Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itâ?TMs still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

" . . . hugely influential for me and my budding culinary peers of the time . . . both [Mitcham] and his books were fascinating depositories of recipes, recollections, history, folklore and illustrations, drawing on his abiding love for humble, working-class ethnic food of the area." -Anthony Bourdain "Creole Gumbo is more than a cookbook. It is a history book, a music lesson and a personality profile of great jazzmen." -Today "A delightful book with excellent recipes . . . " -New York Times Here's a dazzling array of photos, foods, and far-out folklore, spiced up with tidbits of jazz history and lyrics-all gathered into a seafood cookbook that celebrates the world-famous cuisine of New Orleans. Author Howard Mitcham traces the development of sophisticated Creole cooking and its rambunctious country cousin, Cajun cooking, with innumerable anecdotes, pictures, and recipes. Mitcham offers more than three hundred enticing dishes, from crab gumbo and shrimp-oyster jambalaya to barbecued red snapper and trout amandine. Along the way, he offers a list of substitutes for seafood that may be hard to find, a bibliography, and a guide to the best mail-order seafood markets in New Orleans. Howard Mitcham, renowned chef, poet, artist, and raconteur, practiced the inventive art of New Orleans cuisine for three decades.

I am born and raised here in New Orleans. Katrina took my first hard cover copy of this book and now my soon to be X wife took the replacement. This will be the third time I've bought this book. It is that good.

I picked up the Howard Mitcham books after reading about them in Anthony Bourdain's book, Kitchen Confidential. It's really awesome and gives you more than just recipes, there's a lot of background that makes it an awesome read.

This book gives an excellent background of the accounts of early new orleans as well as a good deal of information about the common ingredients in creole cooking and how they made their way into the melting pot that is new orleans today. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading through it and speaking with my grandpa about his experiences in new orleans during the 40s. He says of many of the dishes that they sound familiar and he just ate it, he didn't have a name for it.

So far I have only tried the Courtbouillon recipe which is pretty standard but delicious anyway.

So many great recipes makes this book a winner. Add in the stories/history and I find myself picking it up again and again. Thus far I have made three recipes from it. Crabmeat Ravigotte, Creole Gumbo and Marinated Crabmeat. Win, Win and Win!

If you the book you send has an entirely different cover you should change the picture you display. The book i got had a photograph that i considered a less than respectful, stereotypical photograph of Louis Armstrong and I wouldn't have bought it for the gift I had intended it for.
