South Louisiana, more than any other part of the United States, holds its cuisine near and dear to its heart. The region’s cuisine is the embodiment of the cultures and traditions brought by its settlers from Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and Canada and shared, neighbor to neighbor, over hundreds of years.
It is in this mysterious intertwining of cultures and traditions that our company’s founder finds his heritage – he is a Cajun, born and raised in South Louisiana.
It seems everyone has heard of Cajun and Creole cuisine, though few actually are able to recite their respective origins. Simply put, Cajun cuisine is rooted in the kitchens of rural Southern Louisiana and Creole cuisine is rooted in the more sophisticated kitchens of New Orleans.
When the Acadians (now pronounced “Cajuns”) first began settling the area back in the day, there was no social contact with the New Orleans “Creoles”. Rugged and adaptable, the Cajuns were of the land. Unlike the Creoles, for the early Cajuns, life was a day-to-day, season-to-season battle to sustain their families. From the beginning, this difference in style of living determined the differences between Cajun and Creole cuisine.
The Creoles (Europeans in derivation) led a life of relative luxury in and around New Orleans. Consequently, the dishes that emerged from the Creole kitchens reflected the haute cuisine of their homelands. The Creoles were known to dine on an array of sophisticated dishes that featured the natural riches of the Gulf and local plantations.
While the Creoles were enjoying their sophisticated cuisine, the Cajuns were feasting on “one pot” meals, that is, meals that were prepared by combining the local ingredients in a single cooking vessel. With the abundant fish, shellfish, vegetables, rice and spices, the Cajuns developed enduring dishes, including jambalaya, gumbo and etouffee.
Louisiana Food Company stands on this Cajun tradition!
