What is the difference between Cajun and Creole? A search for recipes helped me answer this question and find more.
I had beef franks which I broiled. I also had chicken so it was time for Jambalaya which I never have really made. To me it is like the dish Latin Aroz con Pollo
(1) Both are strongly French, the Creoles and the Cajuns came to Louisiana by different paths.
(2) I heard that Creole has Chicken and/or beef and vegetables.
(3) In this internet the following was said.
Cajun includes seafood and more. Creole (jambalaya) tends to be reddened with tomato, while Cajun jambalaya tends to be brown and lack tomato.
I started looking through my cookbooks and the internet. I found in the Kosher Creole Cookbook (by Mildred L. Covert and Sylvia R. Gerson) . The chicken and sausage jambalaya looked good. The turkey one I would try another time. I did not try this one which included chopped tomatoes.
Tony Chachere's Cajun Country Cookbook ( I used to watch his TV shows) had a similar one Tomy's Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya. This is the one I went with which had also celery, onions, bell pepper, creole seasonings, onions and more. I also paprika and more
I made that recipe in crockpot and the the ingredients melded together, the rice with everything. Tasty, the meats infused into the stew and more.
My rating 9.2/10
