Discover Delicious Cajun Food
Cajun food is one of the "hottest" cuisines around -- not because it tastes hot, but because it tastes good. Whether it's jambalaya, gumbo, etouffee or any other house specialty, cajun food is one of the things tourists look forward to the most when they visit New Orleans. In fact, cajun food represents a natural lesson in the history of Louisiana. Over the years, Louisiana has had strong influences from many cultures, including Indian, Spanish, French, Acadian, African, Italian and more. Cajun food has evolved over the centuries as each ethnic group added it's own special touches to the local cuisine. Today's cajun food is so much more than simply adding hot sauce -- it's the melding of the flavors of many cultures into one.
But don't think that you have to visit New Orleans to enjoy delicious cajun food (though we'd love to have you).
