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 food.
A must food for any Cajun event is crawfish etoufee.
For your hors d'oeuvres, we suggest that you serve Cajun boudin sausage or 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 that is served at these events is often homemade.
