This second cookbook from Leah Chase—now in paperback—contains reflections on life, business, family, and friends, with the recipes that bring them all together. There are special menus from organizations that have gathered at the Dooky Chase Restaurant in New Orleans for years, “off the menu” specials prepared for customers with special needs or a craving for something different, and a number of classic Creole and gourmet recipes, with every recipe guaranteed to warm the heart and nourish the soul.
