Probably the most cherished of all New Orleans cookbooks, the Antoine's Restaurant has continued to delight both casual cooks as well as hard-core culinary enthusiasts and writers for over 25 years.
Antoine's is the oldest and most famous restaurant in New Orleans, and the extensive menu, of which near all dishes are included in the cookbook, lists both well known and obscure creations of the restaurant that were first served to the public at Antoine's. It is not often understood that dishes that are well known, such as Oysters Rockefeller, Oysters Bienville, Gumbo, Shrimp Remoulade, and Chicken Creole were all first served at Antoine's. The recipes are pure and authentic, true to the classic cuisine of New Orleans, and that is Creole Cuisine.
For over 165 years the same family has served the same food at this unique American institution. There is only one Antoine's, and there is only one Antoine's Cookbook.
Written by the former 5th generation proprietor of the restaurant, Roy F. Guste, Jr., New Orleans premier Creole Culinary Historian, this cookbook speaks history and food in a way that is unmatched in other cookbooks. And this new edition is stunning. All color, hard-back edition, every page a visual as well as culinary delight.
