Description: New Orleans' sweetest memories are collected in one delicious book. It's a legacy of good times, great food, and glorious desserts.
The chefs are a Who's Who of New Orleans cookery and the restaurants exalted, legendary establishments. New Orleans Classic Desserts is a treasure trove of fifty favorite, signature dishes created in New Orleans or at least raised there to their highest level. Legends,lore, and musings accompany each recipe, topped off with sumptuous photographs.
These world-renowned dessert recipes range from the glory of Sister Mary's Pecan Pralines (or the even more homey Bon Ton Bread Pudding) to the magnificence of Arnaud's Crème Brûlée and the drama of Brennan's faming Bananas Foster. You can re-create the grace of Crozier's Floating Island, turtle cookies from the once-ubiquitous McKenzie's bakeries, Commander's Palace's Bread Pudding Soufflé, Galatoires Crème Caramel, and Emeril's Banana Cream Pie -- and don't forget Chef Leah Chase's Sweet Potato Pie.
Nothing is more New Orleans than a sweet memory.
New Orleanians celebrate at lunch and dinner -- and crown our celebrations with the grand finale of a classic dessert. Of course, there's a difference between what a professional makes and what you are able to create in your own kitchen. However, these recipes aren't written for the professional, although they may make you look like one. Each recipe has been home-kitchen tested for your use. We want you to be happy, look good, and easily duplicate a spectacular recipe from a famous restaurant or chef.
If you know what it means to miss New Orleans, this cookbook is for you. If you've never been here, plan a salute to the city and prepare a specialty you've only dreamed about.
