Cajun vs Creole

Historically, Creole refers to the descendants of the French and Spanish settlers in colonial Louisiana. Cajun, on the other hand, is derived from the term “les Acadians” to describe the population of French settlers that came over from Nova Scotia in the early 1700s.

Creole cuisine is typically thought of as city food, with an emphasis on complex sauces and slow-cooking that comes from a mix of European influences. Gumbo and jambalaya are classic Creole dishes, although Cajun takes have popped up as well. Meanwhile, Cajun cuisine is rustic and homey country food. Dishes like boudin and rice with gravy top the list.
