    Fyi this cook book (4th edition) is available free online as there are no copyright restrictions here:

    Scroll down and choose pdf unless you have a fave ebook format.
    At the bottom of the page you'll also see some related early cookbooks that may be of interest.
    There is a huge selection of free online cookbooks, I've used web sites such as the one above to research some sausage recipes, and you'd be surprised the kinds of recipes you'll find and how they differ from todays offerings.

    Love Louisiana cookbooks. My favorite is still "Talk About Good" from Lafayette.

    Since the last edition was 30 years ago it would seem that the time is ripe for an update.
