Cajun Food Delight

I found myself in the heart of Cajun country.  I have long had an admiration for “Cajun” food, or at least the versions that have been presented to me in the North.  When I knew I was coming to Louisiana, I was excited to get my hands (and stomach) on some Cajun specialties.  In the…
