Part history, part heart, and all delicious, the recipes of the Christ Church
Cathedral Cooking School are as beloved in New Orleans as the institution
itself. Now you can prepare these simple yet savory recipes in your own kitchen
with the Cathedral Cooking School Cook Book, authored by the very
women who built the culinary stronghold from the ground up.
Both the school and its dishes are rich in quality and character. The
institute was originally conceived as a charity fundraiser in 1964 and has since
trained scores of students and contributed thousands of dollars to neighborhood
centers and hurricane relief.
Included in the Cathedral Cooking School Cook Book are
traditional and regional recipes taught during the past ten years in the
nationally known culinary school. From Creole to cocktails, from curry to
custard, the hundreds of dishes are as tasty as they are time-honored. Edited
by Lucy Core and Clara Lyman, the 208-page book divides recipes into fourteen
types of food and includes a section of suggested full-course menus.
The idea behind the Cathedral Cooking School is that cuisine can be both easy
and elegant. Likewise, the editors built their book on the premise that while
cooking should be sophisticated, it should not be complicated.
