Kevin Belton's Big Flavors of New Orleans

Kevin Belton, dishes up the culinary history of his city with recipes that provide both down-home comfort and the big flavors he is famous for. He teaches how to make a perfect roux and explains the background of that holiest trinity of Creole cooking–celery, onion, and bell pepper–while offering his spin on the Louisiana classics of gumbo, jambalaya, étouffée, po’boys, and grillades with grits. Chef Belton’s signature dishes like Pecan-Crusted Redfish, Stuffed Mirlitons, Louisiana Boudin-Stuffed Quail, Creole Cottage Pie, and Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce are not to be missed and are well worth the time in the kitchen! Kevin has been recognized as one of the top thirty Louisiana chefs by the American Culinary Federation. Belton explores the distinctive Creole food of New Orleans in his PBS cooking series, New Orleans Cooking with Kevin Belton. He has been a featured chef and guest on numerous food programs including Emeril Live, Ready . . . Set . . . Cook!, Live Love Lunch, Food Fighters, Taste of America, and Eating in the Bayou.
