GUMBO By Dale Curry, University of North Carolina $18
Curry has filled this slim book with mouth-watering recipes, not only for Gumbo, its Pièce de résistance, but other delectables as well: Sauce Piquant, Crawfish Etouffee, Oyster Rockefeller and more.
But Gumbo, with authentic Louisiana flavor, is king here and the many varieties you’ll choose from, you’ll soon be making in your own kitchen. Bon appetit..
