Cajun cooking is the country cooking of Louisiana, the spicy intersection of French and Southern culinary traditions. Eula Mae Dore has been cooking Cajun food on Avery Island, home of the McIlhenny family and their Tabasco pepper sauce, for more than half a century. Food writer Marcelle Bienvenu has spent hundreds of hours in the kitchen by Eula Mae's side capturing the fine flavors of her self-taught cooking. Eula Mae's Cajun Kitchen is organized into menus reflecting the rhythm of life on Avery Island, such as Mardi Gras, The Trapper's Camp, A Spring Luncheon, A Summer Fishing Trip, and Halloween Bonfire. More than 100 traditional Cajun dishes such as Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo, Mini Oyster Tarts, Jalapeno Cornbread, and Blackberry Patch Cobbler are complemented with Eula Mae's reminiscences of her family and her years on Avery Island.$1 from each paperback sold will be donated to a hurricane relief fund.
