This cookbook not only has great recipes, but the photography of the food and of the area is outstanding. The history of the area that is provided in the cookbook provides answers to questions about the origins of our traditions. I reviewed the recipes and they are among the top recipes of the area, including some from well known restaurants that were a delightful suprise (Superior's Queso). A variety of excellent recipes are provided, from TexMex to authenic Cajun. The crawfish corn soup (chowder) is wonderful. This cookbook would be a welcomed gift for someone who once lived in the area as well as for us natives who are still here.
This is a beautiful book that not only has great recipes but also has beautiful pictures of life in Shreveport-Bossier! The proceeds from the sale of this cookbook go to fund community events supported by the JLSB. My favorite recipe is the Chipolte Prawns with Goat Cheese Polenta which is a recipe straight from local favorite restaurant Bella Fresca! It is one of many "secret" recipes that are shared in this great text. Also, try the cranberry salsa, herbed tomatoes, and turtle candy. Enjoy!
The book not only has wonderful new recipes but it has a lot of history about Louisiana traditions in the copy. It is a very good book to read as well as to use for the recipes. It is a beautiful book that could easily be a coffee table book because the pictures are so wonderful. For cooking it has some difficult as well as easy recipes. I especially like the shrimp and grits casserole and the turnip green casserole.
Mardi Gras to Mistletoe was a well-received gift and a great addition to my lady friend's cookbook collection. I have enjoyed the recipes she has used to prepare a number of fabulous meals. The photographs add visual appeal and a wonderful touch to a collection of mouth-watering recipes that add flavor to any occasion. Mardi Gras to Mistletoe is sure to inspire whether a novice or a well-seasoned cook. It is a must have. Mardi Gras to Mistletoe: A Cookbook of Festive Favorites from the Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier
This is a great book with a unique arrangement. The recipes are organized by month. It is a great way to look for ideas for food that are specific to the time of year. Each chapter also highlights history and events about the area specific to the month.
Mardi Gras to Mistletoe is filled with terrific recipes and great photos reflecting local dishes, traditions and celebrations of Shreveport, LA. As with any Junior League cookbook, the quality is apparent; a beautiful, glossy, photo-cover, full-page interior photos, and recipes tried and true!
