Cajun cuisine is a real mix of the clash of cultures, blended with necessity.  Basis of the cuisine is a mix of classical French and Spanish, together with the exotic flavours of Africa, mixed with some unique ingredients of the deep south.

Cajun Cuisine, Authentic Cajun Recipes from Louisiana’s Bayou Country is a carefully selected compilation of the totally authentic recipes from the region.  Compiled by W. Thomas Angers, a member of a second generation Louisiana publishing family, the book contains critical information on the origins and component parts of true Cajun food.

This cookbook includes Louisiana classics from gumbos, jambalayas, bisques, fricassees, to etouffees,  piquante sauces, wild game, seafood and much more. An extraordinary effort was made to identify and publish both authentic and tasty Cajun recipes – no photographs though.

At Wickedfood Cooking School, we use this cookbook as a constant source of reference when developing our various Cajun cooking classes.

Wickedfood Cooking School runs cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built Johannesburg cooking studio. Cookery classes are run in the mornings and evenings 7 days a week (subject to a minimum of 12 people). The venue is also popular for corporate events and private functions – teambuilding cooking classes, birthdays, kitchen teas, and dinner parties with a difference. Our cooking lessons are hands-on, where every person gets to participate in the preparation of the dishes. They are also a lot of fun where you not only learn new skills, but get to meet people with similar interests. For corporate groups and team building cooking classes these events are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients. We’ve just launched a new and exciting  class, Wickedfood Master Cook. Think Master Chef with a fun twist.
