If you like to eat great comfort food, you will be forever grateful that you purchased it.
David Borisenko
The biggest question I have about `The Top 100' is whether this means the best recipes of the 100, or the 100 most distinctively Cajun recipes.
B. Marold
This is a nifty little book with all my favorite cajun recipes, plus a bunch more I can't wait to try.

My wife and I are avid fans of Cajun and Zydeco music, and we take trips to Louisiana as often as possible to go to festivals and dance. On one of our trips we stopped by The Cajun General Store in Lafayette to do some souveneir shopping. I spied "The 100 best Cajun Recipes of All Time" on a book rack. It was a humble little pamphlet and very reasonably priced. I figured that any book that made that boast for so little a financial risk was worth a try. That gamble paid off with years of great eating.
I haven't tried all the recipes, only about 20. Not only have I not been disappointed, I have eaten some of the best food of my entire life. You won't find Paul Prudhomme in this cook book, but you will find Manning "Pete" Broussard of Lafayette Parish. Never heard of him. Well, don't feel bad, no one outside of his family has probably heard of him either. You see, these recipes were collected by Acadiana Magazine over a period of 20 plus years. The were sent in by true Cajuns who probably learned the recipes from their family members who had been perfecting them for generations. Most of the recipes are very simple. For example, there is a chicken stew recipe that I frequently make, and most of the time, I only need to buy chicken to have everything I need to prepare it. If you follow the instructions, you really do not need to be a great cook to prepare great Cajun food. But you do need patience, because most of the recipes require several hours to be prepared right.
I can't emphasize enough what a great buy this book is. If you like to eat great comfort food, you will be forever grateful that you purchased it. If you don't believe me, try this recipe and see if you are convinced.

As a native of South Louisiana, I love Cajun cooking and have long read the Acadiana magazine, and saved recipes from it. This little cookbook takes thebest from the magazine. These are the basic recipes that we love--gumbo, etoufee, bisque, all the favorites of the region. There is a section for cooking game for those who like it. After traveling around this country and some places in Europe, I think the best food anywhere is South Louisiana Cajun cooking! I may be a bit biased, but someone must agree with me, since Cajun has become so popular. We were in a pub inEngland and Cajun food was on the menu. The book is simple and there are no pictures, but the recipes are easy to follow. For the price, well worth it.

I bought this as a gift, and it is just what Cajun food is meant to be; timeless no nonsense recipes that have stood the test of time. If you want to be a serious Cajun cook, you should start with the basics in here before you buy some overwrought restaurant cookbook from NOLA.

This is filled with great recipes that taste great and aren't that difficult to make. Put together a party for 8 with a handful of recipes that everyone enjoyed. I'm looking forward to making more of these.

There are two 'gotcha's that you have to watch for as you start making stuff from here:

Not everything is spelled out. Example of a recipe that called for "a cup and a half of Roux", they do include a generic Roux recipe in the front of the book but don't list how much it makes, leaving the reader to figure out how much to multiply the recipe by to make a cup and a half (8x it turns out).

Quantities seem more for big families, I made two recipes for a party (seafood gumbo and smothered okra) and even cutting the recipes in half I had way too much food for 8 people. Neither recipe stated how many servings they would make. In the end, for smaller families be prepared to cut recipes down to a quarter or less, this might make for some interesting measurements but will prevent your fridge overflowing with leftovers.

Definitely get this recipe book, some great food here!
