Description

Master the art of all the most delectable styles of Louisiana cooking, from Cajun to Creole, Acadiana to down-home New Orleans, in more than 125 easy-to-use recipes.

George Graham—a lifelong Louisianan, a former chef and restaurateur, and now an award-winning food writer and blogger—is a brilliant cook, a warm, funny, and engaging storyteller, and an ace photographer. He brings all these talents alive in Louisiana Table, his second cookbook, following on the heels of his masterful Acadiana Table. George makes Louisiana cooking not just easy for home cooks to learn, but fun and interesting, too.

The recipes range from George's pitch-perfect versions of classic Louisiana dishes to imaginative, brand-new ideas that use the signature flavors of the region's cuisines in utterly new ways. You can start a glorious Louisiana meal with a Corn and Crab Bisque, a Seafood Gumbo, or Mini Bell Peppers Stuffed with Crabmeat. For a main course, why not try a Pork Roast with Apple Pan Gravy, Crisp Chicken Thighs with Creole Jasmine Rice, or a Gulf Coast Pasta Primavera? There are lots of desserts, too, like Praline Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Bounce, and Louisiana-Style Poached Pears, plus sides, sandwiches, cooling drinks, and breakfast and brunch fare.
 
For soul-satisfying everyday dinners with family to amazing weekend feasts with friends, this beautiful book—with more than 100 color photos—brings the intriguing and delicious flavors of Louisiana home, wherever you might live.
