It's All for the Smiles

If you ask an entertainer why they went into the business, they might tell you that they did it to make others happy. Whether that entertainer is a comedian, a musician, or a magician, there's almost certainly a part of them that lights up when they know they've made someone else smile. If you understand this as a member of the audience, you can come to see entertainment in a different light. It is as much about the person on stage as it is about you. We ask that you keep that perspective in mind as you read this blog about entertainers.

Authentic Cajun Cuisine Everyone Should Try At Least Once

If you're looking to try something new and spicy, Authentic Cajun cuisine is definitely worth exploring. With its blend of French, African, and Native American influences, Cajun food is known for its bold and complex flavors that are sure to awaken your taste buds. Here are four Cajun dishes you should try.


Jambalaya is a one-pot dish that combines rice, vegetables, meat, and spices into a flavorful and hearty meal. Traditionally made with chicken, sausage, and shrimp, jambalaya can be adapted to include any protein of your choice. The rice is cooked in a savory broth that's flavored with tomatoes, onions, garlic, and a blend of Cajun spices like paprika, cayenne pepper, and thyme. It's a filling and comforting dish that's perfect for a chilly evening.


Gumbo is another one-pot dish that's a staple of Cajun cuisine. It's a thick and hearty stew that's usually made with a combination of meat or seafood, vegetables, and a roux (a mixture of flour and fat that's cooked until brown). Okra, which is a popular vegetable in the South, is often added to gumbo to give it a thicker texture. The dish is usually served over rice and can be made as spicy or mild as you like.

Crawfish Etouffee

Crawfish etouffee is a classic Cajun dish that's made with crawfish (or shrimp) that's been cooked in a rich and flavorful roux-based sauce. The sauce is usually made with onions, celery, bell peppers, garlic, and a blend of Cajun spices. It's then thickened with roux and simmered until the flavors meld together. The dish is typically served over rice and is a perfect example of Cajun comfort food.


While not a main course, beignets are a quintessential dessert in Cajun cuisine. These deep-fried pastries are made with a dough that's similar to that of a donut. They're fried until they're golden brown and then dusted with powdered sugar. Beignets are often served with a strong cup of coffee, making them the perfect way to end a spicy and satisfying Cajun meal.

Authentic Cajun cuisine offers a unique blend of flavors and influences that are sure to tantalize your taste buds. Whether you're in the mood for a hearty stew, a spicy rice dish, or a sweet and decadent dessert, Cajun cuisine has something to offer. So the next time you're looking to try something new, give Cajun food a try. You won't be disappointed.
