Meet and Eat!
New Orleans, LA, June 8, 2017, 6-8:00PM: Join Garden District Book Shop and Lucy “LuLu” Buffett for a true Southern Coastal-style “Meet & Eat.” We will serve up tastings of LuLu's famous seafood gumbo, raw oysters and a signature cocktail. She will also discuss and sign her book, Gumbo Love: Recipes for Gulf Coast Cooking, Entertaining, and Savoring the Good Life.
Since she was a young girl, Lucy Buffett has believed in the power of gumbo-the stirring, the transformation of the roux, the simple ingredients cooking up into something much better than just the sum of its parts. It's only fitting that she signs her name with "Gumbo Love" and that she makes a living feeding people the most delicious, soul-satisfying food.
Lucy combines over one hundred new recipes with old favorites. She lives by her mother's philosophy: "Life is short-eat dessert first," so the very first chapter is filled with delectable sweets like Classic Southern Pound Cake with Strawberries, Buttermilk Orange Chess Pie, and Salted Butterscotch Blondies.
Since you can't live on dessert alone, you'll find Gulf Coast favorites from Tailgate Shrimp and Crab Dip to Lucy's Signature Summer Seafood Gumbo, and Crab and Corn Fritters, along with dozens of other seafood appetizers and main dishes. And if you tire of seafood, Lucy shares her family favorites like Daddy's Fried Chicken, Beer-Braised Beef Brisket, Southern Fried Creamed Corn, and Greens and Grits.
This book is available in hardcover ($30.00).
