Lucy “LuLu” Buffett, sister to Jimmy Buffett and owner of LuLu’s Destin and LuLu’s Gulf Shores restaurants, has released her second cookbook Gumbo Love: Recipes for Gulf Coast Cooking, Entertaining, and Savoring the Good Life. It’s partially an account of her life and includes signature dishes from her restaurants, as well as old family recipes from her childhood.  Gumbo Love follows her first cookbook which is titled Lulu’s Kitchen: A Taste of the Gulf Coast Good Life.

For those that love adventurous cooking and pure Americana, the new book, Gumbo Love by Lucy “Lulu” Buffett is a must. The book is filled with pictures of the Gulf Coast and mouthwatering foods. This book not only teaches you how to master the tastes of the Gulf Coast, you are given a recipe for creating a “bright life and happy kitchen.”  Readers will find recipes for gumbos, deep fried favorites, vegetables, salads, snacks and dips, and desserts. Some of the great recipes you will find in the book, include Cajun-Creole stew, True Cajun Gumbo, Cuban-Style Shrimp Creole, Daddy’s Fried Chicken, Silver Queen Corn Salad, Southern Tres Leches, Spicy Shrimp Ceviche, Watermelon and Feta Cheese Salad,  Creole Seasoning, Shrimp Stock, among many others. The book also includes a section of cocktails and mocktails including some inspired by the rivalry of Alabama and Auburn.

If you live here or are visiting the Emerald Coast of Florida and haven’t checked out our local LuLu’s in Destin, you should stop by.  They have free live music most nights at the waterfront restaurant, lots of white sand to play in before and after your meal, and they host many special events throughout the year so you aways have a go-to when a holiday is coming up and you haven’t decided where to hang out with family and friends.  You won’t regret it, as the picture clearly shows!
