Justin Wilson made his mark as a storyteller and humorist—a goodwill ambassador of the Cajun culture of South Louisiana. He took a culture slur and made it a label of distinction, proudly identifying himself, and his cooking, as “Cajun.” For this, his final retrospective, Wilson reminisces about times gone by, the recipes he created, and the evolution of his cooking style. He features delicious original recipes, including some healthy and convenient options, and his famously funny anecdotes. Complementing such tasty tidbits are photos that capture the essence of this loveable Cajun icon. Now in paperback, this classic is sure to help you “pass a good time.” I GARONTEE!
About the Author
Justin Wilson (1914-2001), always dapper in suspenders and a bow tie, was the author of several books. He starred in three acclaimed cooking series that aired on more than 300 PBS stations nationwide. The Cajun comedian produced 27 comedy albums that charmed audiences and, at one point, even outsold Elvis Presley. Wilson passed away on September 6, 2001, but his spirit lives on through the recipes he shared and the programs he made during his lifetime, which continue to air on PBS affiliates.
