Gumbo Love with Lucy Buffett, Thurs., July 20, 5 pm

Join us Thurs., July 20, 5 pm as Lucy Buffett tells the stories behind the recipes in her new cookbook Gumbo Love (Grand Central, hb., 336 pp., $30).

Since she was a young girl, Lucy has believed in the power of gumbo–the stirring, the transformation of the roux, the simple ingredients cooking up into something much better than just the sum of its parts. It’s only fitting that she signs her name with “Gumbo Love.” Her new cookbook is a labor of love that includes recipes from all over the Gulf Coast. The dishes incorporate Caribbean, Cajun, Cuban, Mexican, Old Florida, and Creole influences. Through her collection of recipes Lucy proves that the Gulf Coast has its own distinct flavors and traditions that make it a treasured culinary destination in its own right.
Incorporating stories from Lucy’s childhood growing up in Mobile, Alabama, adventures traveling the seas as a cook, time spent working as a chef in New Orleans, and her philosophy of relaxation, gratitude, and seizing the day, this cookbook entertains and inspires as it serves up recipe after recipe, each tastier than the last.
