First HHS Hi-Steppers cookbook boasts 500 recipes
The end result is "Kickin’ in the Kitchen – Cajun Style," a 100-percent locally-produced cookbook featuring 500 recipes. The book features recipes including appetizers, soups, salads, seafoods, meats, vegetables, breads and desserts, as well as a few Cajun cooking instructions throughout.
"We were looking for a new and different kind of fundraiser for the girls this year," said Parent Club President Brett Cazenave. "We all love to cook and we thought this could be a good way to capitalize on that.
"We sincerely appreciate all the support we’ve received from the local business community."
Cookbooks will be sold for $20 at HHS home football games, by Hi-Stepper parents and at several local businesses throughout the parish. Cookbooks can be purchased through mail order for an additional $5 for shipping and handling. For more information, call (985)785-9608 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
