New Orleans Cuisine

My Creole & Cajun Recipe Page

This is my blog dedicated to New Orleans & Louisiana cooking! I'll give links to great Creole & Cajun recipes and sites, as well as some of my own recipes. I love talkin' New Orleans, food and otherwise! Incidentally, I'm from Detroit. Go Figure. Lets just say I figured out "what it means, to miss New Orleans" and this site helps ease the pain.

Prime by Poppy Z. Brite

I just finished the novel Prime by Poppy Z. Brite, which is the follow up to Liquor. I loved both books, she really captures what it is like to work in a restaurant, all of the pleasures, frustrations, and unpleasantries. These novels are a foodies dream, both set in New Orleans in a restarant where the main ingredient in every dish is laced with Liquor, which is also the restaurants name, run by Rickey and G-Man. The main ingredients in these novels are Food and New Orleans, two things I can't get enough of, obviously. Apparently she is working on a 3rd Rickey and G-Man novel, I'll be waiting. Make sure you read these on a full stomach, you'll be standing at the fridge after a couple of chapters.

Also, a new post at Cook's Journal, Homemade Flour Tortillas; I've been on a real Southwest and Mexican food kick lately!
