Delicious Delicacies from Louisiana

People and Food

Louisiana is one of the best places in the country for food. Here, you can find delightful dishes that you can’t find anywhere else in the country, especially since no grocery store imitations can quite match the original! Here is a list of delicious delicacies from Louisiana:


This is one fun dish. The name itself is even fun to say! Jambalaya is traditionally a combination of shrimp, sausage, and chicken, mixed in with long-grain rice. Simmered for a long period of time with tons of spices, it’s the perfect treat if you truly want to experience Cajun culture.


Another rice-based dish, gumbo is steamed with okra and dark stock. Seafood gumbo comes with shrimp. For land-lovers, you can’t go wrong with chicken and sausage gumbo! Regardless of the meat included in gumbo, you can’t go wrong with this tasty treat.


For Louisiana food on the run, the best sandwich around is a Po-Boy. The signature ingredient of this dish is long French-style bread. From there, fill it with your favorite meat, though typically they are filled with shrimp. Add some remoulade sauce, and you have a delightful meal right in your hands!


After a hearty Southern feast, beignets are the perfect desert. Pillow-y pieces of dough are showered with powdered sugar to create the best way to cap off a Louisiana-style meal!
