First there was The Frank Davis Seafood Notebook, the Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Frank of cooking seafood New Orleans style. Then came Frank Davis Cooks Naturally NAwlins, a full-spectrum cookbook of the true traditions of old New Orleans. Now there is Frank Davis Cooks Cajun, Creole, and Crescent City, all the old and new ethnic, down-home, make-you-slap-your-momma-twice recipes I couldnt squeeze into the last two cookbooks. Fried dishes, grillades, rice dishes, gumbos, game dishes, etouffees, and simmered dishesthere just isnt much left out this time around. Frank Davis serves up all new seafood recipes plus variations on the Cajun Creole canon of cooking. What makes each recipe so unique is the precise, stand-by-your-side, humorous writing style Davis adds to each page. Davis pulls out some of his best homespun creations for this book, like NAwlins Pickled Onions, Old New Orleans Vanilla Ice Cream, Spicy NAwlins Fried Ribs, and Cajun Deep-Fried Breast of Turkey. From these names, one might assume that this books recipes are high in calories and unhealthy, but they arent at all, and thats what sets this cookbook apart from the rest.
Davis adds a wealth of nutritional information and serving tips that make it possible to cook and eat the hearty local cuisine without taking on any weight.
