Overview

"[S]uperbly illustrated . . . The Louisiana Seafood Bible: Crawfish is an ideal and highly commended addition to personal, professional, and community library cookbook collections-and an absolute must for any and all crawfishing cuisine enthusiasts!"
-Midwest Book Review

Jerald and Glenda Horst invite readers into a world that starts in the Louisiana swamps and ends in the kitchen. The struggles and joys, history and traditions that are part of Louisiana are all told through the story of the crawfish. While exploring Louisiana's regional culture, the Horsts share the secrets of the crustacean featured in the dishes steeped in Cajun Country.
Divided into two sections and seasoned with photographs, this seafood bible gives an intimate look at life along the bayou and the food that made Louisiana's cuisine famous. In part one, essays and profiles humanize the industry with in-depth interviews. A commercial fisherman, a crawfish farmer, and the seafood salesman responsible for popularizing crawfish in New Orleans all share their passion for the work. Part two is filled with savory, kitchen-tested recipes such as Traditional Boiled Crawfish and Mama's Crawfish Stew to the more unusual Crawfish Fajitas and Delta Crispy Crawcakes.
Jerald Horst worked with the recreational and commercial fishing and seafood industries for thirty years. As a professor of fisheries at Louisiana State University, he brought the latest in fisheries science to coastal fisheries users. He has also worked as a roustabout and a roughneck in the oilfields of south Louisiana. Horst is the coauthor of Angler's Guide to Fishes of the Gulf of Mexico, available from Pelican.
Glenda Horst is the daughter of a commercial crawfish and finfish fisherman. She learned the basics of Cajun cooking from her mother in a small commercial fishing community on the edge of the Atchafalaya Basin. The Horsts, authors of The Louisiana Seafood Bible Series, which includes Shrimp, Crawfish, Crabs, Oysters, and Fish Volumes 1 and 2, reside in Franklinton, Louisiana.
