Blend No.2 Cajun - Associated with Louisiana and the deep south, used in Creole cooking. It is a wonderful style of cooking that we love, it is all about flavour.
As a BBQ rub it will bring your meals alive, cook a spachcock chicken on the BBQ in less than 40 minutes and serve with a simple salad, coleslaw and some crusty fresh bread.
Cajun was originally cooked in a single iron pot, typically on an open fire. With our Cajun mix and recipe card you can make a tasty dish in less than 30 minutes.
All of our spice mixes are hand blended by us to our own recipes in small batches. Our suppliers source our spices direct from the producers all over the world so you get fresh, full flavoured spices that take your cooking to another level.
We cannot tell you how much of a difference using the right spices can make. It is difficult to keep all the spices you need to make these dishes, so buying them here, already blended, will save you time and also money as you will typically get 5 meals for 4 people from one 50g tin or 50g refill packs.

Creole cooking at its best, it’s easy and oh so tasty! We’ve used a meat substitute for a vegetarian version but this can simply be replaced with chicken, prawns or chorizo.

Spice Master Tips
Frying - Frying the onions, carrots and celery for a few minutes allows them to develop flavour.
Flour - We use flour to thicken the sauce. By adding it at this stage the flour is cooked out so that you will not taste it in the finished dish.
Stock - We add the liquid slowly to the pan so that we can mix it with the flour paste. Adding it too quickly will create lumps in the sauce and will not allow it to thicken.
Fresh - We add some ingredients towards the end. These are often delicate flavours and we want to add a fresh note to the dish.
