Cajun Special

06 Jul 2010 one comment Bracha Shor Categories MenusTags , , , ,

This week (July 8/9th) we will have a Cajun special.  There will be:

    Appetizer:

    Jalapeno Popper (a jalapeno pepper stuffed with peanut butter, if  you have never tried this, it is delicious, though different – the peanut butter helps mitigate the heat). You are supposed to eat the whole pepper at once, so that the the peanut butter cools down the pepper’s spiciness while you eat it.

  • or Cajun Caviar (a black eyed pea spread for Challah)
  • Fish Course:

  • Fish Gumbo (has okra)
  • Main Course:

  • Chicken and Spicy Sausage Jambalaya (includes rice)
  • or Cajun Chicken
  • Side Dishes (pick 2):

  • Red Beans and Rice (or Corn Bread)
  • Bourbon Sweet Potatoes
  • Smothered Corn (Maque  Choux)
  • Country Smashed Potatoes
  • Dessert for an additional $2 a serving

  • Bourbon Bread Pudding
  • Pecan Pie (with Chocolate)

Let’s kick it up a notch…. This week we are doing a $15 Cajun special.  If you would like to try the special with less heat or more heat, you must make a special request – otherwise, the heat is going to be approximately a 3 on a 1 to 10 scale.

Interesting fun facts about Cajun food:  first, the name Cajun comes from “Acadian” – which was the name for French people who were displaced from Canada and moved down to Louisiana in the 1800s or so.  Gumbo is a Bantu (Angolan) word for Okingumbo which is the name of the Okra plant.

If you tried the special, please make a comment here and let us know what you think. Take care.
