Bisque of Corn & Crab. Louisiana Seafood Gumbo. Cajun Stuffed Rack of Lamb. The best of traditional Cajun & Creole cuisine comes to life with an emphasis on the "new basics" in Louisiana Chef John D. Folse's newest cookbook "The Evolution of Cajun & Creole Cuisine". Folse's new cookbook is the first of its kind to tell the 250-year old history of Cajun & Creole cuisine. "The rich heritage of Louisiana cuisine has never been told in a more complete form, with traditional recipes to carry the flavor of the Cajuns & Creoles into the 90s," Folse said. "I felt it was time to clear up the misconceptions about Louisiana cooking, & tell American consumers not only where we have been, but also where we are going." Folse provides the history behind each dish & method of preparation, adding depth to the inherent traditions of the Cajuns or Creoles who created them. More than 250 recipes for stocks & sauces, appetizers, soups, vegetables, poultry, meats, seafood, wild game, desserts & lagniappe ("something extra" in south Louisiana) are featured in the 352 page cookbook.
