Philadelphia has a long and rich culinary history. Although most people across the United States think of the famous Philly cheese steak when they hear Philadelphia, the city actually has a lot more to offer in terms of food. Eatible Delights Catering is proud to serve the greater Philadelphia area with a variety of delicious food items. Although many of Eatible Delights menu items have been inspired by the Philly food culture, other regional influences have certainly played a role. In fact, Eatible Delights has designed an entire menu based on southern Creole and Cajun cuisine.
Not everyone understands the difference between Creole food and Cajun cooking. Although travelers may find a mix of Creole and Cajun foods throughout the South, Creole is primarily associated with New Orleans. Cajun cooking also finds its roots in Louisiana, but more from the outskirts of the city and in Louisiana’s bayous. Both Creole and Cajun cuisine, offer some of the tastiest food items. Creole and Cajun cooking are both influenced partially by French cuisine along with Southern ingredients.
Creole cooking became increasingly popular through the emergence of New Orleans based chef Emeril Lagasse. Chef Emeril burst onto the television scene with a variety of cooking shows. Prior to Emeril’s successful television career, he was the executive chef at one of New Orleans most famous Creole themed restaurants, Commanders Palace. Now, New Orleans is full of celebrity chefs and fabulous restaurants that feature both Creole and Cajun foods.
Thankfully, foodies don’t have to travel all the way to Louisiana for some authentic Cajun and Creole cooking. Now, customers can call upon Eatible Delights Catering for a full line of Cajun and Creole foods. In fact, Eatible Delights Catering is now featuring a menu that includes items such as: Creole Crab Cakes, Cajun Chicken Pasta, Grilled Shrimp Remoulade, Seafood Gumbo, Blackened Catfish, Sweet Potato Cheesecake, and much more.
