A Mardi Gras themed wedding is a loud, happy event and the Cajun wedding food should be hot and spicy.
Cajun people are known for their good food, good wine, and good parties.
So, crank up the music and let the good times roll!
Along with bold spices, seafood is frequently used in Cajun cooking and should be a key part of your menu.
If you are wanting to serve a no fuss menu, then a must food for any Cajun event is Crawfish Étoufée served over rice. Add some hot bread and you have a complete meal that everyone will enjoy.
For hors d'oeuvre, you could serve Cajun boudin sausage balls which are very popular. Cajun boudin sausage is made from a blend of rice, spices and a meat, which can be pork, crawfish or alligator.
The food served at most Cajun events is homemade.
