Todd-Michael St. Pierre captured the flavors of New Orleans in one great cook book. From Char-broiled oysters to Zulu Coconut pie it is all packed into one delicious cookbook. Throughout the book there are several poems that reflect what it is like to live in and to be from New Orleans.

I got it right the first time! Nov. 19 2009
By Alex's wish list - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My fiancee is from New Orleans and can't get cajun/creole cusine where we live. I tried the red beans and rice in the box, the kind from the grocery store and it did not cut it. I received my copy of "A street car named delicious" and found some easy recipes that were easy for me to make. The first recipe I tried was Elysian Fields Old-fashioned chicken stew for Sunday dinner. The recipe was to the point, helpful (the method) part explains HOW to cook it in plain English. It took only 30 minutes to make. I cooked up some rice to go with it and it was all done!

When I tasted it I knew I had hit on something. It was in fact very delicious indeed. You would have thought I spent all day cooking that stew. The whole family absolutely loved it, and I got the thumbs up for authenticity from my fiancee'.
I will recommend this book to anyone who wants to cook authentic cajun/creole cusine.Spice Garden Natural Cajun Seasoning, Hot, 3-Ounce Jar (Pack of 6) I used this seasoning to flavor the chicken.
Love it!
