What is a Cajun Spice Mix?
The Cajun spice mix is a mixture of dried herbs and spices. The spice mixture has its origins in the state of Louisianna. This is a rather simple and rustic cuisine made from locally available ingredients. Closely related to Cajun cuisine is Louisiana Creole cuisine, which corresponds to a slightly more sophisticated style of cooking that developed in the cities with a focus on New Orleans.
