Rich in tradition, Dooky Chase Restaurant is a New Orleans landmark widely recognized for its fine Creole food. Leah Chase has successfully grafted her country roots, both in ethics and food, to those of the Crescent City, while remaining true to the tenets of Creole cuisine. She includes some 200 tasty recipes on everything from breads and soups, to meats and poultry, to scrumptious desserts.
The Dooky Chase Cookbook is spiced with exquisite works from the Afro-American art collection which hangs in the restaurant dining room, along with colorful stories that reflect Mrs. Chase's Creole heritage, document the origin of various recipes, and recount many of the restaurant's traditions.
