In her first cookbook, Chef Toya creates 20 classic New Orleans recipes that embeds the soul of the city in each dish. Her signature dishes like Seafood Gumbo and Oyster Rockefeller Pasta celebrate the rich heritage of the region and its connection to the Gulf Coast. Other recipes like Drunken Cherry Bread Pudding and Cajun Meat Pies stuffed with crawfish show her creative side, as she puts a unique twist on traditional recipes.
As an authority on Cajun and Creole dishes, she brings a fresh and delightful view to New Orleans cooking, one of the greatest food cities in the world. She exemplifies her native city of New Orleans, not just through her cuisine, but with her zest for life and personality in the kitchen.
Chef Toya’s cookbook is the first interactive New Orleans cookbook. For people that purchase the book from the Apple Bookstore, the book will use video clips, enhanced images, pop-ups, and other media to give the reader a more in-depth view into the process.
Whether you’re from New Orleans or visited the city once and feel in love with its culture, this is the cookbook for you. Chef Toya invites you into her home and makes each dish a simple process for you’re to recreate in your kitchen.
