This was not the usual cook book; it was a font of information on the history and culinary tastes of the area. The background information on food and preparation was told in a delightful manner and piqued my interest enough to try most of the recipes. The directions were easy to follow, the results marvelous. I would love to dine in Ms Bluysen's establishment in Paris, and if not that, please publish a book of the local Parisienne recipes.
Having grown up in Louisiana, when I received this book as a gift I was sceptical that I'd find anything interesting or new in it. But what a suprise! Variations on the classic fare (gumbo, jambalaya, etouffee, etc)as well as recipes that seem inspired by our native ingredients such as sweet potato soup proved me wrong. The photographs are beautiful, and the recipes I've tried work.
What a Wonderful Book! I received one as a gift and have given several copies to friends. We have all enjoyed the Beautiful Photos and Spectacular Recipes!
