Last minute gift idea

Still looking for ideas for a Christmas gift? Got a person on your list who likes to cook or eat?

I just picked up a copy of Cooking Up A Storm - Recipes Lost to Katrina at the Camellia City Farmers' Market and it's a treasure trove of old New Orleans recipes. Compiled by TP food editor and cookbook author Judy Walker and my favorite Louisiana cook Marcelle Bienvenu, this book is chock full of recipes that appeared in the Times Picayune.

WWNO does a short story on the cookbook at this link.

Judy Walker details the painstaking work that was involved in formulating this book here.

You can puchase the book here at the TP bookstore. Amazon is currently out of stock.

It's available at Octavia books or Borders in Metairie.
