pinpoint the major settlements around the Gulf of Mexico and you've got a road map to good times and great food. Start light in the Floribbean cafes of Key West, then it's on to Tampa Bay for the Cuban nightlife of Ybor City and the Greek tavernas of Tarpon Springs.
Old South fish fries and porch suppers fill lazy days from the Florida Panhandle through Alabama and Mississippi. A few miles and a world away, Louisiana is famous for its Creole and Cajun cuisines and pagan work ethic. Tex-Mex goes uptown in the cosmopolitan restaurants of Houston, while covering the waterfront in freewheeling cantinas and crab shacks from Galveston to South Padre Island. Go even deeper and you'll taste its sophisticated tropical roots along the Mexican coast.
Gulf Coast Kitchens Cookbook is your culinary guide to these incredible places. Here is true fusion cooking -- French, Cajun, Spanish, Mexican, Asian, African, Italian -- centuries in the making, where jambes and paellas morphed into jambalayas. Author Constance Snow gathers together the vast array of flavors this wide-reaching landscape offers, making for a collection of recipes so fresh, exciting, and diverse that your taste buds will be aquiver as you turn the pages, which are filled with all the Ya Ya energy and Creole color you would expect from such a melting pot of people and cultures.
