Our Cajun Food website has been carefully tailored to bring you the best cajun recipes from the mild and flavorful to the hot and spicy. The aromatic vegetables bell pepper, onion, and celery are called by some cajun chefs the holy trinity of Cajun Food.
Cajun Food originates from the French-speaking Acadian or "Cajun" immigrants in the Acadiana region of Louisiana, USA. It is often called a rustic cuisine and locally grown food predominate with simple preparations. An authentic Cajun food meal is usually a three-pot affair, with the first pot being the main dish, the second to steamed rice, skillet cornbread, or some other grain dish, and the third containing whatever vegetable is plentiful for that years crops.
Cajun Food/Cuisine was developed out of necessity. The Acadian refugees, farmers reduced to nothing by the British expulsion, had to learn to live off the swampy land they lived in and quickly adapted to the French rustic cuisine with locally grown foods such as rice, crawfish (craw daddys), and sugar cane.
