Ma and Pa’s If You’re Hungry Cajun Cookbook, about 40pp.
by Charles and Ethel Cessac
Cooking on page 32
What a classic! I saw this book for sale with a bunch of other second-hand books in front of a houseboat/float home on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Poor John spotted it first and flipped straight to page 32. Imagine our surprise to have a convenient recipe for bear stew.
Given that I’m not likely to ever find that bear—haven’t even seen one in our trek across Canada, I decided I had to share the offering without making it. Hope you like the pic of the houseboat where you can buy the cookbook for yourself.
1 bear (if lucky enough to get one)
salt and pepper
Cut bear in bite-size pieces. Cover with brown gravy. Cook outside in big black pot over roaring fire. Feeds 1000 people. Add rabbits if more is needed, but do only if necessary, as most people do not like to find hare in their food.
