In September, Hammock Publishing made a pledge to help the folks at Louisiana Cookin’, a New Orleans-based magazine heavily impacted by Hurricane Katrina. One of our efforts to help culminated in a CD of all the magazine’s mouth-watering recipes from 2005. New subscribers receive the CD as a bonus with their first issue.

And what a bonus. Louisiana Cookin‘s crawfish jambalaya, creole pralines and zydeco grit cakes will make you say goodbye New Year’s resolutions and hello Mardi Gras!
