Overview

Perhaps no public figure in recent times was better known or better loved as an ambassador of Cajun culture than Justin Wilson. It was his work as a safety engineer that started him on the road to becoming one of the world's greatest Cajun storytellers. Wilson often told the story of how he got his start this way:

"Way back when I first started as a safety engineer, I took myself pretty seriously. And I found I was putting my audiences to sleep. So, having lived all my life among the Cajuns of Louisiana, and having a good memory for the patois and the type of humor Cajuns go for, I started interspersing my safety talks with Cajun humor. And what do you know? My audiences stayed awake."

Actually, they did a lot more than stay awake. They chuckled, they laughed, they roared-and they also learned their safety lessons.

Wilson leaves a legacy of having brought Cajun food to the world outside of southeast Louisiana. His cookbooks are unique, entertaining, and authentic. Original Cajun recipes include Red Bean Soup, French Fried Shrimp, Okra Gumbo, Venison Roast, and Dirty Rice. The meals prepared from this book are sure to go down in gustatory memory as the most exciting and interesting ever eaten!

This unique collection of Cajun recipes and humor set the imagination on the right track.
