An all-new edition of the popular regional cookbook, The Great Entertainer features over 500 recipes in fourteen sections, from hors d'oeuvres to desserts. Three unique sections, "Camp Cooking," "Game Dishes," and "Cooking for a Crowd," focus specifically on recipes from the American West, honoring traditions established around campfires and chuck wagons long ago. Beautifully illustrated with magnificent art and artifacts from the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, The Great Entertainer will not only round out any cook's library of American regional cookbooks, but will also be a valuable keepsake from one of the country's finest museums.
My inspiration in making this book was cooking in New Orleans after Katrina. Almost all our workers were from up in the northern states. The cooks were from up there also, so when I got the chance to introduce some good ole down-home country cooking, they liked it. Also you can’t come to New Orleans without eating some Cajun food. I had a lot of fun with some of the dishes—things they had never heard of, and some they had heard of but had never tried, by choice mostly. Our pastor asked me one day if I knew how to cook chitterlings (or chitlins). I suppose you know what this is. It’s the intestines of the hogs prepared as food, better known as the unseen part of the hog. I cooked them, and to my surprise, some liked them, even my husband, who is from Wisconsin. I had many requests for the local recipes, so I decided to put them all together with some of our old family recipes. I have also tried to tell the story of the work of the volunteers and how we appreciate them. To all who gave up their time and money to help people in need, God bless you all. When Katrina came, we asked God, “How much do you love us?” He opened his arms and said, “The whole world full.” And the whole world came. Thank you!
