Description: The home chef looking for a truly distinctive cookbook, one that will supplement rather than duplicate the standard volumes already on her shelves, need look no further. Louisiana Cookery is it!
The cook who owns this unique book can prepare menus that will astound as well as delight her family and friends (see the back of this jacket for a sample list of rare and tempting recipes). In addition to such unusual (and perhaps slightly impractical) dishes as fricasseed octopus tentacles and curried coot breasts, Louisiana Cookery contains hundreds of more conventional recipes, new and traditional, gathered from all corners of the Bayou State, where cooking is considered one of the fine arts.
But this cookbook is more than a compilation of recipes: it is a fascinating account of how Louisianians cook, in the Evangeline country, in northern Louisiana, and in world-famous New Orleans French restaurants.
Condition: Good condition.
