Additional Details

Description: The word Lagniappe was used in the first edition of this cookbook to designate miscellaneous recipes and culinary tips which were scattered throughout the first chapter wherever space permitted. This happy term expressed so well the general flavor and spirit of the book that it has been promoted in this edition to chapter heading status.  

Lagniappe, a soft and friendly word, springs from the French for "the" (la) and the Spanish for "gratuity" (nappe). Its birthplace was in southern Louisiana, a land famed for its cookery. Its definitions include "a small gift given a customer by a merchant at the time of a purchase" and "something given or obtained gratuitously by way of a bonus or good measure." 

What a fitting expression for a cookbook which bubbles over with the pleasures abounding in good food . . . one which embodies the cookery of many nationalities. 


Condition: Good condition.
