A delicious love letter to the Gulf Coast’s vibrant food culture.

Since she was a young girl, Lucy Buffett has believed in the power of gumbo-the stirring, the transformation of the roux, the simple ingredients cooking up into something much better than just the sum of its parts. It’s only fitting that she signs her name with “Gumbo Love” and that she makes a living feeding people the most delicious, soul-satisfying food.
Her new cookbook, GUMBO LOVE, is a labor of love and includes recipes from all over the Gulf Coast. The dishes incorporate Caribbean, Cajun, Cuban, Mexican, Old Florida, and Creole influences. Lucy proves through her collection of recipes that the Gulf Coast has its own distinct flavors and traditions that make it a coastal destination year after year. And with some of the best seafood and produce the country has to offer, the Gulf Coast-beyond just New Orleans-has a vibrant cuisine and culture, making it a treasured culinary destination in its own right.
Lucy combines over one hundred new recipes with old favorites. She lives by her mother’s philosophy: “Life is short-eat dessert first,” so the very first chapter is filled with delectable sweets like Classic Southern Pound Cake with Strawberries, Buttermilk Orange Chess Pie, and Salted Butterscotch Blondies.
Since you can’t live on dessert alone, you’ll find Gulf Coast favorites from Tailgate Shrimp and Crab Dip to Lucy’s Signature Summer Seafood Gumbo, and Crab and Corn Fritters, along with dozens of other seafood appetizers and main dishes. And if you tire of seafood, Lucy shares her family favorites like Daddy’s Fried Chicken, Beer-Braised Beef Brisket, Southern Fried Creamed Corn, and Greens and Grits.

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.
