Like her brother, Jimmy, Lucy Buffett celebrates freedom, relaxation, and seaside decadence in her own art–cooking. This previously self-published book (formerly titled Crazy Sista Cooking) has sold over 70,000 copies without marketing or much trade distribution.
Packed with more than 120 signature recipes from Lucy’s famous Gulf Coast restaurant, LuLu’s, WITH LOVE FROM LULU’S KITCHEN is the next best thing to being there. Tucked inside are humorous stories, and plenty of wit and wisdom from Lucy’s own kitchen. The book features party menus, Buffett Family favorites, and lots of telling it like it is. Renowned novelist Tom McGuane contributes engaging essays that blend smoothly with the spicy dishes and distinctive drinks.
Recipes include soul-satisfying Southern delights like West Indies Salad, Perfect Fried Shrimp, Blackened Grouper Sandwich, Garlic Cheese Grits, Silver Queen Succotash, and Heavenly Fried Crab Claws. And there’s a whole chapter on 25 specialty drinks, including “Bama Breeze” and “LuLu’s Painkiller.”
This revised edition has been updated with a new introduction and headnotes, but still has all of the great recipes from Crazy Sista Cooking.
