Description: The restaurants of New Orleans are among the most famous in the world -- and rightly so—for the Creole Cuisine is virtually the only original cuisine of distinction created in America. This fabulous food, unlike any other, is served with style in surroundings redolent with history at the restaurants of America's most colorful city, where kings and presidents have feasted with delight. New Orleanians have been having a love affair with food for two and a half centuries, and the subject of their passion is represented in this book.
Collected inside The New Orleans Restaurant Cookbook are recipes for culinary masterpieces from the major New Orleans restaurants -- Gumbo, Turtle Soup, Crawfish Bisque, Oysters Rockefeller, Cafe Brulot -- to name a few -- and drinks such as the famous Sazerac Cocktail.
Besides exact cooking instructions from the chefs, there are fascinating stories with pictures of each restaurant represented. The author has tried to capture the mood, personality and atmosphere of each restaurant through anecdotes and interviews, interlaced with interesting historical details -- some of which are unknown even to the cognoscenti of the Crescent City.
Few people who have eaten in New Orleans will ever forget it -- and few hostesses who treat their guests to this marvelous food will ever be forgotten. Erstwhile visitors to New Orleans will find an opportunity to relive and enjoy anew their experiences there in the recipes, pictures and stories, and visitors-to-be can use this book as a guide as well as a cookbook. It is a souvenir, a guide, and a cookbook.
