Editorial Reviews

Review

"My wife, Gloria, and I were lucky enough to enjoy the fine cooking of Eula Mae when we visited Avery Island a few years ago. Her food is full of flavor, meant to be shared with friends." --Jacques Pepin, chef, cookbook author, and public television cooking show host

"Eula Me Dore is a living American treasure. Her beautiful storytelling and delicious menus take the cook on a memorable adventure to Avery Island, Louisiana--her beloved 'Garden of Eden.' I recommend that you take the trip with Eula Mae to America's Cajun Country!" --Art Smith, author of Back to the Table: The Reunion of Food and Family


About the Author

The late Eula Mae Dore (1929-2009) grew up on a farm in the small rural community of Coteau in southern Louisiana. Her mother died when she was only ten, and since her father worked sunup to sundown on his farm, she became the cook for this family of five, teaching herself to cook Cajun specialties and learning to make the most of local ingredients. In 1949 she married Walter \u201cMoNeg\u201d Dor\u00e9, who worked for the McIlhenny Company, producer of Tabasco Brand Pepper Sauce. Soon the couple was put in charge of the Tabasco Company Commissary on Avery Island, which sold everything from bread to detergent and serviced both the McIlhenny Company employees and the McIlhenny family. It was Eula Mae who came up with the idea of selling sandwiches at lunchtime, and they soon became legendary, drawing businessmen from the mainland eight miles away. Besides cooking and managing the commissary, Eula Mae was often called on to prepare food for Walter McIlhenny, late owner of the McIlhenny Company. He often asked her to cook for parties and brunches, preferring her down-home cooking to that of his personal chef.
