    love it

    got this for my granddaughter because it had all the recipes from one side of her heritage. has both the cajun and creole recipes so that anyone wanting a good taste of new orleans will get it and understand the difference between the two kinds of cooking.

    Dependable Recipes for Authentic Flavor

    This is not a typical, make-them-feel-good cookbook. The writing is dry, but accurate...not touch-y/feel-y. What's great about Dr. Collin's book is that his recipes include exactly measured seasonings so that you don't have to guess how much is 'to taste' or how much is 'a pinch'. If you follow the recipe, the resulting taste will be authentic old-world creole flavor. An' cher, dere ain't not'in betta!

    The whisltlestop cafe of authentic cajun cooking

    I've lived and cooked in Louisiana all my life. This cookbook includes all the subtle flavoring of the best versions of the old receipes. For a taste so good you'll want to 'slap yo mama,' try adding oysters in the last 10 minutes of cooking the GUMBO Z'HERBES (Green Gumbo) receipe.
