In a Cajun Kitchen: Authentic Cajun Recipes and Stories from a Family Farm on the Bayou
Book description: "When most people think of Cajun cooking, they think of blackened redfish or, maybe, gumbo. When Terri Pischoff Wuerthner thinks of Cajun cooking, she thinks about Great-Grandfather Theodore’s picnics on Lake Carenton, children gathering crawfish fresh from the bayou for supper, and Grandma Olympe’s fricassee of beef, because Terri Pischoff Wuerthner is descended from an old Cajun family. Through a seamless blend of storytelling and recipes to live by, Wuerthner’s In a Cajun Kitchen will remind people of the true flavors of Cajun cooking. In a Cajun Kitchen presents readers with a treasure trove of authentic Cajun recipes: roasted pork mufaletta sandwiches, creamy crab casserole, breakfast cornbread with sausage and apples, gumbo, shrimp fritters, black-eyed pea and andouille bake, coconut pralines, pecan pie, and much more. In a Cajun Kitchen is a great work of culinary history, destined to be an American cookbook classic that home cooks will cherish." Big Bad Dad is the Cajun fan around here. He made the Cream Oyster Soup and the Oyster and Pork Jambalaya. Easy to make and fantastic (especially when you find oysters the size of poached eggs). If you love Cajun food or just want to celebrate Mardi Gras in true style, get this cookbook!

I found this while in New Orleans last New Year's...a great addition to any collection. More a coffee table book than anything, but it has great photography and inspiration, as well as a lengthy section on history of cultural influences to the regions cooking. Cajun & Creole are NOT the same thing!
