New Orleans Seafood Cookbook

New Orleans Seafood Cookbookby Ralph Brennan

CLICK HERE to purchase direcly from the authors website

Any visitor to New Orleans has surely tasted and loved a seafood gumbo, a shrimp remoulade, or any number of the innovative seafood dishes turned out nightly by the city’s talented cadre of creative restaurant chefs. Now, home cooks and chefs everywhere can bring these vibrant flavors home, thanks to third-generation restaurateur, Ralph Brennan, and his culinary team, who have created the definitive guide to New Orleans seafood with their new cookbook, Ralph Brennan’s New Orleans Seafood Cookbook. Four years in the making (including a nine-month hiatus in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina), this beautiful, full-color cookbook was created by the perfect storm of Louisiana talent including Ralph Brennan, his five talented chefs (representing Red Fish Grill, BACCO, Ralph’s on the Park, and Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen), veteran writer and editor Gene Bourg, and acclaimed photographer Kerri McCaffety.

Ralph Brennan’s New Orleans Seafood Cookbook is set apart from other seafood-focused cookbooks by a section called “A Seafood Cook’s Manual.” This comprehensive guide to Gulf seafood covers everything from finfish, crabs, crawfish, shrimp, oysters, frog legs, and even alligator. Brennan and his staff also provide extensive tips and advice, and illustrated step-by-step instructions on handling, storing, and preparing raw seafood. A complete list of premier local and national vendors of seafood, spices, condiments, and cocktails is included to provide home chefs with the key ingredients needed to create the authentic flavors and tastes of New Orleans.               

For regions and seasons in which typical New Orleans fare is unavailable, the book provides recommendations on substituting regional specialties native to the home cook’s territory. This novel approach allows home cooks to combine the flavors of New Orleans with the freshest, local ingredients— a time-honored principle of Ralph Brennan’s kitchens.
