Description: Welcome to a "gumbo" of flavors, cultures, and local dishes from the bayous, beaches, coral reefs, and fishing villages of America's Gulf Coast. A Taste of the Gulf Coast is filled with recipes from the people who inhabit the cities and towns spanning the coast along the Gulf of Mexico -- from Key West, Florida, to Brownsville, Texas. 

How about a bowl of Alabama Seafood Gumbo? Or maybe some Louisiana Sticky Chicken with a side of 'Sippi Slaw? These enticing dishes are more than simply southern cooking, Cajun, or Tex-Mex. More than Italian, Greek, or Cuban. These recipes reflect the melting pot of cuisines brought to the Gulf shores by Creole, Mexican, Cuban, West Indian, Dutch, African, Spanish, Greek, Italian, and French settlers -- and they're pure American. 

A Taste of the Gulf Coast is an ode to down-home cooking with more than 200 recipes, like Swimmin' Shrimp -- spicy shrimp swimming in an irresistible butter sauce (not for the cholesterol conscious); Tarpon Springs Stifado -- a pungent, beefy Greek stew; Citrus Baked Turkey -- its sweet meat falling off the bones; and Couche-Couche -- a traditional Cajun breakfast dish of cornmeal and cane syrup. It may not be fashionable cuisine, but its hearty flavors and ethnic accents make us feel warm inside and out. 

Take a trip through A Taste of the Gulf Coast and visit the picturesque places that dot America's southern shores. Meet the people -- like Louana Barber of Key West, Betty Moss of New Orleans, Lupita Poole of Brownsville, Anthony Griffin of Galveston, and Judy Arceneaux of Morgan City, Louisiana, where Cajun food is king. Then try their recipes, and treat yourself to the best of America's Gulf Coast.
