ALL ABOUT NEW ORLEANS CUISINE

Creole cuisine is often referred to as “city food.” It traces back to 18th century New Orleans. Creole blends influences from around the world and is considered high-class. Complex sauces and dishes with higher-priced ingredients are Creole.

Cajun cuisine is often referred to as “country food.” Its origins date back to the Acadian French colonists who settled in the region now called Acadiana. Cajun food is bursting with spices and most dishes start with the “holy trinity of Cajun cuisine” – onion, celery, and bell pepper. But with Cajun cooking, it really is all about the spice!
