    petlover's Note:

    I stumbled upon a video of his tv show. "You know why de shicken cross de road, haaah? Really, to run away from dem Cajuns, I tell you dat right now, cause Cajun will eat mos' any-ting, an dey love to cook shicken." Cooking time is approximate since he says to "cook it a long time"...Id say 2 hours or more

      5 stars!
      Only substitution was in the wine (got something apparently similar to Sauternes).
      Not only did the bongo come out incredibly tasty, it also more closely resembled the gumbo's I've had in Nola more than any of the recipes I've tried from the food network folks (nothing against them, and those DID come out tasty, JW's took me back there).

      When it comes to Cajun, "dere aint nobody better'n Justin; I garontee!! This takes me back to summers on "de bayou" going crabbing with friends. Absolutely perfect!!!! I used Tabasco sauce rather than the Louisiana hot sauce- personal preference. Pretty sure if the family could have found a way to lick the pot, they would have.
