What are people saying about John LaFleur's new book, "Their Voices, Their Hands, Their Gifts Louisiana's Creole Food & People..."? 


Here are some scholarly reviews

“In this book, part history, ethnology, etymology; part ritual, always epicurean, LaFleur recalls the historical connection the Creole people, linguistically and culturally, have to the place that has become Louisiana. This is an invitation into our world; an invitation into our lifeways and traditions that, like our food, carries the culture from Louisiana into the Creole diaspora: our diasporic communities of California, Texas, and beyond. This book is an invitation to get to know Creole life-through all of its lenses, in a truly ceremonial context. It’s a pretty impressive, well-researched, ethno-historical cookbook! Enjoy! -Carolyn Dunn, Ph.D. Choctaw, Oklahoma, writer-poet, Louisiana-Native American scholar

“Thank you, John LaFleur, for this awesome book! Your scholarship and contributions to Louisiana Creole culture are exceptional and appreciated by many. If you haven’t picked up his book, please do!” –Dr. Andrew Jolivétte, is professor and former chair (2010-2016) of the American Indian Studies Department at San Francisco State University 

“John LaFleur’s Louisiana’s Creole Food & Culture: A Menu of Ethnic Diversity is an original work that sits at a crossroads of history, ethnography, memoir, cookbook, and a Louisiana lexicon. The late poet Édouard Glissant opposed the menacing notion of a bland but powerful uniform commercial world. Glissant’s alternative was a concept he coined: Tout-Monde (Whole World). The Tout-Monde is ethnically complex and diverse. John LaFleur’s book is a model of Glissantian Tout-Monde. Through Louisiana’s Creole Food & Culture: A Menu of Ethnic Diversity we are not given simple answers and or faulty origin stories. John LaFleur’s writing forces us to accept that South Louisiana culture, which he narrates through his extensive culinary knowledge, is a métissage—John LaFleur calls himself a Métis, which along with Creole, reflects the identity and culture of South Louisiana’s peoples and foodways. Moreover, chapter 7, “What is “Cajun” in Louisiana?” ought to be required reading for all members of the Louisiana restaurant, hospitality, and tourism community—that is, if they might consider forgetting sweeping narratives of uniformity, such as the generalization that New Orleans is Creole, and everything to the west of the city is Cajun. LaFleur’s book helps us to open our hearts and minds and bellies in order to embrace Louisiana’s ethnic diversity.”

-Dr. Robin White, Assoc. Professor Foreign Language & Literature, Nicholl’s State University, Thibodaux, La

“In his new book Their Words, Their Hands, Their Gifts, Louisiana’s Creole Food & Culture…. John LaFleur II has taken us on a tour. First, a tour de force of Creole recipes, but more than that, a tour of the memories and history we associate with our proud Creole ethnicity. Through language, history and recipes LaFleur II walks his readers through Creole culture and history, from our origins in France, Canada, Africa, and North America, to our home in Louisiana. Both a history and cooking lesson, the book is a great read if only for the recipes and secrets LaFleur II shares. I highly recommend this book. -Nick Douglas is a Creole author of Finding Octave: The Untold Story of Two Creole Families and Slavery in Louisiana and Reclaiming Black History: Finding Admirable Ancestors, A Wealth of Heroism and Traits that Shatter Defeatist Clichés. “ 

“This is an outstanding study of the formation and ingredients of traditional Louisiana culture using anthropology, geography, history, linguistics, and cooking.  It is a conscious rejection of previous studies which racialized and divided the culture and properly defines it as layers

of original cultures of Native Americans, Africans and Europeans merging to form the new Louisiana Creole at the heart of much of Louisiana, East Texas all the way to the West Coast of the USA. It properly and effectively rejects the widespread mythology assuming a separate, "white" Cadjan culture still too widespread in studies of Louisiana.  Its' impact should be found in any study of the formation of the many fascinating regional cultures of the USA and indeed, much of the world."  -Dr. Gwendolyn Midlo Hall, author-scholar, Africans In Colonial Louisiana: The Development of Afro-Creole Culture in the Eighteenth-Century

“There are many incredible discoveries to be found in John LaFleur’s writings.  Many of the long held beliefs regarding the Creole and Cajun cultures are dispelled through his meticulous research, uncovering the truth behind segregationist behaviors of the 20th century which continue today.  LaFleur sheds light on the Native American culinary contributions, revealing the true source of fabled dishes such as jambalaya and crawfish bisque.  This book will make you question everything you previously regarded as Creole or Cajun.” 

-Poppy Tooker, chef, culinary historian and host at “Louisiana Eats!”- Radio-Podcast, New Orleans, Louisiana
