A fine catch for the cook, cookbook collector and just about anyone with a taste for South Louisiana's legacy of simple to exquisite foods. This book collects recipes from area Cajun families - some handed down for generations - into a step-by-step style that should make preparation easy. Cooking methods include everything from outdoor open fire, the traditional black iron pot, to microwave. Accompanied by illustrations by Opelousas artist J.A. Allen. Allen's illustrations depict everyday life of the early Cajuns.
