This spiral-bound wonder has been a fixture in Southern homes since 1959, its date of publication by the Junior League of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. RIVER ROAD RECIPES has triggered a spate of sequels from the Baton Rouge club, and no small number of cookbooks from other Junior Leagues both within Louisiana and without. But this one is still the best -- or at least the most foundational.
RRR is a great entree to Southern dishes of all kinds, especially Cajun (or "Acadian") and Creole. In this reviewer's opinion, the several pecan-pie recipes alone are worth its cost. Sure, it's dated in some ways: the "men's" section is hilariously oriented to butch, barbecue and bourbon (or the still-popular "longnecks"), shoppers in even large cities outside the South and West are presumed not to have easy access to avocados, and there are lots of cream and high-cholesterol meats in the recipes. BUT: Helpful drawings show the inexperienced cook how to make a roux, and show other fundamentals of this region's cooking. And on the whole, the recipes run from satisfying to glorious.
Seriously, unless you just hate hate hate Southern and specifically Southern Louisianan/New Orleans cooking, this book belongs in your kitchen -- and would make a great present. It's also still surprisingly inexpensive, but expect no photos.
