Chicken, Andouille, and Oyster Gumbo. Here is a Cajun-style gumbo, a one-pot dish made with chicken and andouille from the farm, with the addition of salty oysters from the bays along the Gulf of Mexico. It is usually served with baked sweet potatoes or potato salad. Now, crawfish is king and is much sought after by both visitors and locals alike. This étouffée is a classic Cajun-style dish.

As a cajun who is displaced currently this is a must. This is real cajun and creole recipes. I see a lot of chefs trying to be cajun but don't seem to understand what real cajun food is. Her book is absolutely beautiful and floods my me with memories of my own childhood in LaPlace LA. Of all my cajun cookbooks this is the one I'd grab if it was the only cookbook I could ever have again.

This book goes beyond what is found in a "Normal" cookbook. It is a story book about Marcelle's family and friends and the history behind each recipe. Originally from South Louisiana, now in New Mexico, whenever I'm in the mood for Cajun cooking, Who's Your Mama, Are You Catholic, and Can You Make a Roux comes out of my large cookbook collection and something wonderful is created in my kitchen. If you're looking for the real deal in Cajun cooking, this is the book to get. Recipe for Singing Shrimp on page 20 is my favorite dish with shrimp.

I got a used one and it looked brand new. My Paw Paw was born, raised, and buried in Washington, a few miles north of Lafayette. The rest of my family (which has got to be half the Cajun population of LA) is spread around those surrounding towns. Momma loved it. The recipes were great, but the stories were truly the real treasure. She plans on buying it for other relatives for Christmas. Definitely a perfect gift for any Cajun!!!

What a wonderful publication this is--not only a good cookbook which contains Cajun/Creole treats made the old fashioned way, but delightful well written family stories and pictures. The author is a long time newspaper woman in New Orleans, born in the heart of Cajun country, Lafayette, LA. Many people who collect cook books read them from cover like a novel. This is an excellent volume for that, but it also provides the means to good Cajun meals and other delights. This is one cook book that belongs on every shelf. Get it today and start enjoying.

Unless you live in Louisiana you've probably discovered Marcelle Bienvenu by watching Food TV's "Emeril Live." When it comes to cajun/creole food, she's the real deal. Who's Your Mama... is an excellent seasonal based regional cookbook. It's also a warm, charming memoir of life in a large family in Southern Louisiana. Bienvenu brings serious credentials to the table. In addition to this book and several others co-authored with celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse, she writes a food column for the New Orleans Times-Picayune and is a former restaurant owner. The cookbook contains a wealth of cajun classics. In addition, the memoir of times and events and their ties to food in the kitchen may well remind you of Marcel Pagnol's novels of life in Provence or Laurie Colwin's delicious essays on food and eating. A delightful book.
