My brother has lived in New Orleans for just under ten years and turned me onto this book. I have tried at least 5 recipes in the past year. My personal favorite is the Jambalaya recipe on page 76. I added more tabasco sauce and substituted chicken for the ham. The key to a a great Jambalaya is a well seasoned pot. I bought a Cast Iron Dutch Oven and only use it for my Cajun Dishes. Buy this book and Enjoy the Cajun Cooking Experience.

I'm not from the Big Easy. Have only been there a handful of times. This cookbook has my favorite crawfish etoufe recipe.

I made a number of these recipes for a Creole Thanksgiving we hosted this year and was incredibly pleased with the results. The recipes are easy and straight forward with amazing results, even if you are making them for the first time. We made the Oysters in Cream, Maque Choux, Bread Pudding and Whiskey Sauce and the Pecan Pie. All our guests raved about the food.

I have been involved in gourment cooking for 20 years. I have many wonderful cookbooks and this one is in my top "5". The recipes are easy and the results are "high-end". For example....the bread pudding is almost as good as I have had at Arnauds. You won't be sorry...if you purchase this book.

My Gourmet Club recommended this book for New Orleans recipes for an upcomming Mardis Gras themed dinner. I made the bread pudding with whiskey sauce which I found in this book. It was easy and came out great. Other members made the Jambalaya and the Gumbo. The recipes in this book are easy to follow and it takes a lot of the mystery and mystique out of Cajun cooking. I have seen a lot of very complex recipes for this type of cuisine but this book has easy to make versions that taste as good or better then some that take hours of time and use very complicated techniques to create.
