    It sounds like you have been eating Creole stuff, not Cajun. Creole food is more spicy and less flavor, while Cajun food is less spicy and more flavorful.

    If the spice/pepper overrides the entire dishes flavor, somebody has screwed it up.

    Sorry man. I have trouble imagining you with a delicate anything.

    Like tantrix said it ain't all about cayenne. Cayenne is used to bring out flavor, not burn you.


    Unless we're boiling crawfish. Then u gotta sweat so we don't have leftover beer.

    the last time i was over that way i was offered a dill pickle and even that was soaked in some sort of spicy goo. i should have known something was up when the old coonass (sorry but you're all coonasses to me lol) pulled out a 5 gallon laundry detergent bucket and it was fiilled with pickles. lol

    and no it wasn't soaked in detergent, he assured me the bucket was clean and perfectly safe. but to be honest that's the same incident that taught me to never accept anything offered to me by anybody wearing knee high white rubber boots. so far that has never ever worked out well for me.

    :rofl:

    Pickled stuff here can end up being hot, I'll admit that. I make some pickled quail eggs that will make your *** burn if you even fart. But, that's just the way I prefer them...they are normally a little milder.

    Have you ever had a good etouffee, jambalaya, gumbo etc?

    Damm I envy you. Seriously.

    I'm in a Ocean attached state and I barely get maybe 1 -2 seat'in of good seafood per month. I do love tuna and Florida's white rock shrimp tho, but prices of seafood has been skyrocketing. And the best seafood outlet knows this and the prices are even higher.

    What we are lacking are decent scallops and oysters. Ever since a local close-by bar closed ( Alligator Alley ) my choices of good cooked foods has disappeared like smoke in the winds of a hurricane :rofl:

    Born in N.O. lived in suburbs outside the big easy since I was two. N.O. is s great place to visit but you couldn't pay me to live there. The surrounding parishs (Counties in all other states) of Jefferson, St. Tammany and St. Bernard are a good place to live. Like anywhere else, they have good and bad neighborhoods.

    Both the Crawfish Festival and Cochon de Lait are in May, but we have festivals all year 'round, so you can still catch plenty. :cool:

    Someone told me about the Angola Rodeo this month an it sounded awesome, but we've been too busy to make it. Anyone know when the next one is? Isn't there a springtime one?

    I have to admit, only had crayfish once. Tasted like mud, smelled like carp. It was at a Chinese restaurant in virginia.

    I'm willing to give them another try where they actually know how to cook them.

    no sir, what you ate were ditch roaches, as in the nasty little crawdads found in roadside ditches in cities.

    or they might have been actual crawdads but raised on a farm. those are usually pretty nasty too, they either taste like mud or dogfood. catfish is another meal that you run into that problem with.

    and before anybody asks, no i don't eat the brains.

    Good grief...yeah, you need to eat the real deal man. Anybody who eats imported crawfish at an Asian joint gets what they got comin' to 'em. People in Virginia don't even know how to properly boil crawfish, much less some Chinese joint.
