The spices and flavors of Louisiana are among the most distinctive regional cuisines in the United States. It’s a mix of flavors and influences, with French, Mexican, American and Southern flavors and textures merging to create food that is every bit as unique as the accents of the bayou. Dirty rice is staple side dish, but also expect silky crepes and thick sauces, and plenty of seafood, as it is readily available in Louisiana. Gumbo and jambalaya, among the most familiar foods in the Cajun menu, can be made with virtually any vegetables and meats, and new combinations are welcome in this space. If you know how to make a light and fluffy beignet, we’d love to see that recipe, too. Pralines are the perfect nutty finish to a Cajun meal. All types of combinations are welcome here.
