As a follow-up to its wildly popular predecessor (Talk About Good), the Junior League of Lafayette brings you Talk About Good II - a unique cookbook which represents the best of gourmet cooking - 'cajun style'. Flexibility and ingenuity are among the traits which encouraged the survival of Cajun culture and led to the creation of an exceptional cuisine. Cajun cooking, one of the culture's distinguishing marks, reflects Cajun adaptability, concern with the sensory pleasure and let's-take-life-as-it-comes attitude. Through the recipes and pictures contained herein, this cookbook salutes the enduring vitality of the Cajun cultural heritage and the culinary artistry of Acadiana. The recipes reflect the mixed legacy and the versatility of the region, and are as diverse as the population which lives there. Included are wonderful recipes for beverages, salads, appetizers, breads, soups, gumbos, vegetables, meats, poultry, game, seafood, sweets and more. Also included are sample menu suggestions for celebrations such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween and more. 349 pages
