The Big Kahuna of Cookbooks

Here's a little breathtaking hubris on my part.  I'm going to cite my favorite cookbook.  Now I like such classics as Julia Child's Mastering The Art of French Cooking, The Italian Farmhouse Cookbook, The Joy of Cooking, James Beard's Cookbook, and several others.  But when I turn to Creole and Cajun recipes, this is the one I recommend:




For true!  This is where I get my special back home recipes for special occasions or when I'm trying to lay some culinary gris-gris on a guy or prof.  And for a church covered dish dinner, some of these recipes for gumbo or jambalaya overwhelm the competition.  Dat's right, dawlin'!

I might like this one as well, as I don't know if I have any special cookbooks with New Orleans recipes.

One of the best things about my time in New Orleans (many years ago) was the food!

My goodness, those folk know how to season their food!

I may have too check this one out.
Thank you for the recommendation, Angel.
