The *only* reason for giving this 4.5 stars instead of 5 is that there are no photos of finished dishes. But there is a collection of Mr. St. John's writings sure to bring at least a smile, if not a belly laugh.

I particularly like the sauces and seasoning mixes recipes (starting on page 181), but there are several recipes I'll be trying soon -- party or no party:

Crab Fritters with Sseafood Rémoulade Sauce
Crawfish-Andouille Hush Puppies
Tasso and Smoked-Cheddar Savory Cheesecake
Virginia Ham & Pimento-Cheese Bisuits
Shrimp Emapanadas (or Chicken-Andouille)
Miniature Crawfish Pies

Also included are his Corn-and-Crab Dip and Oyster-and-Artichoke Dip, which are inspired by top soup offerings at his restaurants.

St. John has three restaurants in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, not too far from where I live, and my family enjoys them all. He is a true ambassador of food in and for our state, and a true joy to read (or listen to, if you are lucky enough to attend a functions where he is speaking). Weekly columns (and recipes) published in the local paper are also uploaded to his website, so take a little time to look around there and see if you wouldn't like to add this title to your collection.
