  • Hooks, Lies & Alibis: Louisiana’s Authoritative Collection of Game Fish & Seafood Cookery is a tribute to Louisiana’s time-honored fish and seafood tradition and cuisine. Like Folse’s other legendary books, Hooks, Lies & Alibis begins with a look to the past by co-author Michaela York. Through and because of fishing, fast and fish days have been observed, countries and empires built, and New Worlds conquered. The retail price of Hooks, Lies & Alibis is $59.95.
  • After the Hunt: Louisiana’s Authoritative Collection of Wild Game & Game Fish Cookery explores hunting history from cave man through American colonization, capturing in words and recipes man’s insatiable appetite for wild game. After the Hunt retails for $55.95.
  • The Encyclopedia of Cajun & Creole Cuisine traces Louisiana’s culinary heritage through 300 years of heritage cooking. Each of the seven primary nations that settled Louisiana are featured, including Native America, France, Spain, Africa, Germany, England, and Italy.
