This is a sumptuous and thorough cajun creole cookbook, covering all of the recipe classics. John D. Folse is the owner chef at Lafitte's Landing Restaurant in Donaldsonville, Louisiana. He is a Cajun from St. James parish in South Louisiana. Book excerpt, "The people there are a mixture of French, English, Spanish, German, Negro, and Indian cultures. From this melange has emerged the style of cooking known as Cajun and Creole Cuisine". There are tabbed sections on Appetizers, Gumbo & Soups, Vegetables, Poultry, Meats, Seafood, Wild Game, Desserts, and Lagniappe. From the book:

"Lagniappe means, 'something extra' in South Louisiana. It is a Cajun custom to always throw in a little lagniappe whether it is at the bakery with an extra cookie, in the gumbo pot, or at the end of a cookbook. This section includes specially requested recipes from Cajun and Creole families". Wow. What a treat!

This is a fabulous vintage cookbook, a thorough and authentic expert book on Louisiana cooking. The illustrations by George Rodrique add so much character. This is the must-have go-to cookbook for any chef exploring Cajun and Creole cuisine, hard to find. Makes a thoughtful gift!
