Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

He looks like a Southern colonel or someone you might have met on a riverboat who wanted to teach you this new game, "poker." The face is handsome, the eyebrows dance when he talks.

It is when he talks that you know you’ve never met anyone quite like him. He’s an original, one of a kind, and thousands upon thousands of people have laughed as they never laughed before when he tells his stories—tales about the the most unique people who inhabitthe our earth, the great Cajuns of South Louisiana.

. . .he is also an artist when it comes to cooking. He can work the same magic with fish and fowl, with vegetables and fruit, as he can with language.

He loves to cook. His mission in life seems to be to make people enjoy life, to make them laugh, and to make them eat. (From the foreword by Gus Weill)

From the Inside Flap

Justin Wilson, the world's foremost Cajun humorist and an acclaimed Cajun cook, symbolizes the unique Cajun culture of South Louisiana. His bayouland humor fascinates audiences throughout America, and his syndicated television cooking shows bring to countless thousands the secrets of the spicy, savory cooking for which Cajun Country is famous. In this cookbook, Justin shares with readers across the land a wide range of recipes that will stimulate even the most jaded palate and stir the most lethargic taste buds to life-- "I garontee!" Embellishing this volume is a liberal sprinkling of Justin Wilson's distinctive humor and fifty color photographs featuring Justin displaying his skills in the kitchen, with his friends, and involved in many activities that characterize the earthy Cajun joie de vivre that follows Justin everywhere. Here, too, is Justin's never-miss recipe for stirring up a roux that has delighted dinner guests for more than fifty years. Special chapters on cooking in a bag and using a water-smoker cooker are also included, with step-by-step directions to ensure results that will please just about anyone. Recipes range from Cajunized Mexican Corn Bread, to Turnip Casserole with Shrimp, to Venison Etouffee, to a variety of jambalayas, to an exotic Alligator Sauce Piquant. If that is not enough to whet one's appetite, there are also Catfish with Corn Bread Stuffing, Crawfish Chili, Rabbit and Turnip Etouffee, Leftover Pasta and Eggs, and Quail in Peach Brandy Sauce. This Justin Wilson cookbook is truly a gourmet/gourmand delight: appetizers, sal-ads, breads, gumbos, casseroles, game, meat, seafood, and fowl are featured. An internationally recognized ambassador for Cajun culture, Justin Wilson uses various media to share his knowledge with people throughout the world. He has more than 800,000 books in print with Pelican, has appeared in several television series on the Public Broadcasting System, and has recorded his humorous Cajun tales on more than a dozen albums.

Everything I have made from this cookbook is wonderful. The Okra and Tomatoes and Sausage Jambalaya have been staples in our home for over 25 years.

I watch this man years ago and the show was always funny and informative. This cookbook is him and his show right in your hands. Love the down Cajun way foods. They remind me of great meals around my families table. I recommend this cookbook to all who want to feast at a Cajun's best. Recipes are easy to follow. Do read through the recipe so you have what is needed before you start. I thought I had an ingredient but in the middle of prep, I found out it was not there! Yes, above I typed tole because that's how he talked and how it is spelled in his cookbooks.

This was a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. Justin Wilson is his favorite so I knew it would go over well!. When he opened his gift he immediately told me how much he loved it. He has used these cookbooks several times since Christmas.
