Over the course of its 300-year history, New Orleans’ cuisine has been one of its greatest gifts to the world. Now, as we celebrate the city’s 300th birthday and WWL-TV’s 60th anniversary, our gift to you is a free e-cookbook, with seafood and meatless recipes for Lent.

Click here to download the free cookbook as well as the second edition, on Global Cuisine.

This edition focuses on seafood and meat-free dishes, perfect for this time of year when the celebrations and excesses of the Carnival season give way to the sacrifice and penance of Lent. Traditionally, that means eating seafood instead of meat dishes.

This cookbook is part of a series celebrating New Orleans’ culinary past and present, to coincide with the city’s tricentennial. What better way to commemorate 300 years of life in the city we love than by celebrating the thing that truly unites us all: food. The cookbooks feature recipes from WWL-TV legend Frank Davis, current star Kevin Belton, the Southern Food and Beverage Museum and our partner, Louisiana Fish Fry Products.
