Where does this Cajun mix come from?
The history behind the Cajun mix
The French Cajuns are the descendants of the Acadian people, the French from Nova Scotia who were deported to Louisiana by the English during the tragic "Great Upheaval " in 1750. They set up in "bayous" in the Mississippi river, strange and inhospitable marshlands crawling with wild animals, as this was the only place they were allowed to settle.
