Publisher Comments:

Who is Justin Wilson? That's a pretty sillyquestion for anyone in Louisiana to ask. Perhaps no public figure is betterknown or loved during recent times in the Pelican State than Justin Wilson.Curiously enough, Wilson got his start as an industry safety engineer, a highlyvalued and respected one too, instructing oil refinery workers, dockworkers, and law enforcement officers all over the South.It was this line of work that inspired the Cajun storyteller in Wilson, judging from what Wilson himself has to say: Way back when I firststarted as a safety engineer, I took myself pretty seriously. And I found I wasputting audiences to sleep. So, having lived all my life among the Cajuns ofLouisiana, and having a memory for the patois and the type of humor Cajuns gofor, I started interspersing my talks on safety with Cajun humor. And you knowwhat? My audiences stayed awake.Not only did they stay awake, they chuckled, laughed and roared-and learnedtheir safety lessons. For nearly two decades, Wilson was in heavy demand asmaster of ceremonies for everything from a supermarket opening to a Miss Texascontest. He recorded an album, The Humorous World of Justin Wilson, which broke all album sales records in Texas' recording history. After that hemade four more(all successful), appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, MC'dconventions, parties, political rallies, christenings, and you name it.Although he'd accomplished all that, Justin Wilson still wasn't satisfied-hedecided to expand his range of expertise to include the culinary arts, and hasenjoyed lots of success in that arena, beginning it all with The JustinWilson Cookbook . When it was first published by Pelican in1965, it wasa cookbook like no other-a Cajun cookbook-and it still stands alone as amasterpiece of Cajun cooking and of culinary expertise in general.Readers will be glad to know that The Justin Wilson Cookbookreflects the Justin Wilson personality-entertaining and authentic. And themeals you cook from this book will go down in your gastronomical memory as themost exciting and interesting ever
