One of the best parts about living in Louisiana is Twelfth Night and the Mardi Gras season. If you're celebrating or getting ready, it's not too late to add some special excitement to your festivities.

If you need recipes, we have you covered. Our newest digital magazine offering, Louisiana Cookin’ has a magazine full of Mardi Gras fun and recipes, including a Creole cream cheese and satsuma king cake (page 65). You’re just a few baking ingredients away from a taste experience that is out of this world!

Note: Zinio magazines are free for Beauregard Parish Library card holders. You will need to create a personal account for your magazines, and you may need to log in the first time with your card number.

If you want to check out a print book instead, we have plenty of cookbooks with a Louisiana flair. Here are just a few of them from our online catalog with a keyword search for Louisiana recipes or a subject search for Louisiana cooking. These are different searches that yield slightly different results.
