He was one of my chef "Idols" growing up. I guarunnnteeee! Always used a ton of wine in everything. They should do a documentary or film on his life. Probably Very interesting .

He was one of my main cooking teachers. I've become a fairly good Cajun cook based on what I learned from Justin Wilson.

Shauna Saucier I did the same thing. I was waiting on some cold weather
This is a time when cooking shows were entertaining. Justin Wilson, Keith Floyd and Jacques Pepin were my faves. Now, cooking shows are so scripted, so sterile and dull.

First of all, there is no such thing as a New Orleans Cajun. The "Cajuns" are descended from the French Acadians that were expelled from Canada by the British in the late 1700s for failing to swear allegiance to the British crown. These people settled primarily in the South Central area of Louisiana (although there are smaller communities settled in Maine and elsewhere) which is now referred to as Cajun Country. The popular misconception is that New Orleans = Cajun, which is not so. Also Justin Wilson is not from New Orleans, but from Roseland, which is about 70 miles NNW of New Orleans. It is actually geographically closer to Baton Rouge than New Orleans. His Cajun accent is pure schtick that he plays for the camera. He is a good cook and entertaining to watch, but as a native of Lafayette, LA I tend to get a little annoyed when people think that New Orleans has anything to do with the Cajuns.

+Dick Mott sorry Dick Mott you must research more. First off some Cajuns did own slaves that narrative has been debunked everyone that came here wasn't poor. Number 2 there were people living in what we call today Cajun country before Cajuns. Number 3 literally when the slaves where sold on the slave logs at auction they said on them Master Chef, engineer, grade A molasses maker, master carpenter etc another debunked myth keep research and you'll find this like I have. Now like I said before if you want to make Cajun culture inclusive you could but people already have their minds made up. Cajun culture comes from Creole culture from the food to music and anything in between. It's human nature to be influenced by people around you. All I ask is what did the Cajuns bring from Nova Scotia that influenced people from Louisiana. By the way in Louisiana in New Orleans 1/3 of the people living there were free people of color aka Creole of color and 95 percent of the street vendors were people of color. This isn't a black white thing it's a Creole vs Cajun thing. Because before jim crow took hold in Louisiana Cajuns were black and white then they weren't anymore. Reclassification should've never happened but it did an explanation would be in order because my family came from Nova Scotia too.

without this guy there would be no Emeril, or Wolfgang, or Bobby Flay. I loved this show and Yan Can Cook.
