Reseña del editor

From the inception of Dooky Chases Restaurant in 1941, the establishment has functioned as a gathering place for the black political community of New Orleans, with the incomparable Leah Chase at the center of it all. As life for blacks gradually began to change, the restaurant became a hub of political activity during the Civil Rights movement of the 60s. Chase attributes the initial popularity of the new Dooky Chase to a change in her gumbo recipe, insisting, It wasnt until I changed the whole menu to Creole that I really got acceptance from everybody. She originally tried to gain patrons by serving dishes such as jambalaya, fried chicken, shrimp, and oystersfoods that blacks wouldnt normally eat at homebut eventually changed the entire menu. Inventive as well as traditional Creole dishes are the mainstay of Chases repertoire. B.L.T. Soup, Bushalini, Stewed Tripe with Pigs Feet, Grillades, Squirrel Pie, Low-Sodium Creole Red Kidney Beans, Stuffed Onions, and Old-Fashioned Bread Pudding have all graced the tables of Dooky Chase.

Biografía del autor

Leah Chase started out at the age of eighteen working in a laundry in the French Quarter, but she soon found a job at the Colonial Restaurant on Chartres Street. In 1946, she married Dooky Chase Jr. and shortly after entered his familys restaurant business, which would grow into the beloved Dooky Chases Restaurant. Over the years, as Chases expertise and popularity grew, she was able to exert more influence upon the cuisine and atmosphere of the restaurant, marrying her down-home sensibilities with the Creole food she loved.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas This is one cookbook that should be in everyone's kitchen. 25 de noviembre de 1998

Formato: Tapa dura
I have lived in New Orleans all my life and have used these recipes. I can say that they are authenic "Dooky Chase" cuisine. My family and I would dine there as often as we could and we were never disappointed, everything was always delicious. Using these recipes has brought back very fond memories. I lost my original copy in transit from New Orleans, so now that I am living in San Diego, Im ordering a brand new copy. "Thanks You very much, Leah. You and your wonderful cuisine will always be remembered".

After watching Leah and Ron on the Discovery Channel, I had to own this book. The receipes are the same as I use in my kitchen, but with a little more finesse. Just love it.

As an official honorary citizen of New Orleans, I have enjoyed many a meal at Dooky Chase. Since I live in Los Angeles I was delighted to be able to get some of Mrs Chase's wonderful recipes. They are practical, easy to read, and absolutely delicious--though of course no one can duplicate her particular genius by themselves.

I also loved reading her anecdotes of the restaurant and the stories behind some of the recipes. I think the "culture" around a cuisine is a major part of the pleasure.

Leah Chase is major figure in our country's heritage. I mean it. The book is a delight.

I just ordered this book and if it is anything like her restaurant, then this should be a great book. I visited her restaurant in May 2005 and I had the best catfish po'boy, red beans & rice, and jambalaya. Her husband "Dookie" was there and he asked me where I was from. I told him Chicago and he told me stories about Ramsey Lewis and when he use to tour with different bands. He was the most pleasant person to talk to and he walked me out to my car when the order was complete. I will not go back to New Orleans until they rebuild Dooky Chase. The food is worth the drive to New Orleans and the hospitality is among the best of any city that I have traveled.

This book is truly a gem. Its 200 polished recipes bring back many happy memories. Reportedly, this famous restaurant is only open 4 days during the week from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Closed on weekends. Perhaps Mrs. Chase, now age 89, is finally sloiwing down. Apparently, the current Executive Chef is one of her great-grandsons, a MBA/Accountant who also graduated from Le Cordon Bleu Paris. If Mrs. Chase retires altogether, it's anyone's guess what will become of the iconic Dooky Chase Restaurant after its valiant recovery from devastation by Hurricane Katrina. Mrs. Chase lost her home in the storm as well and was relegated to a dismal FEMA trailer until matters improved. Glad I bought this wonderful cookbook with its great modern artwork and I look forward to making many of its treasured recipes.
