Arguably America's most popular indigenous nut, the pecan offers a comfortingly rich and buttery flavor. Equally suitable for sweet, savory, and spicy dishes, the nut and its remarkable versatility take center stage in this celebration of the pecan in all its forms and flavors. From the simple pleasure of roasted pecans to the more complex pairing of Speckled Trout with Pecan Meuniere, the dishes in this cookbook offer a delicious spectrum of tastes and treats to savor all year long.
This strikingly photographed collection features more than three dozen appetizer, main course, side dish, and dessert recipes. Entries range from Deviled Eggs with Pecans and Cream of Potato and Pecan Soup to Pecan-Crusted Salmon with Pecan-Breaded Eggplant and Fig Preserve Cake with Pecan Icing. Classic sweet pecan dishes such as Pecan Pie, Pecan Pralines, and Sugared Pecans are also included.
Complete with information on storing pecans and an explanation of the step-by-step process to cook with them, this compendium contains details about the harvesting and grading process, along with some heart-healthy tidbits on the nut's natural goodness.

The best recipe so far was the best-ever brownies. They aren't kidding, they are so rich and decadent! My fiance and I ate them all within a few days. Very addicting!
The chicken salad is delicious! I'm very picky when it comes to chicken salad, most of the time it comes out terrible in my opinion. We ate it with Ritz crackers, very yummy!
Will be trying a few more before I have to return the book. But I have copied down almost all the recipes for future use. If you love pecans, you must get this book! You won't regret it!
Marcelle Bienvenu is a southern Louisiana cook and if she is associated with a cookbook, it has to be good.
I purchased this book from the Strand Bookstore in NY (through Amazon) and was pleased with the timely shipping and sturdy packaging. Would use this bookstore and amazon again.
