I'm fairly well read and I do enjoy increasing my vocabulary, but sometimes I just wanted to relax and read the book. What I didn't expect but was pleasantly entertained by was the look into the business of Tabasco sauce. After reading it, I am not surprised that the side of the family that is in control of the company didn't endorse or cooperate with the author. The South's economy in ruins and his millions of dollars in Confederacy currency worthless, he had no choice but to return with his wife, Mary, to her family home in Avery Island, a former sugar plantation destroyed by Union soldiers. Let's discuss the book and not something that its author was criticized for a decade ago. Never again will I be able to pick up that little bottle of Tabasco sauce and sprinkle a few drops on whatever I am eating, something I have done several times a week for a few decades now , without thinking of the amazing set of circumstances that came together to put that distinctive little bottle on my table.

The South's economy in ruins and his millions of dollars in Confederacy currency worthless, he had no choice but to return with his wife, Mary, to her family home in Avery Island, a former sugar plantation destroyed by Union soldiers. Yet by fiercely protecting its beloved brand and refusing to sell out to big food conglomerates, this family business has run circles around its competitors, churning out annual revenues that have surpassed everyone's expectations.
Rothfeder tells the story of a remarkable family, one that literally rose from the ashes of the Civil War to create a hugely successful business based on the sale of a single food product, a business that is still well known some 140 years later. . If something has been written that is factually incorrect, it will be addressed. If you go there, look for the 3-legged alligator on the preservation.

Marsh had died and left no recipe a few years back.
I can say that all hot sauce people and historians would love this book. It is a quick read that tells about a story that not many people know. The Northern army came and took over the salt mine and Edmund left and returned after the war. Yeah, it's pretty interesting, especially for those of us who grew up with this brand and love the stuff on everything. Granted, nearly 10 years have passed since this book was published.

I enjoyed the detailed history of the founding of the company and the transfer among second- and third-generation family members. The book did not seem unbelievable to me at all when it came to the mores of the area and what the people are like. For one like me who keeps my kitchen stocked with McIlhenny brand products and who has made two pilgrimages to Avery Island, it serves that purpose. I've been to New Iberia but I don't know the town very well. The book was written with little help from the McIlhenny family a notoriously closed bunch except for input from the disgruntled family members not pleased with the current generation of poor and ill-conceived management that oversees the dispersal of profits to family shareholders. It is indeed an interesting read.
