Arnaud's Restaurant Cookbook:
New Orleans Legendary Creole Cuisine


"Arnaud's Restaurant Cookbook: Legendary Creole Cuisine," by Kit Wohl
(Pelican Publishing, $27.50) was completely overseen by Wohl. With lavish photography by David G. Spielman, as well as historical photos, it no doubt
will be one of the most attractive cookbooks published locally this year.

The last "Arnaud's Creole Cookbook" was published in 1988. This year is the
25th anniversary of Archie Casbarian's proprietorship of the restaurant, so it
was time for updated recipes and also to mark the anniversary, said Wohl,
who has handled public relations and advertising for the restaurant since
the Casbarians bought it from Germaine Wells. At that time, Wohl "wound
up digging under Mrs. Wells' bed, pulling out boxes and digging out recipes,"
she said with a laugh. "She had all this memorabilia, with menus, recipes,
notes and things."
Wohl said the new cookbook project took four years, much longer than she anticipated.
"We foolproofed it," said executive chef Tommy DiGiovanni of the process.
Wohl had four people "who did nothing but cook for two summers, cooked,
checked, revised and cooked again," she said. "Then Chef Tommy would
come over and taste-test it, to make sure it was dialed in . . . then it went
back to the restaurant, where Tommy had interns or new people test them."

Strawberries Arnaud

Serves 6

1 cup ruby port
1 cup red burgundy-style wine
1/2 orange, sliced
1 lime, sliced
1 whole clove
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 cups vanilla ice cream
3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
Lightly sweetened whipped cream,
for garnish
6 whole, perfect strawberries with stems,
for garnish
Sprigs of fresh mint, for garnish

In a medium saucepan, combine the port and wine and place over
medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then add the orange and lime slices,
the spices and sugar. Return to a boil, then remove from heat and cool
for at least 30 minutes. Strain the sauce. Cover and refrigerate until
serving. (The sauce will keep for up to two weeks.)
To serve, place one scoop of ice cream in each of six champagne glasses. Cover the ice cream with sliced strawberries and drizzle generously with
the port sauce. Add a dollop of whipped cream, a whole strawberry, if desired, and a sprig of fresh mint for show and serve at once.
