Mme. Begue's Recipes of Old New Orleans Creole Cookery
This is a mouth-watering collection of authentic Creole recipes from one of the world's first celebrity chefs - and inventor of the brunch! In the late 1800s, Elizabeth Begue opened up a small restaurant in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Her food gained such a reputation that during the World's Fair of 1884, people came from all over the world to taste. Mme Begue is also credited with inventing the much-loved tradition of Brunch! Originally published in 1900 from the handwritten notes of Mme. Begue herself, this cookbook offers a mouth-watering collection of absolutely authentic Creole recipes - including turtle soup, crawfish bisque, stuffed tomatoes, veal omelette, and many more.
