From Soup to Nuts: Cookbook and Hysterical Tales

Two bright, well-educated misfits ended up running a Cajun hybrid restaurant on Milwaukee’s working-class South Side in 1980. They were also a Canadian-American–blend couple who went beyond their “provincial” status to experience life and love in the 1980s.

This book is full of escapades, foibles, and spectacular screwups, as these two nutty baby boomers write about their calamities in the restaurant business. These “cautionary tales” cover everything from crazed customers, dear and derelict employees, and culinary dreams and disasters. Original and delicious recipes that cover home cooking to authentic Cajun cuisine will keep you warm and smiling in these adventurous and hilarious tales of From Soup to Nuts.
