One of the world's most unusual and exciting cooking styles, New Orleans Creole cookery melds a fantastic array of influences: Spanish spices, tropical fruits from Africa, native Choctaw Indian gumbos, and most of all, a panoply of French styles, from the haute cuisine of Paris to the hearty fare of Provence.
Assembled at the turn of the twentieth century by a Crescent City newspaper, The Picayune, this volume is the bible of many a Louisiana cook and a delight to gourmets everywhere. Hundreds of enticing recipes include fine soups and gumbos, seafoods, all manner of meats, rice dishes and jambalayas, cakes and pastries, fruit drinks, French breads, and many other delectable dishes. A wealth of introductory material explains the traditional French manner of preparing foods, and a practical selection of full menus features suggestions for both everyday and festive meals.

Established in 1837 by Francis Lumsden and George Wilkins Kendall, this newspaper published in New Orleans is now called the Times-Picayune after a merger with a rival paper, the New Orleans Times-Democrat, in 1914. Its original price was a Spanish coin equivalent to $.0625, a “picayune.” Today, the paper is part of Advance Publications, owned by the Newhouse family.
