Mardi Gras reminds chefs of the versatility of Cajun spices

Mardi Gras reminds chefs of the versatility of Cajun spices

Mardi has been and gone, and the dazzling costumes that were on display will have been consigned to a cupboard or fancy dress box until next year.

The music has faded and the party atmosphere has begun to die down, but one thing that won't vanish is the demand for authentic Cajun cuisine – and that usually means a healthy dose of Blackened Cajun Seasoning.

Cajun food has a heady mix of elegance and earthiness unmatched by any other regional cuisine in the US and the fresh, no fuss approach taken by Cajun chefs is what has made the food so popular the world over.

The base of all good Cajun cooking has its origins in fine French cuisine and is as follows, sweet red peppers, onion and celery – also known as the holy trinity.

However, good Cajun food also requires good-quality spices - and there is non more distinctive that Blackened Cajun Seasoning, which can transform a bland piece of chicken into a southern State masterpiece.
