Creole cookin'. (What's New? Winter Gear & Food Fest).
With a vast inventory of spices and mixes, the company can start you on your way towards being a bayou master chef, ready to turn out culinary marvels from the recipes in Tony Chachere's various Louisiana recipe books. However, as far as we're concerned, the best way to start is with a pair of cleverly contrived boxed sets: the Creole Cooking Kit and Creole Frying Kit.
The Cooking Kit ($69.95) consists of a seven-quart cast-iron covered Dutch oven; boxes of Creole Jambalaya, Louisiana Dirty Rice, New Orleans Red Beans and Rice, and Creole Gumbo mixes; and containers of Chachere's Original Seasoning, Instant Roux, and Instant White and Brown Gravy mixes. The Frying Kit ($39.95) provides a two-and-a-half-quart cast-iron fryer with a wire fry basket and thermometer; Seasoned Fish Fry, Crispy Creole Hush Puppy, and Crispy Creole Fish Fry mixes; Shredded Coconut Batter; and Original Creole Seasoning. Both kits come with a cookbook, "The Basics of Creole Cooking?to get you off to a rousing start.
