SUMMARY

"The time is now ripe for a new 'Almanach des Gourmands,' and the following collected recipes, with their prestige of great names, including what is best in the Creole and American cuisine, are introduced, with the modest hope that they may prove to both public and publisher a source of rich, practical benefit." --from the prefaceFirst published by the thirty-two ladies of the Christian Woman's Exchange in 1885, Creole Cookery is an exhaustive collection of Creole recipes, the second volume of its kind to be printed in New Orleans. Reprinted here in its original format, Creole Cookery serves as both a historical reference to the foods and habits of the day as well as a usable recipe book for modern-day kitchens. Many of the recipes are used for cooking demonstrations in the open-hearth kitchen at the Hermann-Grima House in New Orleans' French Quarter. All of the recipes contained in this volume are Creole favorites and standbys, including okra soup, parsnip fritters, onion custard, boiled trout, stuffed eggplants, bewitched beef, and fried tomatoes. Over 150 cake recipes exemplify the Southern sweet tooth, and there are ample recipes for shellfish, puddings, meats, preserves, ices, breads, pickles, and more. To read this recipe book is to step back in time and delight in the language, attitudes, and customs of the late-nineteenth century and to appreciate the dedication of the members of the Woman's Exchange in compiling such a comprehensive volume. (Back Flap)Founded in 1881 to help women in need, the Woman's Exchange has been a vital part of New Orleans throughout its history. Its raison d'etre, then and now, has been to serve the community. Later, they changed their mission to reflect education and historic preservation. In the 1960s they transformed the Hermann-Grima House from a boarding house into a museum dedicated to illustrating life in the "Golden Age" of New Orleans. In 1996, the organization acquired the home of famed architect James Gallier, Jr. The Hermann-Grima and Gallier Historic Houses are committed to research, education, and the preservation of New Orleans' culture. This reprint is a joint project of the Hermann-Grima/Gallier Historic Houses and the Historic New Orleans Collection.Christian Women's Exchange Staff is the author of 'Creole Cookery ', published 2006 under ISBN 9781589803428 and ISBN 1589803426.
