Marshes to Mansions,
This review is from: Marshes to Mansions (Hardcover)
Very good recipes - not too challenging for a home cook. Loved the fact
that there is an index page preceeding each section of the book, i.e.
the index page before the appetizer section lists all appetizer recipes
that follow and the page on which they appear. Another great feature is
throughout the book you will find wonderful cooking tips and information
about various foods as well as interesting facts about Louisiana culture,
geography, and places to visit. Recipes that can be prepared ahead are
marked with clock hands and the words Make ahead at the bottom of the
recipe and at the end of the book there is a page giving substitutions
for ingredients you might not have on hand. But the best feature of
this book are the excellent recipes - a wonderful mix of some old
favorites given a new twist and many new recipes that I have not seen
in the absurdly large number of cookbooks I have collected.
