The Picayune Creole Cookbook was a definitive collection of recipes that were considered Creole. The introduction provides a glimpse into the foods and traditions that were such an integral part of New Orleans at the time. The menus at the back of the book show the standards of the table in the city, and go into detail for the special occasions. The recipes show the range of food that was available in New Orleans, including gumbos with all sorts of different vegetables and meats, seafood, rice dishes and much more. French techniques can be seen in many of the recipes, but there are also clear ties to Italy, Germany, and Native American preparations.
