Cajun Country Ethnic Food Trends and Cuisines

Cajun Cuisine and Food Culture


"Cajun Food" comes from the deepest Southern parts of Louisiana and Mississippi. The Cajun Cuisine is a mix of French, Canadian, African and Native American influences. A lot of people don’t know that the typical Cajun Food was developed by extremely poor people. Refugees and farmers used what they had to feed large families with the cheapest foods and had no access to complimentary spices.

A Cajun Meal is usually cooked in three different pots. One pot is used for the rice or cornbread, another is used for vegetables and the third is used for the main dish. Onions, celery and bell-peppers are basic Cajun Cuisine Ingredients. Cajun food never inspired a second thought and was rather ordinary. This type of Flavorful Cajun Cooking branched out into the southern states with each creating a new take on old recipes.

Cajun Key Ingredients & Special Recipes


When Acadian farmers were made destitute by the British, the Cajun Community learned to adapt local ingredients such as sugar cane, rice and crawfish into a whole new cooking culture. The seasonings used are mainly cayenne pepper, parsley, bayleaf and scallions. There are as many different recipes for Cajun Spice blends as there are Cajuns. Most Cajun foods start with the making of a roux, most Cajun Cooks start by adding equal amounts of flour and oil to their cast iron skillet.

There are so many great blends available in Cajun recipes which include any of the following ingredients like: Paprika Ground cumin, Salt Garlic powder, Onion powder, Black pepper, dried thyme, dried oregano, Cayenne pepper, Cardamom Caraway seeds, dried basil, Filé powder and Dry mustard. Cajun Recipes include gumbo, jambalaya and chicken fricassee and all Cajun spice mixtures share certain ingredients. Today, many Creole and Cajun recipes have become intertwined creating what is now known as Cajun Cuisine. The most fresh and new techniques and foods are being routinely added to Cajun Cuisine.

Cajun Specialty Cookwares and Kitchen Supplies


The classic Black Cast Iron Skillet plays an important role in Cajun cuisine and South Louisiana Kitchens. Cajuns love to cook in the large heavy pots because the dense, heavy metal of the black iron skillet absorbs heat quickly, distributes it evenly, and cools down slowly. This makes it the perfect utensil for the long slow process of making a roux.

Cajun Cookwares includes special and unique cooking equipment called the Jambalaya Pot. Cajun people love cooking on the stove and nothing compares with the fineness of this Cast Iron Cookware. Cajuns find that cooking a big southern dish on an outdoor patio cooker with friends and family makes great fun for everyone. Cajun Kitchen Appliances consist of turkey fryers, deep fryers, cast iron cookware, patio cookers, Cajun Jambalaya Pots and more.
