For many years, patrons have clamored to take home a piece of the restaurant.

Uglesich's Restaurant Cookbook  Feb 13, 2008
Wonderful recipes from a legendary, but now defunct New Orleans restaurant. Like the recipes from other New Orleans cookbooks, the ingredients you need may not always be readily available in other parts of the country.
Of course, this kind of down home Creole cookbook will never be an American Heart Association selection, and, were you to sample its offerings on a regular basis, you would surely shuffle off this mortal coil more swiftly than you would have liked.
Takes Me Back  Feb 11, 2007
I only had the pleasure once, but my folks have been yearly regulars for years now. Too bad U's is closed now. I was thrilled to recieve this cookbook, and I've had very good luck with the recipes. Uglesich's was not a fancy restaurant. They just concentrated on making excellent food. The cookbook perhaps reflects that. I think anyone with some skill and a sense of adventure will enjoy using this book. A little cultural homework might be necessary, as some of the other reviewers have pointed out, but that's half the fun.
Nothing less than a 5!  Sep 20, 2005
Call me sentimental and definitely not a cookbook technician, but anything and EVERYthing to do with Uglesich's is a FIVE star with us! All I have to do is open the book and I am almost back to NOLA and our favorite restaurant with a small group of incredibly talented folks from the owners to the servers to the cooks and shuckers!!!! We miss them all! So what if I cannot access every single ingredient the moment I want it! We did not purchase five cookbooks for our sons, ourselves and some of our Ugli fans/friends for any other reason than to relish our experiences there and look forward to the next cookbook! And you know, the recipes ARE delicious!!!
Homestyle Cookbook for a Homestyle Restaurant  Aug 30, 2005
Most of the reviews for this cookbook have been negative, and they do point out some legitimate beefs, but this book is a great match for one of the quirkiest, most individualistic and truly satisfying restaurants in the nation. I'll state up front that I only went to the restaurant once, in January of 2005, and I bought the book when I placed my meal order. The food, folksie ambience and genuine characters who own and work Uglesich's are reflected in the book, and the fact that one of the family wrote the cookbook makes it that much more satisfying to own and to try and recreate even an iota of the magic of the restaurant.
As for the gripes... yes, there are typos, but they are simple oversights in a book that I have no doubt many people asked to be written for many years. This is not some flashy New York City publisher who shot a couple of pictures, chatted briefly with the owners and slapped the Uglesich's name on someone else's recipes. These are the real deal and the book is a loving homage to a place, its people, and the food that made it famous. I find the photos to be quite good, and frankly don't trust people who only look for glossy images of every recipe in a cookbook. They can stick to the photo-fetishism of Saveur magazine and the like (no knock on Saveur, but this is a cookbook!). The recipes do tend to the minimalist side as far as instructions, but that reflects the laid-back attitude of the real place. This is not the scientific precision of Cook's Illustrated, but it does give you the basics of the Uglesich's barbeque sauce and the straightforward way to make their dishes. If you don't understand what one of the ingredients is and feel that it should have been better explained (as per one of the previous reviews of this book), do a web search or ask someone at your grocery store! C'mon, this isn't rocket science, and this cookbook in particular embraces the down-home Lousiana ethos of good food, good people, and good times.
At this point, it is unclear whether the restaurant will ever open again, and considering that as I write this is the day after Hurrican Katrina blew through, there may not even be a kitchen to go back to. But I certainly hope to see Anthony and Gail again, and in the meantime I will refer back to the book anytime I need a little of that Uglesich's magic. As far as I am concerned, this book rates 4.5 stars.
Better with a little local knowledge...  Jun 13, 2005
From a Native New Orleanian, This is a good cookbook! I noticed that the other negative reviews have to do with not understanding ingredients that we take for granted & assume others do to. A pistolette is a long roll, habenero is a pepper (and not only used in N.O. cooking) and there are countless bottled varieties available. Your choice of dressing on a po-boy or sandwich means lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, ketchup, mayo etc, whatever you like. A remoulade sauce is a simple staple and you can buy it or make it easily with a recipe off the internet. Likewise, all of this information is easily accessable if you want to find out. Yes there are a lot of ingredients like creole mustard that are difficult to find in other parts of the country, but isn't this the case with most local, specialty cookbooks??? This restaurant isn't one of N.O.'s favorites for no reason!

By the way, most good New Olreans cookbooks will tell you to try different substitutions according to your liking, so don't be afraid & go for it if you can't find the exact brand of hot sauce a recipe calls for!
