Kit Wohl: New Orleans Classic Creole Recipes

Nov 1 2014 1:00 pm
Nov 1 2014 3:00 pm

Saturday, November 1st

1-3PM 

 

Fifty straightforward recipes with lush photography provide an authentic taste of Creole cuisine. These are the benchmarks of New Orleans' city-style dining as opposed to country-style Cajun cooking. Creole cuisine is the delectable, freewheeling legacy of a celebrated, storied city. It is the most refined of America's regional cooking styles and proves that flavor is our universal language. Recipes have evolved through three centuries of New Orleans cooking, drawn from Spanish and French settlers, settlers from Africa, the Caribbean, Italy, Ireland and Germany. Each cook contributed techniques, seasonings and recipes, modified to make use of New Orleans' bounty, creating Creole cuisine.

The chefs of Galatoire's, Antoine's, Arnaud's, Mr. B's Bistro, Café Reconcile, Commander's Palace, and Upperline have provided iconic recipes such as Shrimp Creole, Sausage and Chicken Gumbo, and Pot au Feu, and sides such as Cheese Grits, Fried Green Tomatoes with Shrimp Remoulade, and Crabmeat Ravigote. Sweet endings include classics such as Bananas Foster, Beignets, and Pralines. 

Kit Wohl signs her book, New Orleans Classic Creole Recipes. 

This book is available in hardcover ($16.95).

If you are unable to attend, you must call the book shop to order signed books.

The Vines: The dark history of Spring House, a beautifully restored plantation mansion on the outskirts of New Orleans, has long been forgotten. But something sinister lurks beneath the soil of the old estate. After heiress and current owner Caitlin Chaisson is witness to her husband’s stunning betrayal at her birthday party, she tries to take her own life in the mansion’s cherished gazebo. Instead, the blood she spills awakens dark forces in the ground below. Chaos ensues and by morning her husband has vanished without a trace and his mistress has gone mad. Nova, daughter to Spring House’s groundskeeper, has always suspected that something malevolent haunts the old place, and in the aftermath of the birthday party she enlists Caitlin’s estranged best friend, Blake, to help her get to the bottom of it. The pair soon realizes that the vengeance enacted by this sinister and otherworldly force comes at a terrible price.
