The Cajun Food Company
We are a small family run business, cooking South Louisiana food in South East England. With a small family and overrun with boys I know what’s required to keep their tummy’s full.
Our meats are hot smoked over lump wood charcoal plus a handful of wood chips (in a Pitt Barrel smoker) and for a long time! Each dish is made up using a rich sauce and amazing spice mixes! And, most using the ‘holy trinity’ of ingredients (celery, green pepper and onions). It’s warmth and happiness for the heart, tummy, and soul! I am able to produce vegetarian dishes, meaning ‘no person is left behind’.
Where possible I try to use local suppliers; our friendly village butchers are the best!
We are available for parties & corporate events. And you will find us at a few food festivals, street markets, and fairs.
