My Mardi Gras cooking bible for many years
on March 3, 2014
I'm convinced that if you're trashing this book, you're either just an Emeril-hater or not a fan of Cajun food. I've made many of the recipes, and maybe 1 wasn't a hit, that's it. Everything else has always been raved about. As ridiculous as it sounds, people always say the steamed white rice is so good, which it is. The favorites that get made traditionally are Pork Boulettes (with Creole Tartar Sauce), the mayo, Maw Maw's Slaw, Red Beans and Rice, Shrimp and Ham Jambalaya, Shrimp Boil, Crawfish Imperial and Crawfish Etouffee. I would put any or all of these at the top of my favorite foods to eat that I cook, period. I cook, a lot, and I love to, and these are my favorites without a doubt.
