    This is the best compilation of good, every-day cooking and signature treats that every southern Louisianan family knows and loves. I even found a spot-on recipe for my late aunt's infamous Floating Island that no one in my family has been able to replicate. This is one of the books that I actually treasure and will go back to again and again.

    I used to live in Biloxi, MS up until Hurricane Katrina. My family was lucky and we didn't lose hardly anything, not even recipies. But I bought this book after skimming it and really enjoying not only the recipes, but the story behind it. It's definitely has authentic food from the New Orleans/Cajun area. I recommend this very much. I used to live in Biloxi, MS up until Hurricane Katrina. My family was lucky and we didn't lose hardly anything, not even recipies.

    I received this as a going away gift from my dear Louisiana friends. It will be treasured in my home for years to come and I hope to make all the recipes one day. Love Louisiana and this one has a special connection to the memories, stories, devastation and rebirth of New Orleans in the years after Katrina.

    I love this cookbook. I've tried several of the recipes and they've all become classics that I've made over and over again. I love this cookbook. I've tried several of the recipes and they've all become classics that I've made over and over again.

    This one gets 5 stars since I found a BBQ Shrimp recipe I lost years ago in it and am so happy to be able to cook that dish again! Great recipes throughout but you have to try the BBQ recipe!

    A solid cookbook. It would get five stars, except that neither of the two jambalaya offerings involve a roux and the shrimp and crawfish fettuccine recipe calls for Velveeta.
