Mosquito Supper Club Cookbook

$35.00 USD

The Mosquito Supper Club cookbook is a stunner, I read it like a novel & it brought me a few tears. It's so beautifully written by my friend Melissa Martin & with equally beautiful photographs by Denny Culbert, it's one of my all-time favorites. Makes a lovely gift for anyone or for yourself. Melissa is from Chauvin, a small community in South Lousiana whose land is vanishing and losing ground to water. This book and her restaurant are an ode to her community's cultural traditions; visit her restaurant and with her new cookbook you can now learn her family's recipes and give them a try at home.

What people are saying:

Named a best new cookbook of spring 2020 by bon appétit, Food & Wine, NPR's the splendid table, Eater, Epicurious, and more

“Mosquito supper club . . . Is here to try to prevent the region’s cajun cooking from slowly disappearing. Martin’s as much of a teacher as she is a cook; there’s barely a recipe in here that doesn’t have an extra paragraph of information on ingredient sourcing, prepping, and serving." —Epicurious

"Rejoice in the photographer Denny Culbert’s evocative images and the Chef Melissa Martin’s poetic storytelling. . . . [A] stunner of a cookbook.” —Garden & Gun

“Martin shares the history, traditions, and customs surrounding cajun cuisine and offers a tantalizing slew of classic dishes. . . . Writing in elegant prose, Martin is less concerned with the still-life plating of entrées than she is with painting the landscape of her upbringing.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“With Mosquito supper club, Melissa Martin opens the door into the savory-scented kitchens of Mothers, Aunts, and Sisters. She reveals a world that is rich and complicated, a way of life that is sustaining and unique—and she also mourns what we have already lost and stand to lose yet in this endangered region and culture. This book’s fantastic recipes will fill your belly with bounty, but its stories will thrill your heart while tugging at your soul.” —Ronni Lundy, author of Victuals: An Appalachian Journey, with recipes

“Home cooks will find equal joy in cooking and eating m=Melissa Martin’s unique recipes and in reading about her efforts to preserve and share her native culture.” —Nina Compton, chef and owner, Compère lapin

“Melissa Martin’s ability to evoke a story, a history, and a sense of place through dishes like Velma Marie's oyster soup is a true testament to her love of where she comes from. Mosquito supper club is a stunning tribute to the cajun way of life.” —Kelly Fields, chef and author of the Good Book of Southern Baking
