Louisiana Real and Rustic by Emeril Lagasse
Louisiana Real and Rustic

Perlin, November 11, 2008

First, the disclaimer: I am not Cajun, but my girlfriend is.

Our copy of this book is well worn and well loved. Emeril (and his co-author the incredible Marcelle Bienvenu) have written a cookbook full of winning recipes. It's the best reference book we have for all the favorites we enjoy in Louisiana and at her mama's house. For those who appreciate regional, seasonal food...this is a book for you! If you enjoy meat, you'll find lots of great recipes full of flavor. If you are a vegetarian (as we were for a long time), look through the vegetables section, leave out the pork for seasoning, and brown the onions a little longer for extra flavor. No matter what you like, spicy or sweet, there's something here for you.

Highly recommended!
