WHAT IS JAMBALAYA

Le Jambalaya, joyau de la gastronomie louisianaise, incarne l’essence même de la cuisine du Sud des États-Unis. Ce plat, riche en couleurs et en saveurs, est un véritable patchwork culinaire qui mêle riz, viandes variées, fruits de mer et légumes, le tout relevé par un assortiment d’épices exquises.

Les racines du Jambalaya plongent dans le terreau fertile du métissage culturel de la Louisiane, reflétant les influences espagnoles, françaises, créoles, cajun et africaines. Son nom évoque le mystère de ses origines, pouvant remonter au mot provençal “jambalaia”, au terme séminole pour “fête”, ou encore à l’expression créole pour “jambon à la ya”, où “ya” ferait référence au “riz” en langues d’Afrique de l’Ouest.

La polyvalence du mélange d'épices Jambalaya est reconnu aux États-Unis, il peut entrer dans la composition de jambon, de saucisses comme l’andouille, de crevettes, d’huîtres ou de bœuf.

En Provence dans le Sud de la France, il prend des airs méditerranéens avec de la volaille et du riz au safran. Les oignons, le céleri et les poivrons, mijotés dans un bouillon de poulet ou de fruits de mer et rehaussés de tomates3

Plus qu’un simple mets, le Jambalaya est un mélange d'épices symbole de convivialité et de partage, un pilier de la culture louisianaise. Il est synonyme de festivités et de rassemblements, incarnant l’esprit communautaire de la région. Gonzales, en Louisiane, s’enorgueillit même du titre de “capitale mondiale du Jambalaya”.

JAMBALAYA AND ITS HISTORY

The Cajuns or Jambalaya, descendants of French Acadians, are the heirs of a tumultuous past. Originally from Nova Scotia, they were deported to Louisiana during the tragic “great disturbance” of 1750, imposed by the English. They made their home in the inhospitable swamps of the Mississippi bayous, a wild and strange territory where they had to adapt to survive. This mixture of spices and aromatics is the fruit of their ingenuity and their adaptation to this hostile environment. Combining paprika, coriander, mustard, turmeric, fennel, cumin, black pepper and garlic, it makes an exquisite court-bouillon for shellfish, offering full-bodied, spicy and very aromatic notes.
