How Blanchard’s Blend Cajun Seasoning came to be
As a young boy I was always interested in cooking. The older I got I would help my parents cater weddings and other functions. Then I realized I had a passion for cooking. I would spend the afternoons fishing in the Atchafalaya spillway with my friends, we would get home and start cooking and just come up with all kinds of recipes. So I had an idea of what I needed to try my own seasoning. I tried it the first time and had my buddy try it. He said I needed more salt so I tried it again with more salt and I said, “I got it!” I was making it for years and giving it to the neighbors and family when somebody said I needed to put it on the market, so I finally did so, here it is.
We have assisted with and cooked for several local organizations, including Ducks Unlimited Banquet, Dreams Come True Foundation, and Trinity Outdoors Disabled Adventures. Currently appearing on Cajun Liv’n N Cook’n TV show.
