As you travel to the west of New Orleans you will soon enter Cajun Country! You’ve probably heard of Cajun food, but what does Cajun mean and where did it come from?
The term Cajun derives from the French Canadians who were exiled by the British from L’Acadie, or present day Nova Scotia, in the mid 18th century following the hostilities of the Seven Years’ War. They settled much of Southwestern Louisiana which became known as Acadiana and their culture is felt throughout much of New Orleans today, influencing everything from food traditions and folklore to music and festivals.
Cheré Dastague Coen expertly guides the reader through the culinary traditions, historical landmarks and area events of this exceptional region.
