Biographical Notes

Jamie Jensen was immersed in road trip culture from an early age. He grew up in Southern California, back when freeways were new, cheeseburgers cost a quarter, and every beach had a beachfront amusement park. After a three-year stint bumming around the country, making hay in Kansas, and ghostwriting a book for the Grateful Dead, Jamie set to work researching and writing Road Trip USA. Since then he's traveled more than 400,000 miles in search of the perfect stretch of two-lane blacktop. When not crisscrossing the country by car, he rides his bike whenever possible. Jamie lives with his wife, Catherine, and twin boys, Tom and Alex, in New York City, at the east end of the Lincoln Highway.

Chasing the Gator

Isaac Toups, Jennifer V. Cole
Authors:
Isaac Toups, Jennifer V. Cole

The definitive modern Cajun cookbook fromTop Chef fan favorite Isaac Toups and acclaimed journalist Jennifer V. Cole, featuring 100 recipes and stories from the backcountry to the bayouCajun culture is one of the last bastions of true American regional cooking, emphasizing frugality, rural ingenuity, and closeness to the land to extract maximum use--and maximum flavor--out of everyday ingredients.No one knows this food better than acclaimed chef Isaac Toups. He grew up deep in the Atchafalaya Basin of Louisiana, where his ancestors settled 300 years ago, and where hunting and fishing trips still provide the foundation for family celebrations. These communal experiences--shrimp and crawfish boils, boucheries (hog killings), fish frys, and backyard barbecues--are touchstones for his authentic Cajun cooking.In this, the first major Cajun cookbook in a generation, Toups and Cole show how--and what it means--to cook Cajun food today. Salty anecdotes, in-depth tutorials, and rich photographs guide readers through Toups' home country, and one hundred recipes translate old-school Cajun flavors for the modern home table: dirty rice, cracklins, boudin balls, cochon de lait, and much more. Along the way, you'll learn how to butcher a hog, make the most of each season, and engineer an on-the-fly barbecue pit--as well as the secret to Isaac's 15-minute roux (normally an hourlong process).
