    Your Best Bet

    The recipe for homemade Cajun & Creole seasoning is called 'All That Jazz Cajun & Creole Blast' and it is the best we've used! The 'Sassy Shrimp Jambalaya' is wonderful too! Also, the 'Cajun Carrot Cake' is one of the most unique desserts ever... You can't lose with this delightfully N'awlin's Cookbook!

    Jambalaya, Crawfish Pie, File Gumbo: Cajun and Creole Cuisine

    Wow, the 'Gautreaux's Crawfish Pie' method for making this legendary dish is incredible, you can also make it with shrimp if you like. I made the 'Big Easy Bananas Foster' for dessert and it was, hand's down, the BEST I've ever had! This book has lived up to the hype!

    Jambalaya, Crawfish Pie, File Gumbo: Cajun and Creole Cuisine

    The cover has wonderful Mardi Gras colors & this book was featured in the Denver Post & dozens of other newspapers during Mardi Gras time, but this is a year-round cookbook full of great Cajun & Creole recipes... worth discovering!

    We first got this book, after it was featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, a couple of years back, we have used it so many times, and still consider it one of the best for New Orleans cuisine!

    Tribute to New Orleans

    I know what it means to miss New Orleans, and this book has so much more than delicious recipes, it has the ambience in each little story and memory to take me back to a wonderful place that I have visited many times and will again! More than a cookbook, this is a tribute to N'awlins!

    Simply Wonderful

    Delicious recipes, humor, and insightful remembrances are just a few of the unique components that have made this book a favorite for more than 5 years now! The 'Hushpeoples' are just terrific... 'Hushpuppies so hot they hush peoples too.' Also, the 'Fleur de Lis Chicken' & the 'Pasta St. Pierre' are especially outstanding dishes in this mouth-watering collection. I first discovered this title when it was featured in Cooking Light Magazine for a Crawfish Story that included several Cajun Recipes from 'Jambalaya,' there was also a great review in the San Francisco Chronicle a few months back. And What a bargain too! At this price you can have the incredible flavors and local color of South Louisiana without breaking the proverbial bank!

    Texas

    We were dissapointed in the lack of flavor in the recipes. 'Real Red Beans and Rice' was a BIG dissapointment! (Typically a no-brainer for us in the South) No wonder he recommends 'a good bit of Tabasco.' This book does not represent Louisiana well. Dar IS som good cookin/food to be had dar; And dis ain't it!

    This is the Cajun cookbook you want. This one.

    This book is an instant classic. I got mine as a gift, and it is my favorite cajun cook book. I have come back to make someone a present of it. There are many so-called 'cajun' cookbooks in print. I have lived in Louisiana, and I love the food. When I go back to visit, I have been known to send my clothes back by UPS and pack my suitcase full of anduille, tasso, and spices. I have tried more than a few recipes from other books (some well-known). Many of them will not satisfy you if you actually know what the food is supposed to taste like. The recipes in this book will produce real authentic and tasty Cajun food so that even real Cajuns would say 'C'est si bon!'. This book was obviously written by someone who knows the food, flavors and people of Louisana well enough to get then to choose and give out their best recipes. I am convinced that most 'cajun' cookbooks are just a collection of words stolen from each other by cookbook writers in New York and Los Angeles, and the writers never even bother to cook up the stuff they write about. They just make sure there are enough ingredients so it sounds like it will come out. This is not one of those. This book has the real stuff. C'est si bon!

    Jambalaya, Crawfish Pie, File Gumbo: Cajun and Creole Cuisine

    I laughed out loud at a lot of the commentary in this book. One really funny example is the recipe on page 110 'Hotter Than Hell Sabbath Dip' (From a drag queen in New Orleans who claims to be the original Creole Lady Marmalade) Very campy, very southern, other recipes make reference to Tennessee William's 'A Streetcar Named Desire' and there are so many with that distinctly New Orleans flair. This book shows the city and its cuisine from a new, refreshing angle and not the same old boring 'BAM!'

    The White Bean Creole Soup is good and so is the Mud Bug Salad. Nice collection!

    Learn to make a roux (pronounced rew) like a pro, and be entertained in the process. I proudly recommend JAMBALAYA to all aspiring Cajun cooks.

    Jambalaya, Crawfish Pie, File Gumbo: Cajun and Creole Cuisine

    Love this book. The One Jambalaya recipe that calls for sugar, sounds like a strange idea at first but it is truly delicious. Mr. St. Pierre writes and develops recipes for the top cooking magazines in the country and he has a unique yet wonderful way of experimenting and improving many dishes. The poetry is very insightful, giving the reader a glimpse into the Cajun world! I look forward to his new book 'Mari Gras Cuisine' due out in 2002!

    Was skeptical at first with all of the ultra-positive reviews, but I am now a believer. Not your typical cookbook because of the extraordinary recipes & the wonderful poetry. Makes cooking fun!

    Experience Louisiana's food traditions without leaving your own home. Enjoy the blend of flavors, unlike any other regional American taste out there. Find out how 'The Holy Trinity' Is the key to any good Cajun meal. (Holy Trinity: chopped onions, bell pepper, and celery)This book will indroduce you to the best that Cajun & Creole Cuisine has to offer.

    Includes many of the legendary Louisiana foods and stories that have been around for generations. Lots of local color in this collection, makes me want to cautch the next flight to New Orleans. The shrimp dishes are superb.

    Included is information on customs peculiar to Louisiana, along with very helpful techniques which may be unfamiliar to out-of-state cooks, yet it's all described so vividly, and delivered with the skill of a good storyteller!.
