He is a graduate of LSU and the masters journalism school at the University of Missouri.
With "A Cajun Family Cookbook", John Gravois spreads the joy of regional cuisine as practiced by his relatives. It starts with recipes his mother taught him and Gravois ladles in more family favorites from generous southern Louisiana relatives. ? Gravois provides a primer on Cajun cooking techniques, including the best way to make perfect roux. Aside from familiar favorites, such distinctive fare as armadillo fricassee, stuffed quail, and venison stew are offered up along with sumptuous desserts like sweet potato pudding and pralines. If you grew up in Cajun country – the book will recall memories of raucous family reunions and other gatherings with aunts bearing her proudest dish. For non-Cajuns, it's a chance to eat very, very well. Again and again. This highly affordable, 96-page cookbook, $5.95, is produced in the United States by a small family-run printer.

    This is not a book, but a booklet. It is very small and the only thing I could think it would be good for is tailgating. But, make sure you take your glasses with you. I will be sending this back.
