As a former New Orleanian, I thoroughly enjoyed this cookbook. Although it's a little dated, if you love New Orleans, this is for you. Heck, you're never a former New Orleanian. It will always be home and this book makes me feel like I'm just returning in a day or two! Recipes are very good.

Having lived in New Orleans in the later 80's, Central Grocery was one of my favorite places to have lunch; so thought it would be nice to have this Cookbook. After receiving in mail last week, I made the Bread Pudding w/ the Lemon Whiskey Sauce, it is delicious! :) There is a homemade pasta recipe I can't wait to try..

A few months ago, I was dwelling on the ten year Katrina anniversary. One of the items I lost in the flood can never be replaced - my family recipes. Growing up in a Sicilian family, we spent a lot of time gathering and eating some delicious food. I took this good food for granted, Now, fast forward ten years. I believe that the reason that I cannot find anything like what I had growing up is due to the fact that when the Sicilians immigrated to New Orleans, their fantastic cooking was fused with the Creole cooking native to the area. This style of cooking is hard to find, and it is called Sicilian Creole, or Italian Creole, found in New Orleans. It finally dawned on me a few years ago when I stumbled upon a website while doing some research. Of course, this is just my theory, but it seems like a sound one.

What the author has done is chronicle this type of cooking. As soon as I opened the book and flipped through the recipes, I knew that I had stumbled upon a gem. I felt as though my own grandmother was telling me the recipes, standing over me. Mrs. Tusa walks you through the recipes, step by step, no detail is missed. She gives helpful hints along the way. This is good food, the way that food should be enjoyed. I recently prepared "X-Lent Oven Stew" for my parents and everybody loved it. Simply delicious. The technique in preparation really produces quality. Other recipes for Yams in Lemon Sauce, Okra and Corn, Genoa Pot Roast...so good. The book was written in 1980, but the recipes are classics and timeless and span generations. The recipes are down-to-earth, everyday recipes.

I would like to thank the author for this book, it finally gave me some closure to the loss of the recipes that I grew up with.
