A brand new cookbook from Lucy Buffett. Here’s the scoop from the publisher:

Updated with a new introduction and amazing photography, the bestselling, self-published cookbook by Lucy Buffett (chef sister of Jimmy Buffett) includes amazing recipes from her destination restaurant in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

Like her brother, Jimmy, Lucy Buffett celebrates freedom, relaxation, and seaside decadence in her own art — cooking. This previously self-published book (formerly titled Crazy Sista Cooking) has sold over 70,000 copies without marketing or much trade distribution.

Packed with more than 120 signature recipes from Lucy’s famous Gulf Coast restaurant, LuLu’S Kitchen is the next best thing to being there. Tucked inside are humorous stories, and plenty of wit and wisdom from Lucy’s own kitchen. The book features party menus, Buffett Family favorites, and lots of telling it like it is. Renowned novelist Tom McGuane contributes engaging essays that blend smoothly with the spicy dishes and distinctive drinks.

Recipes include soul-satisfying Southern delights like West Indies Salad, Perfect Fried Shrimp, Blackened Grouper Sandwich, Garlic Cheese Grits, Silver Queen Succotash, and Heavenly Fried Crab Claws. And there’s a whole chapter on 25 specialty drinks, including “Bama Breeze” and “LuLu’s Painkiller.”

Giveaway: The publisher is offering a copy of LuLu’s Kitchen to one lucky Friend for the Ride winner. For a chance to win, please enter a comment before May 15. Thanks!

  1. Wow! Looking at her website, love how she packed up everything from her restaurant and floated it on a 150 ft. barge, celebratory style, over to her new Gulf location!

    Count me in. I’m a cookbook addict! I used to buy all of my cookbooks, went quite crazy about this quest, really, until I decided might be better with all of the cookbooks I buy to just take them out of the library instead! Sometimes a really popular book keeps me in a queue of 60 or more library patrons!! The anticipation and finally getting the book makes it all worth it!
