Taste of Treme: Recipe for Red Beans and Rice


I’ve reviewed a lot of cookbooks but Taste of Treme has been one of my favorites!  Sometimes I feel like the recipes in some cookbooks are just the same ol’ recipes I already know.  This is not that cookbook.  It is full of Cajun dishes – so far from my southern recipes it was like visiting a new culture!  Taste of Treme includes Creole and Cajun recipes from Treme – a New Orleans neighborhood that was the birthplace of jazz.

The unique thing about this book is that it is filled with information about the culture of Treme and all of New Orleans.  I literally read it from cover to cover THEN I went back and flagged recipes! ;)

This recipe for Louis’s Red Beans and Rice will give you a taste of what you’ll find in the book. This was the first recipe I made from the cookbook for my family and it was a winner. I used to make red beans and rice from a packet (either Zataran’s or Lipton’s) and am thrilled that I can now make it from scratch!

You can purchase Taste of Treme from Amazon right now for just $14.29 (it was originally $21.95).  It is a hardcover cookbook – and will be your go to for Cajun cuisine!
