I am a novice cook but have found this book so easy to use and follow. If you like cajun cookin' (especially gumbos), this is a "must have" in your kitchen!
The recipes are simple and delicious. I had no trouble making them, even as a first-timer. You can interchange a lot of the different kinds of meat as well - for example with the crawfish etoufee, we have made with shrimp as well as petite lobster.
The little stories in his book are entertaining as well. If you enjoy eating cajun, you will love this book!!!
before amazon.com, PBS television introduced me to justin wilsons' way of cooking. the humor and flavor of the show spills over into his cook books. this has been a good experience.
