Wilson's fifth cookbook accompanies his new series currently running on PBS. He includes recipes for some 300 Louisiana favorites, from Crawfish Salad to Pralines, most of them fairly well known. There are few surprises here, but Wilson's previous TV series have made him widely popular; buy for demand.
