Pirate's Pantry Cookbook

I've had (earlier printing - plastic bound) version of this cook book for at least 25 years. I absolutely love it. Unfortunately, after much use the binding broke and my cook book was a total mess, although I still frequently used it. I actually went online to order one for my new daughter-in-law and was delighted to see it in hard cover. So, I bought four (my daughter-in-law, my daughter, one as a gift for a friend and another for myself). I am delighted with the quality of this cook book. I come from a long line of great cajun cooks (my mom and both sister also have the cook book). I've eaten cajun food all of my life. These recipes are delicious, truly cajun and easy to prepare. The informative welcome to each section is a delightful extra. I would strongly recommend this cook book for anyone who enjoys cooking delicious meals. I will purchase them again for gifts for friends and family.

The Best -- Bar none!!

I have had this cookbook for many years. I first purchased it back in 1977, and it is without a doubt the best in authentic Cajun cooking. My original Pirate's Pantry finally fell apart from many years of use; but, although I recently replaced it, I still have my old original stuffed into a manila envelope. I love this cookbook!!!

Cajun secrets exposed!

Have you ever wanted to know how TRUE cajuns made their creations. Well THIS IS IT! Everything I have every made is absolutely out of this world!

Reminds me of Home!

As a former resident of Lake Charles (now Los Angeles) I have had PLENTY of time to miss the good food that my Mom and Grandmother made for me. This is one of the best ways to make up for not having them around!Many of the best home-tested recipes for some of the most basic and well-loved cajun and creole dishes are here, waiting for you to discover them. I especially love the Etouffee and the hush puppies! A must for ANYONE interested in Southern cooking.
