Cajun and Creole

A Little Cajun and a Little Creole

Cajun and Creole cuisine is the ultimate in Southern Louisiana comfort food. Today Creole and Cajun cooking is often thought of as nearly interchangeable -- and while there are many similarities there are also pronounced differences.

Both Creole and Cajun cooks are proficient at using available ingredients and experimenting with whatever seasonings they have on hand. The result is almost always unique -- no two jambalayas or gumbos are ever exactly the same, but like their area these dishes are always full of rich flavor and are equally delicious.

Here is the ideal 4 jar spice set to stock your kitchen with the unique flavors of the Crescent City. Your selections are:

Blackened Seasoning – Looking for some Cajun Blackened heat and seasoning? Blackening produces a black, peppery crust, which sears in all the flavor and juices, making it a great choice for the grill. The spices used are commonly referred to as blackened spice or blackening seasoning. Blackening seasoning is used to treat all kinds of food, including shrimp, steak, chicken, pork and even vegetables.

Gulf Coast Bay Seasoning – Bay seasonings are used in numerous harbor towns across the US from the Chesapeake Bay area in Virginia, down around the Florida pan hanldle and even all the way out to Alaska but they seem to be most popular in the Gulf Coast region.
