This is one of the classics of Louisiana cooking. Every one has it and uses it down here. I remember it as a chilld learning to cook in New Orleans. I just bought a new clean one to replace the one that drowned.
Some of these recipes are really dated, very fifties, but interesting to read. Many are authentic 19th century Creole cooking, making this a great historical document for you REALLY hardcore foodies. And there's plenty of old fashioned healthy slow food that stands the test of time. Pair it with Charleston Reciepts and you have a food anthropology seminar... (another Junior League book from the Carolinas)
Notice I say Creole? "Cajun" was something completely different, different culture, different parts of the state. It's now a marketing term that has no respect for the
differences in styles, unfortunately- but this book predates that.
The River Road is about big cities and plantations; this is the French/ African/ native foods fusion that defines Creole. And a lot of very odd cocktails and punch ideas.
A great read and a great working book.
My mother swore by the River Road Recipes series of cookbooks. I had countless meals of delicious Louisiana foods, from etoufee to jambalaya. Now, in my own kitchen a thousand miles away, I cook from this cookbook. The recipes are easy to prepare and delicious to eat. The only problem I have encountered is difficulty finding specific ingredients. But these are easy to replace, and the recipe does not suffer much.
If you want to spice up your cooking and recreate some of the south's greatest cuisine in your kitchen, this cookbook will get you well on your way.
Let the good times roll!

Love the book, but the spine is broken at the top and bottom. Shrink wrap camouflaged the issue so maybe the shipper didn't know. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
