My mawmaw once told me , "You ain't a real cajun if you got to know what's in it!" as I
slowly stirred a bowl placed before me. Well, my mawmaw would understand that most of
my friends aren't real cajuns here in the burbs! So...what is Jambalaya?
Jambalaya (jum-buh-lie-yuh) is a rice dish containing a wide variety of meats and
vegetables made in a black cast iron pot. A New Orleans Creole-style "red" jambalaya
uses tomatoes and tomato sauce, as opposed to one made with only stock, a more
Cajun-style "brown" jambalaya. The most popular one cooked today and the one that we
prepare is chicken and sausage Cajun Jambalaya made with flavorful seasonings and that
special touch of the big, black pot!
