There's a restaurant somewhere in Nebraska where you will find people waiting in a line around the block for carp. It looked breaded and fried to me. I'm pretty sure you have to use a pressure cooker because of all the bones.
Cast baits, not doubts.

"Masgouf" is the national dish of Iraqi, which is carp grilled over open flame, then finished on the coals.

I have never had carp cooked that way, but it is great for bluefish and perch, and I have heard it work great for stripers too.

Carp is the most popular fish in my country for both eating and fishing.

On the eating side, we have a fish soup in Hungary which is like a national food here and considered famous, the main fish is the carp in it. You can make a very good dish out of carp, but for most people, it will be strange. It tastes different from the seafish that most people know and even from a freshwater fish like walleye. If anyone is interested, just go ahead and try it, you may or may not like it, but at least it should be cheap.

On the fishing side:
Regarding equipment a lot depends on the size of the fish and the time you have available. If you are using rod pods, alarms, etc, you must have at least a couple of days available on the bank. People use this method when they are after trophy fish. You should consider this method as a strategy game, completely different from lure fishing for bass. You setup a trap for the big fish and try to fool it, while avoiding the small ones. Also it is quite a challenge to land a 50-70lbs carp, or even a bigger one.
If you are after smaller fish and you have limited time, you should check out feeder, match or pole fishing, these are a lot more active methods then the big fish hunting. You can catch a lot of fish in a short period of time if you are doing it right.
UK is one of the best in carp fishing, they have plenty of books, articles, videos on carp fishing, available in english, you will understand those.
