This cookbook was inspired by the award-winning HBO series, Treme, and no offense to Breaking Bad, but we'd rather cook recipes from this show, thanks. Learn simple homestyle recipes for your favorite New Orleans dishes. No Nola cookbook would be complete without a few vibrant (very spicy) Asian dishes, like this fiery peppered hanger steak.

Got the flu? Eat up, you'll need your strength.

Idlis, steamed fermented rice and lentil dumplings, are a staple of South Indian cuisine. When your culture has been strictly vegetarian for about five thousand or so years, you're going to find some innovative ways to deal with the rice and lentil aspect of your diet, a.k.a most of it.

Here are a few of my favorite ways.

Ideal if you are pressed for time, this braise, a quick, spicy take on Spanish paella, uses the lean meat from the loin, which would dry out if cooked for longer. Marinate the pork ahead if you can. Leftovers can easily be rewarmed in a microwave.
