Cajun and Creole Spices

Cajun and Creole cooking is an early example of fusion cooking. Cajun and Creole home chefs have hundreds of years of practice fusing their early, rustic French or French-colony food traditions with local produce and cooking techniques that they’d picked up along the way. These Americana cuisines find the sweet spot that incorporates Caraway Seeds and Filé Powder, or Bay Leaves and Cayenne Pepper, into a fragrant and savory whole. We also have Cajun and Creole Seasoning blends available if you want to make it even easier and eliminate mixing and measuring. Laissez les bons temps roulez!
