There was a time I asked my friend what type of food most African-Americans enjoyed to eat and he told Cajun foods. Not surprisingly, I hear this answer from the majority of people whom I ask. Why is this so?
speaking as a real cajun, i can first tell you that African Americans don’t necessarily enjoy the "cajun" cuisine you’re referering to. There is a big difference between cajun food and creole food. They enjoy more a mixture of the two. The cajuns that migrated from Nova Scotia had to learn to cook from the land. They used every part of the animal they killed and used every spice they could get their hands on from the land to season the food. thus, the "cajun" cuisine you eat now. Slaves did not necessarily eat the cajun cuisine. They still cooked their own meals. Some slaves were Creole. Creoles were a mixture of black and spanish people. They too had their own style of cooking and their own spices. The two cultures were eventually merged into our melting pot here in Louisiana and that’s the "cajun" they eat. Hope I helped you understand a little better.
It is awfully good but anywhere in Louisiana is also very good.So, it would be a matter of taste.
For me it cajun food.
(Last time I went down to New Orleans I got it so bad it lasted for 3 days thanks to habenero pepper gumbo.
SO good but makes me SO mserable for such a LONG time!
Unfortunately, as we get older, we have a harder time consuming the food we once enjoyed with no side effects. Anything acidy (tomatoes, pepper, raw veggies, even dairy) can cause heartburn. I take it as a sign that I am not treating my body like I should.
