A delicious love letter to the Gulf Coast’s vibrant food culture.
Incorporating stories from Lucy’s childhood growing up in Mobile, Alabama, adventures traveling the seas as a cook, time spent working as a chef in New Orleans, and her philosophy of relaxation, gratitude, and seizing the day, this cookbook entertains and inspires as it serves up recipe after recipe, each tastier than the last.
Southern Specialties right from the Gulf Coast
If you need any reason to check out Lucy Buffett’s new cookbook, then National Shrimp Day would be it! Fans of Gulf Coast specialties, fruity libations, and flavor-rich dishes won’t want to miss out on the recipes featured in Lucy Buffett’s newest cookbook, GUMBO LOVE. From starters and snacks to deep friend southern favorites to desserts and cocktails you’ll be able to pretend you are on the Gulf Coast no matter where you live.
I shared recipes from Buffett’s previous cookbook LULU’S KITCHEN last summer and am just as excited for this one. This cookbook is thicker than her previous one and the photos shared throughout the pages make me want to jump in the car and revisit our favorite Gulf Coast spots. Any photo that has Lucy Buffett in it shows the happiness oozing out of her. There is no doubt that life is good in the Gulf. What I love about Buffett’s cookbooks is she shares her heart along with her recipes. In each chapter, she shares stories or traditions to give you a bit of background on the recipes she offers. I love that she begins the cookbook with dessert. Buffet states that she is a “lifetime rule breaker…and chooses her rebellions more wisely – like having dessert first.” That is my kind of philosophy on life! There are so many recipes I can’t wait to try, I’ll be working my way through this cookbook all summer.
