From beloved icon, musician, and “godmother of soul” (New York Times), Patti LaBelle, the celebratory anniversary edition of LaBelle Cuisine. First published more than twenty years ago, these comfort food favorites are back, along with a few new delicious delights that will bring joy and flavor to the family table.
Patti LaBelle’s illustrious career spans four decades. She is a New York Times bestselling author, a two-time Grammy Award–winning singer, and a three-time Emmy nominee. She is adored around the world by millions of fans of her music and her cooking. She is also a humanitarian who devotes much of her time and talent to charities too numerous to list and is the recipient of several honorary degrees. Ms. LaBelle resides in Philadelphia.
For Patti, cooking is about love. Taught by the great Southern cooks in her family—her mother, father, and aunts Hattie Mae and Joshia Mae—Patti LaBelle has kept these family heirlooms close to her heart. Wherever Patti goes, so do her electric frying pans and bottles of hot sauce. While touring on the road, she would often go back to her hotel room and whip up a meal for her band or celebrity visitors. At home during the holidays, at family gatherings, or just after a dazzling performance, Patti likes nothing more than to head for her kitchen and cook her Geechee Geechee Ya Ya Gumbo, Pass-It-On Pot Roast, or Burnin’ Babyback Ribs. These recipes and more are included here, along with Patti’s most memorable anecdotes of adventures with famous friends and good times with her family.
LaBelle Cuisine first debuted in 1999. Now, more than twenty years later, Patti has revived this classic cookbook in its entirety, adding several bonus recipes new to this edition. With over a hundred of Patti’s favorite recipes— including Say-My-Name Smothered Chicken and Gravy, Fierce Fried Corn, and Aunt Hattie’s Scrumptious Sweet Tater Bread—LaBelle Cuisine has the recipes you’ll want to cook, eat, and share with friends.
