The Cajun style of cooking originates from Louisiana in the US, from a group of people who had French heritage, but were immigrants to Canada. They were exiled from Canada and eventually settled in the swamps and bayous of southern Louisiana.
Traditional dishes include gumbo and jambalaya, but there are so many ways to use the spice blend.
