Overview

From the hit series Swamp People comes this video-enhanced cookbook filled with favorite Cajun holiday recipes. Louisianans celebrate the bountiful harvest of the swamp year round. Every Louisiana season is a food season. Danger and excitement abound—and plenty of swamp-inspired recipes—along with a rich tradition of language, food, music, and generations of shared family experience. A colorful cast of characters shares techniques dating back to frontier days to live off the land and create exciting cuisine. Men who make gumbo and snag gators with their bare hands make history every day in Swamp People.

Louisiana is a melding of nationalities. Its history is filled with French colonists, African slaves, German indentured servants, and Acadian immigrants (Louisiana’s present day Cajuns). Native Americans first taught settlers how to make a meal from the bounty of the swamp, teaching them how to cook and eat raccoons, cottontail and swamp rabbits, squirrels, beavers, otters, turtles, snakes and alligators. All early colonists ate wild game, including deer and wild boar. Hunting is still popular today, and learning to cook is a ritual, which begins for many at the hunting camp.

Check out some of the Swamp People’s favorite holiday traditions, from Le Réveillon and Trapper’s Christmas to Boucherie, Mardi Gras, Easter Crawfish Bisque, and more, in this new e-book, filled with mouth-watering recipes from Chef John Folse, a leading authority on Cajun and Creole cuisine and culture. Experience for yourself how Louisiana cuisine is as varied and flavorful as its rich heritage.

    Very interesting

    Interesting I have tried some of the recipes that I have eight a long time ago and I can say I have enjoyed the meals once more.
    This recipe book is well-written, easy to use, and worth owning as far as my experience with cooking some of the meat of the South.

    I appreciate the author for making this book possible, to bring back memories of the South.

    Very informative

    I was pleasantly surprised at how informative this 43 paged cookbook, laced with Cajun History, was. Loved the wonderful video commentary throughout.

    If you are a fan of the Swamp People, you will really enjoy this. The recipes are interesting and can easily be adapted to less adventuous appetites, i.e., chicken instead of alligator. I plan on making the Honey Pecan Pie for Thanksgiving. All the recipes are in the Cajun spirit of cooking, but like I said, are easily adaptable. Chef John Folse is the provider of the recipes, so I am confident they will come out great.

    The icing on the cake; it's free!
