I can't remember the last time I ate anything I would call cajun or creole. It is very outside my normal range. I like it - but we never cook it. I don't think any restaurants around here in Massachusetts serve it.
Do people in areas outside of say Louisiana find this same thing?
We recently got a Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen here in our area. I am very anxious to try it. I love Cajun food but do not like to cook it myself. I made a big pot of gumbo a few months ago and my family loved it! But, I could not eat it because I had to put all those "things" in there.
I once gave my son a cookbook by Paul Prudhomme and he loves it! It is all Cajun recipes.

I love Cajun and Creole cooking. There used to be a chef from Louisiana Justin _________?. I think I made everything he ever cooked on the show. Now that I'm older I have it less but even when I eat it I use less spice. I love the Cajun Sparkle in the little packets that you get at Popeye's.
