Belinda Hulin was stirring in gumbo pots before she could walk. At the knees of her Cajun mother and grandmothers, she learned the joys of seasonal seafood and produce and the seduction of spicy roux-based soups and fricassees. Her daddy’s barbecue—lovingly tended on a well-seasoned grill--was a thing of bronze, searing beauty. Born in Lafayette, Louisiana, and reared in New Orleans, Belinda inhaled the heady spice of country Acadian and city Creole cuisines and embraced the magic. The Louisiana native has been writing about food for newspapers and magazines for 20-plus years. She is the author of The Everything Fondue Party Book, The Everything Pizza Cookbook, The Everything Soup, Stew and Chili Cookbook, and Knack Chinese Cooking. She currently lives in Atlantic Beach, Florida, where she conjures her Louisiana ancestors, one dish at a time.
