Hooks, Lies & Alibis



With book lovers still reeling from Chef John Folse’s last cookbook, Folse and his team are releasing the next tome in his Cajun and Creole trilogy, Hooks, Lies & Alibis. The title pays tribute to Louisiana’s time-honored fish and seafood tradition and cuisine. Like his other legendary cookbooks, Hooks, Lies & Alibis begins with a look to the past by co-author Michaela York. The history of fishing is told from ancient man through the modern age. Because of fishing, fast and fish days are observed, laws created, countries and empires built and New Worlds conquered. More than 600 fish, seafood and related recipes are packed into this 920-page volume.
