Description: More than 250 authentic Cajun and Creole recipes and memories from a Louisiana native. 

In Louisiana, life happens in the kitchen. Children are reared and lives unfold over bubbling pots of gumbo, bowls of shelled peas, and shaved-ice sno-balls. The kitchen is the happy hub where heritage is conveyed, culinary traditions evolve, and Cajun and Creole cuisine is at its finest. 

Unfortunately, when Hurricanes Katrina and Rita destroyed homes and neighborhoods and displaced hundreds of thousands of people in Louisiana, bonds were stretched and many recipes lost. The Gulf Oil Disaster of 2010 has the potential to further violate the deep, yet delicate heritage of this very special Southern state. 

Fortunately, Roux Memories offers the Louisiana diaspora – as well as anyone else with a love for Cajun and Creole fare – more than 250 home-tested recipes along with snippets of life from a Cajun family with four decades of roots in New Orleans. Accompanying the recipes are vintage family and food photographs as well as information about the roots of Cajun and Creole cooking. 

Recipes include: 

  • Crawfish Gumbo 
  • Cajun Corn Soup 
  • Shrimp Remoulade 
  • Hickory and Spice Burgers 
  • Cochon de Lait 
  • Alligator Fritters 
  • Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya 
  • Galette du Roi (King Cake) 


Condition: Good condition.
