A Brief History:
Since Louisiana’s early days, pork has reigned supreme at pig roasts, believed to have been hosted by Native Americans, although they can also be traced to African, French, German and Spanish cultures. A wooden frame was built for smoking the meat over an open fire.
The group of people who eventually became known as Acadians or “Cajuns” spent difficult years finding a permanent home. In the early 1600s, they were transplanted from rural areas of western France and sailed to coastal Canada to establish the French colony called Acadia. Thousands relocated to southern Louisiana, where Cajuns developed their unique lifestyle.
The most notable aspect of Cajun culture is found in their cuisine, which mixes influences from other cultures within Louisiana, specifically Spanish, German, Italian, Creole, Native American, African and French. Even though Louisiana natural bayous and coastline demanded fishing, the main source for meat became the pig.
