Absolutely A la Carte: Recipes and Stories from a Southern Bistro and Gift Shop in the Midst of the Mississippi Delta packages the stories, wit, passion, and humor found in running one of downtown Cleveland's best-loved lunch spots and gift shops, A la Carte Alley.
The recipes are simple yet elegant, embellished with tip-filled, chatty sidebars.
Cooks of every skill level will relish make-ahead casseroles from the early take-out business. The book also appropriately showcases catfish, a Delta culinary icon. Specialties pair with appetizers, pasta, sandwiches, quiche, salads and soups to offer a stylish, updated glimpse of today's Delta food and cooking.
