Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

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.

From the Inside Flap

Justin Wilson's Homegrown Louisiana Cookin' In Justin Wilson's Homegrown Louisiana Cookin', Justin Wilson serves up a lipsmackin' collection of recipes from the heart and soul of Louisiana. From the basics (how to make a roux, how to crack a crab, how to clean crawfish) to Justin's house specialties (Deep-fried Turkey, Justin's Succotash or Something, Oysters Justin, Mama's Fried Chicken), Justin tells you everything you need to know to cook the Louisiana way—with flavor, gusto, and good friends. These new recipes are for every part of the meal, from breads hot from the oven (Buttermilk Biscuits, Rice Bran Muffins, Corny Hushpuppies) to desserts that will make your sweet tooth ache (Pralines, Sweet Potato Pie, Pecan Cocoons). There's even a special chapter on preserves in which you can learn to make your own Louisiana hot sauce and a section on boiling seafood. So pick up Homegrown, take it home, put on your apron, and be prepared to enjoy!

I doubt very seriously you own this book. For one, to say Justin Wilson is not from Cajun Country is like saying the Pope isn't Catholic. (just so you know Justin was born and reared in Amite, LA) And anyone familiar with cajun or creole cooking knows that the TRINITY is Onions, Green Pepper, and Celery (CELERY, not garlic, though garlic is very good, its not part of the trinity). Further to call Justin Wilson a mediocre man is ludicrous. Justin Wilson was doing his thing long before that "thing" got you your own sitcom. I am afraid you (and the guy from Alabama) have Justin confused with another popular so called "cajun" chef. Jutin Wilson is as authentic as they come. His recipes are as authentic as they come. They are ground in the "old" ways. This cookbook is considered a "bible" in many kitchens, and I HIGHLY reccommend it to anyone interested in learning a little bit about TRUE cajun cooking from a MAN who learned his technique from those passed down from generations. Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!.

I love this cookbook for three reasons: 1. ingredients are inexpensive and easy to find (if you have onions, peppers, garlic, and red-peppered hot sauce, you're half way there!), 2. the instructions are easy to follow, and 3. the end results are mouth-watering good!
I am a novice cook but have found this book so easy to use and follow. If you like cajun cookin' (especially gumbos), this is a "must have" in your kitchen!

This book was a gift to me by my in-laws; therefore, they now can come over any time they want. I've gotten quiet a few cook books and this is the best one yet. He goes into great detail in his roux, jambalaya and gumbo recipes which are some of my favorites. He also gives good tips that will help in preparing seafood and he likes it spicy. We also share a passion for wine. Justin's cajun accent and his mixed in comedy are definately a treat. He's my cooking hero!

making some of the soup stocks detailed in justins' book has enhanced the flavor of many soups and dishes. anytime i want to make a dish with an all day flavor i will break off a piece of stock from my zip lock bag in the freezer.
before amazon.com, PBS television introduced me to justin wilsons' way of cooking. the humor and flavor of the show spills over into his cook books. this has been a good experience.

I purchased this book when it came out about ten years ago after faithfully watching the TV show. (I got tired of trying to hastily write down all of the recipies during the show). It has become one of my favorite cookbooks. It is not "haute cuisine" so if that's what you are looking for, look elsewhere. It is one of the best recipie books for down-home southern cooking I have ever read. My copy is stained and dog-eared but it is still the one I pull out first when I get ready to cook up something special. Also if you don't like the Cajun aspect (or if like me your stomach has gotten a little sensitive with age), you can leave out the cayenne pepper from any recipe and it still tastes great. The stories are quite funny, too.

I had only recently heard of Justin Wilson. My husband and I love cajun food and I wanted to learn how to make it at home. Someone told me about him and a new fan was born!!! My husband bought me this book and another of Justin's to start out with.
The recipes are simple and delicious. I had no trouble making them, even as a first-timer. You can interchange a lot of the different kinds of meat as well - for example with the crawfish etoufee, we have made with shrimp as well as petite lobster.
The little stories in his book are entertaining as well. If you enjoy eating cajun, you will love this book!!!

Justin has made some of the simplest of recipes, delicious!! One of my favorites is a fresh snap beans, potato, and neckbone dish. Made with hot-sauce and wine!! I like to put ham in it to make it a meal. MMMMM good!! You will not go broke sticking to ingredients either. Simple ingredients, common sense abound!! And flavor!! I read it like a novel!!
