"Dinner and a Book" with Stella Cameron

Creole Crawfish Pies and a Spicy Bayou Tale

Whet your appetite for Cajun fare with a savory little dish served up in Toussaint, Louisiana, the setting of Stella Cameron's new Kensington hardcover, COLD DAY IN JULY. About 15 minutes prior to your reading time, get out your skillet and add a half-stick of butter, chopped scallions and a couple of garlic cloves (minced). Saute until garlic is browned. Add a package of frozen crawfish tails (if they smell a little fishy, soak them in milk first for about 10 minutes, then toss the milk). Next add a can of cream of mushroom soup, smother with Tony Chachare's Creole Seasoning (or Zataran's brand), a pinch of Cayenne pepper, black pepper, a dash of tabasco. Can add a little sherry or white wine. Let simmer. Pour mixture in five-inch pie shells or mini-pastry shells (recommended for reading) and bake at 350 degrees. Begin chapter one. By the time you discover that Toussaint medical examiner Reb O'Brien and her ex-lover Marc Girard, who just returned home to search for the truth about his missing sister, reunite to prove that a young female singer's death was not an accident, you can take your mini-pies out of the oven (about 15 to 20 minutes).

Enjoy the flavor of Toussaint as passion heats up between Reb and Marc
and the betrayals in the bayou town are about to explode.
