Booklist Review

The redoubtable Leah Chase weighs in with a new cookbook of the best Creole cooking from her notable New Orleans eatery, Dooky Chase. And Still I Cook0 amply demonstrates why Dooky Chase has been a "must" for gourmets visiting the Crescent City. Her Pork Chop and Oyster Po' Boy brims with satisfying proteins and fats. More unusual Creole fare appears in a recipe for Mrs. Dominique's Oyster Fricassee with its shredded cabbage in spicy gumbo. Introductions to the recipes give the dishes a human context, even in fundamentals such as a Ham Sandwich. Chase's cooking is simple, uncomplicated, and always reflects its Louisiana roots. This is a good complement to Carol Allen's recent biography of this New Orleans grande dame, Listen, I Say Like This0 (2002). --Mark Knoblauch Copyright 2003 Booklist
