Living in America has many benefits, one of which is our ease of access to all different types of foods and flavors. One of the most famous types of fusion cuisines has grown to be Cajun, which blends together Southern flavors with French tradition, creating a culinary delight.
While this type of food is always available in New Orleans, many may be surprised that it is also available in authentic eateries throughout the U.S.
