Chef Paul Prudhomme Signature & Bio
Chef Paul Prudhomme is a top chef known for his Cajun seasonings. He is sometimes mixed up with the actor Dom Deluise who also happens to author some cookbooks. The two have an amazing similarity. Like some of the other nationally-known TV chefs, Chef Paul's cookbooks are mainstream and are easy to find secondhand or used. On the other hand, a signed book by Prudhomme is somewhat harder to find. I have though, come across one or two during my years of cookbook collecting. Fortunately, unlike some of the other famed chefs, Chef Paul's signature is somewhat easy to make out as he carries over the "C" in "Chef" to make his "P" in "Paul" (see bottom of this post for a sample of Prudhomme's signature).
I often see signed Prudhomme books online for outrageous prices to the upwards of $200. These books though are valued substantially lower and sell for about $25-$30 signed so beware of being suckered in to a crazy price.
