Sounds like you and Juliev don't like him much, but I enjoyed his show. Actually he was more of a Cajun humorist than cook--an uncle has all of his records. He also died a couple of years ago, I believe.

no.. I didn't say I didn't like him.. I love his show.. my grandma got me hooked on his show.. along with julia child, the frugal gourmet..etc.. I think I owe it to her that I love cooking.. I was watching cooking shows at a very young age.

I just said I didn't know the details of his personal life.. that doesn't matter to me..

I loved Justin Wilson! Actually went to LaPlace to see him cook once, too. What a blast! He was also Grand Marshall of the Christmas Parade in Natchitoches, LA in about 78(?) and I was thrilled to get his autograph on two cookbooks that I cherish to this day! Of course, he got off a good pinch to my derierre after the second autograph.....

What a toot he was!

Yeah he was. I also loved how he would explain how many people his recipes would feed - "About 2 Cajuns and 12 regular people." Do you have his recipe for smothered potatoes?

mudbug, I can’t find “Smothered Potatoes” in either of the two books, but I think this one comes pretty close and fits the Justin Wilson definition of “smothered”:

From The Justin Wilson Cookbook, c. 1965; pp. 77 (without any editing):

Irish Potatoes Au Gratin Au Vin

6 or 8 large potatoes
olive oil
6 or 8 large onions
1 cup sauterne wine
red ground cayenne pepper
salt
3 cups grated American and Parmesan or Romano cheese

Cover bottom of casserole with olive oil and rub sides with it. Place in casserole a layer of sliced potatoes, then a layer of sliced onions, and a layer of cheese. Use at least two different types of cheese mixed together. Sprinkle each layer with salt and red pepper to taste. Repeat until casserole is full. Pour wine over the whole mess and bake in oven at about 375 degrees.

Justin didn’t say in the recipe how long to cook the potatoes….must have been too much extra sauterne! However, following the recipe was this statement:

“Here’s where you’ nose come in handy. When you mixes that wine wit’ them egg, you gonna know it’s right when the mixture done smell jus’ like eggnog at Chris’mus time. But don’ drink it, no, you! Put it in the recipe, jus’ like I tol’ you.”

There will never be another like him…on TV, at least.

Bien merci, Audeo--this sounds mos' right. My dad grew up in New Orleans and his Irish mother used to make him smothered potatoes.
