New Orleans celebrates better than any other city. It's our way of doing just about anything. Perfect for gatherings, holidays, Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, and more, this gorgeous cookbook offers more than fifty festive recipes from famous New Orleans restaurants, along with photographs, history, musings, and stories. These classic Crescent City celebration recipes are knockouts for the eye and the taste buds.
These fifty recipes are an invitation to New Orleans-style celebrations with the tastes that enliven any gathering. Contemporary and classic dishes for the city's unique events all come to the party. Festival recipes are a riff on stuffed crawfish bread, crawfish pasta, and meat pies. Consider Mardi Gras served with pots of fried chicken gumbo and jambalaya. For saints' feast days, Chef Emeril Lagasse offers Italian Cookies. Even the other-worldly spirits of New Orleans can feast on Chef John Folse's Death by Gumbo.
Reveillon, St. Patrick's Day, and Seafood Festival menus feature Turducken, Boysie's Eggplant Shrimp, and Redfish on the Halfshell. Gumbo z'Herbs from Dooky Chase's, Blue Crab Beignets from La Petite Grocery, and Creole Onion Soup from Arnaud's delight the senses and the spirit. Desserts shine with Sucr 's shimmering King Cake. The chefs comprise an honor roll of New Orleans' best. From highfalutin to down home, they create the greatest neighborhood food in America. We know this to be true-that's a promise.
