Galatoire's Cookbook by Melvin Rodrigue

Nestled in the heart of the French Quarter, among the stately townhouses and ornate iron balconies, you’ll find New Orleans’ favorite restaurant. A century after opening its doors, Galatoire’s has become a time-honored New Orleans tradition that draws devoted customers again and again to mark their special occasions. Visitors come from far and wide, knowing that the food will be sublime and the atmosphere warm and inviting.

Galatoire’s Cookbook captures the essence of this storied establishment, with more than 140 recipes for its signature dishes. The restaurant’s unparalleled reputation begins with its emphasis on elegant, locally inspired fare. Anchored in the French Creole tradition, the cuisine of Galatoire’s reflects the bounty of regional seafood, from briny oysters to sweet crawfish; and the family recipes elevate fresh produce, poultry, and game to new levels with sauces and spices that lend unique flavor to each dish.
