Jambalaya fun to say, fun to eat. It's originally a Caribbean Creole rice dish that has made it's way to Louisiana after being seasoned by both Spanish and French influence. It's said that when Spanish colonials tried to make paella without saffron, which was hard to get in America, they ended up creating Jambalaya. The chorizo in this dish brings some Latin attitude to this dish while the red wine and the unique oregano and basil salts in our specially blended Jambalaya Paste bring some French elegance. Our signature Cajun seasoning has been tweaked to perfection rounding off this dish as a true melting pot of flavors from around the world.
