The Delta Queen Cookbook: The History and Recipes of the Legendary Steamboat

  • The world's last authentic overnight wooden steamboat, the Delta Queen cruised America s inland waters from 1927 through 2008, offering passengers breathtaking views, luxury accommodations, rousing entertainment, and southern-style feasts. For over eighty-two years, chefs in the small galley served memorable meals from fried chicken and crawfish en croute to strawberry shortcake and beignets. The Delta Queen Cookbook brings the Delta Queen s story to life with an engaging historical narrative and over 125 recipes prepared by the steamboat s former chefs during their tenures in the cookhouse.
