Genuine Cajun. Uniquely Creole.

Creole = a variety of combinations of French culture with Spanish, African or Caribbean cultures in colonial Louisiana.

Cajun culture = French colonial culture melded with mainland French traditions already in Louisiana, and with Spanish, Native American, English & German influences. Slow-cooked & highly seasoned food, heartfelt music & carefree attitude...are things associated with the culture.
