How a 50-year-old community cookbook became a mainstay in almost every Cajun kitchen

By Marie Elizabeth Oliver, The Washington Post (August 14, 2017)

It was always there. Woven into the fabric of almost every cooking memory, every kitchen, of my Louisiana childhood. There,  along with the cast-iron pot, aluminum Magnalites and Chime-O-Matic rice cooker. Its mischievous plastic teeth underbiting the worn-out spiral binding, tattered yellow tabs frayed and curled, stamped with grease stains and reinforced with rubber bands. Four hundred fifty pages of green-inked recipes by the women whose footsteps paced the linoleum floors of the kitchens before us. Read full article and experience the recipes.
