Creole seasoning vs. Cajun seasoning

Cajun seasoning relies on the use of many peppers, such as white and black pepper, bell peppers and cayenne peppers. Cajun cuisine also incorporates paprika and garlic; also, the use of onion and celery is also common.

Creole cuisine is influenced by people born to settlers in French colonial Louisiana, specifically in New Orleans. Creole foods are a combination of many different cultures, from French to Irish to West African. Creole seasoning primarily relies on herbs like oregano, bay leaf, basil, thyme, rosemary, parsley and paprika.

Creole seasoning vs. Cajun seasoning really comes down to one question, do you want something spicy or something seasoned? If you want spicy, you’re more likely to enjoy Cajun foods. If you want something well-seasoned, opt for creole.
