    Fried oyster & bacon sandwich says it all!

    Very entertaining, in-depth look into cajun cooking. I cant imagine making my own boudin, but I could with this book. A few practical recipes and lots of colorful info on cajun tradition and cooking. Good gift for a southwestern or Louisianan.

    Real Cajun is the real deal

    I am a native Louisianian, and am often amused at what people think is Cajun cooking. Chef Link is a real Cajun (not a pejorative term in Acadiana), and his recipes sing for lovers of real Louisiana Cajun food.

    Anyone who owns a restaurant named after the noble hog (Link's New Orleans spot is named "Cochon") is okay in my book.

    If you are looking for prissy Creole dishes ala New Orleans' signature restaurants such as Galatoire's and Commander's Palace, this is not the book for you. But if you want real, rustic, hardcore Louisiana Cajun dishes, grab this book for your collection.

    love this book

    I borrowed this from the library in the fall of '09 and kept renewing it, it was so good! My family got it for me as a Christmas present. I have made the fried meat pies, biscuits, twice baked potatoes and the hush puppies so far. All the instructions are clear, and the writing is very conversational and entertaining. And of course the photography is beautiful and makes your mouth water!

    Not A Single Flaw

    I have been steadily eating my way through this book and it hasn't steered me wrong yet. Not only is it a beautifully presented book, almost beautiful enough to have on your coffee table, it's more than just a pretty facade. It's filled with true cajun dishes with authentic flavors. Plenty of kick and spice. The dishes are relatively easy and don't require complicated culinary tools or ingredients. A true delight.

    I thought with a name like Link, what does this guy know about C

    I thought with a name like Link, what does this guy know about Cajun food? Apparently everything!! Was totally surprised..... not only is he a real Coons a$$.... he knows what he is talking about. The recipes are down to earth and explained in a way that a non-cook can follow. Not only will the food get you hooked, the stories that accompany each recipe will take you back to your own grandparents' kitchen table. Only going to give it 5 Stars, because they don't have 10..... Thank you Mr. Link for the journey; I was able to see Acadia through your words and recipes.

    Real Cajun is a REAL Winner

    As a native of South Louisiana, I thoroughly enjoy reading and using Donald Link's book. The stories are so heartfelt and entertaining while bringing a real sense of the Cajun culture to life. Each page makes my mouth water for more. The recipes are very authentic and very easy to follow.
