The Savoy Kitchen front cover book artwork

We’re excited to unveil the cover for our next book, ‘The Savoy Kitchen – A Family History of Cajun Food’, and it’s ace! Lovingly shot and designed by Joby Catto at Anti Limited, it sums up Sarah and the Savoy family in one still life photograph.

There’s loads of details to spot, and when you read the book you’ll pick up on even more of the references. We hope you like it as much as we do!

Savoy Kitchen promo postcard

We’ve been working hard on a great new project, due to hit the shops in October 2013. Check out The Savoy Kitchen – A Family History of Cajun Food by Sarah Savoy, the self-proclaimed Queen of white Cajun trash and the latest in a long line of Savoys to fly the flag for Cajun food, music and culture. Daughter of legendary musicians Marc and Ann Savoy, she grew up in the heart of Cajun country and learned her culture around the kitchen table.

In The Savoy Kitchen she brings together recipes from three generations: from her own fresh take on Gumbo and many other Cajun classics to her father’s Courtbouillon cooked over an open fire and her grandma’s Fig Drop Cookies.

Part-cookbook, part memoir, The Savoy Kitchen is illustrated with photographs by her sister, Gabrielle Savoy, and illustration by Jen Collins, which capture perfectly contemporary Cajun life as lived by one of its foremost musical families.
