The food of New Orleans echoes the city’s historically diverse population with influence from French, African, Spanish, Native American, Indian and Caribbean cuisine. Here we’ve got ‘blackened’ chicken served with cornbread and corn salad. ‘Blackening’ is a modern Cajun technique of caramelising fish or meat in spices and butter to make a delicious crust. For the main course there's jambalaya, which originated in Louisiana during Spanish rule as a local version of paella. Ingredients from the Caribbean and Latin America crept into the dish, and the smoky, spicy modern jambalaya was born. To cool everything off, for dessert there's ice cream studded with one of the most popular sweets in Louisiana - pecan praline!
