re: Vernon Roger's Cookbook


I have not seen the cookbook, but with all due respect, I thought the recipes he did on the air were laughably amateurish. It seemed like his goal was to use the least amount of ingredients possible and rely heavily on processed food. Why make a bechamel when God gave us cream of mushroom soup. If that is the way you cook, it might be your best choice.

Yes. I always like the guy. Such a waste. I thought that the way he was treated after the prostitute scandal was horrible. The guy just wanted some poon. Nothing wrong with that.

re: Vernon Roger's Cookbook


The book has a few short cuts. He was fond of Rotel Tomatoes...other than that, it works pretty well. If it hurts to use Rotel, the fresh stuff is easy to chop.As for the mushroom soup shortcut, I've never been able to picture an old Cajun woman opening a can of Campbell's and so I stay away from that method...though I've cooked with a shite load of Coonasses that don't.

No judging here. Whatever a guy wants to do in the privacy of his own home (or on Plank Road) is OK with me!

re: Vernon Roger's Cookbook


he was actually at lamendola apartments in gonzales, still laugh everytime I pass there. Poor diane tried to tame a coonass, like making a ho a housewife.

Also, I think his method of cooking was good for a news show. It allowed busy parents a way to cook a real meal on a a tight schedule.

Good point. He cut a few corners, but every day isn't Saturday so that we can cook low and slow for 4 hours with a six pack or two.

I still have mine and still use it on occasion...certainly not gourmet food, but good solid cajun cooking that the average person can accomplish...

Anyone ever ate at his restaurant? I believe it was on Bluebonnet, and he openeed it after he was let go by the station. I was living in California at the time and never did.

Good stuff for a beginner but not real cheffin....he had a love fest for rotel and cream of mushroom soup....The trick is to bring out the flavors of spices and food not cover them up in canned sauces.
