A delightful book with excellent recipes . . .
-Mimi Sheraton, New York Times
Hugely influential for me and my budding culinary peers of the time . . . both [Mitcham] and his books were fascinating depositories of recipes, recollections, history, folklore and illustrations, drawing on his abiding love for humble, working-class ethnic food of the area.
Creole Gumbo is more than a cookbook. It is a history book, a music lesson and a personality profile of great jazzmen.
