This is a wonderful gift for any beer lover or aspiring chef (add in a few Abita pint glasses or a 6-pack and you'll be adored forever), or a great addition to your own personal collection. While there are a few recipes in here that are quite laborious, all the recipes are easy to follow, and no ingredient is too "exotic" to find in your store or order ahead off the internet, (ie Alligator Legs, Andouille, Tasso. You can order those at cajun gocer, etc.)
It has beautiful photography, beer facts and brewing history, and the recipes...Can you say Turbodog Ice Cream? Or Abita Amber Pulled Pork? Seafood beignets, Pot Roast, Warm Potato Salad, Cheddar & Amber Soup, Greens, BBQ shrimp, Cochon de lait, Etouffee, Gumbo...and my favorite, Deep-Fried Beer Braised Short Ribs Po' Boy...All made with Abita Beer! These recipes are fun to make, and delicious to eat. Of course, you get to sample the beers as you make the dish, which is even better!
