The difference between southern and Cajun cooking is spice. Cajun is about spice. I can't define southern cooking.


Cajun is a cuisine associated with a particular region of Louisiana. It is distinct from Creole and traditional southern fare. Cajun seasoning makes its way into all sorts of things, but putting Cajun spice on a hamburger does not make it Cajun cuisine.


at the same time, isn't there a lot of crossover between Cajun and Creole food......in a similar way as "country" and "southern" food?


Yes, largely due to the physical proximity of Cajun country to New Orleans and vice versa. For example, both Cajun and Creole have a version of jambalaya. If you order jambalaya, and it contains tomato, it is Creole. If there is no tomato, it is Cajun.

I never looked to much into it, but I have seen it described as the difference between Southern and Country food often comes does to the cost of the ingredients....as in country dishes traditionally are built around less expensive and more plentiful ingredients such as less expensive cuts of meat. I have also seen soul food described as dishes traditionally built from less expensive ingredients.

Cajun comes from Acadiana while Creole is French inspired. The French dumped their prisoners in that area and they established Acadiana. I lived in Lafayette which was in the heart of Acadiana. They have a name for mixed Black and Cajun people that I found highly offensive but they proudly claim that name.

I like seafood boils (like Boiling Crab style) with crawfish/shrimp, sausage, and crab/mussels/oysters.


I agree, I like this place we have down here in San Diego called Crab Hut.

it comes boiled in the bag and is REALLY good!
