“Anne Butler evokes southern hospitality in her glorious epicurean tour.”
— Bloomsbury Review
“An illustrated gastronomic tour of this area’s society, culture and economics . . . a veritable social history in the guise of a cookbook.”
- Louisiana Life
“A fetching cookbook; no, it’s better than a cookbook.”
Audubon plantation country, the region between Natchez, Mississippi, and Louisiana’s Feliciana parishes, provided the inspiration for artist John James Audubon’s bird masterpieces. Countless visitors still flock to the area to enjoy the natural beauty of its landscape, the grandeur of its plantation architecture, the palpable history of its settlements, and, especially, the delicious bounty of its hospitality. Audubon Plantation Country Cookbook is a collection of heirloom recipes, family legends, historical facts, vintage photographs, and humorous anecdotes from this area that is as rich in cuisine as it is in history.
This cookbook, which was named Best New Cookbook of the Year by Louisiana Life magazine, creates a complete view of life in Audubon plantation country.
