Myrtle Simms helped her father
start Lafayette, Louisiana's famed Don's Seafood and Steakhouse Restaurant in
1932. Born one of eleven siblings, Mrs. Simms joined the rest of the family in
preparing the plate lunches and dishes that ensured the restaurant's popularity.
Around 1965, Mrs. Simms scaled back
her active participation with the restaurant. She was involved in various
festivals and was active in promoting her family's continuing dedication to the
food industry and Cajun culture.
In Mrs. Simms' Fun Cooking
Guide, Mrs. Simms takes a laid-back approach to cooking and
entertainment. She gives timesaving techniques so cooks can be involved with
their guests and not be tied up in the kitchen. The Creole and Cajun dishes she
delivers are classics and would be a valuable addition to any kitchen
repertoire. The book has also been translated into French and is available under
the title La Joie de Cuisiner de Mme Simms.
