About the Book

While living in Louisiana, Patricia Mitchell ate, studied, and cooked Creole and Cajun foods. She wrote articles about New Orleans restaurants for the Community Standard magazine, and one summer she and her husband Henry operated a small French Quarter restaurant. During her years in New Orleans she began writing her first cookbook.

An Affair of the Heart defines Creole and Cajun cookery, and gives 27 recipes for creating tasty Louisiana-style dishes. This educational and useful volume is an excellent choice for all “food fans.”
