Here are some city classics and country favorites to add to your dinner plan on days you crave upscale creole as well as those you need down home comfort Cajun.
Creole vs. Cajun
The Roots of Cajun and Creole Cuisine – There are no quick listings of the difference… it’s a history lesson… but worth the read.
John Besh’s Creole Seasoning – great combination that is light on salt.
Grillades: Cajun vs. Creole – Nice explanation of how this dish differs from North to South and from back woods to country fair.
Crawfish Etouffee – works for shrimp as well.
