Review

"product of its time, the brief window between the storm and six months of its aftermath." --Judy Walker, Times Picayune, August 3, 2006

About the Author

Amy Cyrex Sins graduated from Loyola University in 2000 with a degree in Communications. She is a cooking enthusiast who spends every free moment in the kitchen cooking for friends and family. Her specialty is entertaining and creating fun, festive and memorable parties for every occasion. In Amy’s kitchen, she incorporates a unique blend of classic local cuisine with cutting edge culinary trends to create food that everyone can appreciate. She enjoys the distinctive blend of culture, history, and cuisine in the daily lives of her fellow New Orleanians and was inspired to write her first cookbook after the events of Hurricane Katrina ravaged her home and city. With the fleeting days, she becomes more nostalgic for the flavors of her childhood and the stories of times past. After the flooding, she was most disappointed by the loss of her collection of handwritten recipes passed on from family and friends. In an attempt to salvage and recreate, Amy began this book project. She has met many interesting people along the way and embraced their family favorites as her new ones. Amy is hopeful about the future of New Orleans and is doing everything within her power to bring the message of rebuilding to the nation. Her book is one small step in preserving something we all hold dear: life, culture, family and food that are all uniquely New Orleans.

I love, love, love this book!!!! I could not put it down! Not only is it a cookbook, but it's a photograph book, and a story book of Katrina and life after it, as well as wonderful cookbook. The author really did a great job capturing New Orleans and it's love for food and people! I bought 4 books to give as Christmas gifts! Thank you for a wonderful keepsake.

Recipient of the 2006 Gourmand Award, the "Ruby Slippers Cookbook" is an impressive compilation of Creole and Cajun recipes showcasing the kind of cuisine that made New Orleans famous. But author Amy Cyrex Sins offers even more as she also includes photographs and stories of a post-Katrina chronicle of the people who had to endure the unendurable, then build back up a city that was almost totally destroyed. It should be noted that a portion of the proceeds of the sale of the "Ruby Slippers Cookbook" will be donated to the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana. With recipes ranging from Crawfish Boil; Oyster and Artichoke Soup for a Really Large Crowd!; and Sweet Potato Ravioli; to Strawberry and Spinach Salad; Peanut Butter Fudge; and Drago's Grilled Oysters, "Ruby Slippers Cookbook" is an impressive and highly recommended culinary tribute to the spirit and cuisine of the people of Louisiana in general, and New Orleans in particular!

I love this cookbook. Several of the recipes I have made are smothered cabbage, jambalaya, red beans & rice, and black eyed peas. All of these recipes are great! These are all foods I have eaten and cooked all my life and these are my new favorite recipes for them. This is also a nice cookbook to look at. The photographs and layout are very nice.

This book was carefully put together to give the flavor of New Orleans Cooking plus lots of scenes after Katrina, a City altering event for the people of New Orleans.

Ruby Slippers is far more than an ordinary cookbook. Written after Katrina, this book brings back many receipes lost in Katrina as well as many stories and experiences are shared regarding the storm and the cleanup efforts. This book is a treasure for anyone, from or having lived in the New Orleans/Gulf Coast area.
