Justin Wilson
 
Anyone else remember watching this old Cajun on TV? I watched a number of his shows when I was growing up, and loved it. It's too bad there aren't guys like him around anymore on the food channels.

Here's him making gumbo: New Orleans Cajun, Justin Wilson - Gumbo - YouTube

Loved watching Justin Wilson, he was my inspiration for cooking and creating on my own!!! Before Justin I had about a two week repertoire.

Loved him and Graham Kerr, the Galloping Gourmet.

I remember them all, and so very fondly! The are the foodieTV pioneers. I'd also like to give a shout out to Marcia Adams. "Cooking from Quilt Country" is one of the most beautiful cookbooks I own (and I have lots.) A gentle soul from a different time and place.

"A little onyon." "Pot liquor". We just had a crawfish etouffee from one of his books. He cooked a bit with Sauternes wine and told some great stories. I got in trouble for skipping school to watch him, Graham and Julia. Did I mention that was elementry school.:lol:

Yes, I remember him. I remember that he often cleaned out his ears with his little finger as he cooked. But I still liked him.
