I fall head over heals in love with a book and I LOVED this 920 page massive 10lb volume as soon as I saw it! It is an exceptional treasure of a book! This should be in every kitchen of those who love and appreciate Louisiana cooking and living!
The book is a very well written history of fishing and fishing culture from antiquity to today with unique facts and hundreds of recipes and absolutely AWESOME photos!
My husband is a Commercial crabber and we live below New Orleans. This book touched my heart on so many levels, as a cook, a fisherman's wife and a resident of one of the most unique areas in this wide world (especially poignant now that the oil-spill has threatened so much)!
I also own The Encyclopedia of Cajun & Creole Cuisine also by John Folse! I say John Folse is a Louisiana nonpareil Chef and cultural archivist! Bon appetit!!!

This book was purchased for my husband as a gift. He has enjoyed using it ever since he has received it and the recipes he made have been delicious.

Recipes are great, but the ingredients are hard to find. Usually susbstitute some of the ingredients with other items, making the dish one of a kind.

So many recipes for such a variety of seafood. John Folse is one of America's treasures. He is great ambassador for Louisiana.

My husband is a true cajun, but never learned all the tricks of the "how's and why's" of the local food. He loves that he has all the answers to all the great foods he grew up on and can share them with his children and soon grandchildren. This book is like a history book and cook book all rolled into one. It's a great GIFT!
