WOuld not recommend Talk About Good II, however.
The recipes are easy to follow and the results are wonderful. I have not had one recipe I have tried fail.
I only wish I lived in Louisiana where I would be able to get fresh shrimp and crab and tasso and andouille and on and on.
However, barring that, these are wonderful recipes. I particularly like the recipe for benets. Yum.
Anyone that grew up in the heart of cajun Louisiana remembers seeing this cookbook on the counter next to the huge jar of red beans and larger jar of Community coffee. "River Road Recipes" is its equivalent among the Eastern Cajuns and Baton Rougeans.
If you want to learn to cook cajun food the way they do it in Lafayette this and the succeding versions are for you. All you'll need is a cast iron skillet, heavy dutch oven and you're on you're way.
Of course, some of the new cookbooks (Paul Prudhomme and later) are full of interesting new ideas that you might like even more. Our cuisine keeps getting better but it won't hurt you to learn the standards. Versions two and three are a little more up-to-date.
You should also check out "River Road Recipes" which shows more influences of New Orleans and rivals Talk About Good as the most popular book among real Louisiana home, social club and fish camp cooks.
There are a lot of misconceptions about how we talk. If you want to imitate us after eating something delicious, skip anything that Justin Wilson ever said and exclaim "Talk about good!"
"Talk about good, yeah!," "Kyaw, talk about good good!" and "Pooo, talk about good!" also work.
