    Louisiana is home to two unique types of cuisine: Creole and Cajun. Although they are often grouped together, they are two distinct cuisines that evolved separately.

    This Challenge is to test your knowledge of Creole and Cajun cuisines and cultures. Three members of your team must read the following questions and zmail the answers to lazyme along with your team name. The question must be fully answered correctly in order to be considered correct.


    1. This autobiographical song was the first song broadcast back to earth from the moon by the astronauts of Apollo 12. It became very popular and has become the symbol of Cajun music. What is the name of the song and the writer?


    2. This Creole restaurant in the French Quarter of New Orleans is credited with inventing a red cocktail called the Hurricane. It is reported to have been invented in the 1940s. The story of the drink’s origin holds that, due to difficulties importing Scotch during World War II, liquor salesmen forced bar owners to buy up to 50 cases of their much more abundant rum in order to secure a single case of good whiskey or scotch. The barmen at this restaurant soon came up with an alluring recipe to clear through their bulging surplus of rum. When they decided to serve it up in a tall, jaunty Hurricane glass shaped like a hurricane lamp, the Hurricane cocktail was born. The drink is a mixture of sweet fruit juices and rum. What is the name of this restaurant?


    3. The photo below is a Creole cuisine dish made with poached eggs, artichoke bottoms, creamed spinach and Hollandaise sauce. It is found on the menu of many Creole restaurants in New Orleans including Antoine's, where it was invented. What is the name of this dish and who was it named for?


    4. Two famous Cajun celebrity chefs each worked in the kitchen in the famed Commander’s Palace in New Orleans. One was Paul Prudhomme. Who is the other one?

    5. What are the 3 colors of Mardi Gras and what does each color represent?


    6. "Étouffée" is a spicy and delicious Cajun stew traditionally made with crawfish, vegetables and a dark roux. It is usually served over rice. What is the literal translation of "Étouffée" ?


    7. A blend of African and Cajun music highlighted by the accordion and the washboard is called ________?


    8. In 1847 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow published an epic poem that is the story of two star-crossed Acadian Lovers who are divided by the Acadian Expulsion exile never to be reunited. For over a century, Americans view the Acadian Culture through the prism of this literary classic. What is the name of this poem?


    9. A small wooden boat used in the marsh, bayou or swamp for fishing or getting to the duck blind. It is usually rowed or poled through shallow water. What is the name of this boat?


    10. What is the official dish of the state of Louisiana?


    11. There are as many variations of jambalaya as there are cooks. Creole jambalaya originated from the French Quarter of New Orleans, in the original European sector. It was an attempt by the Spanish to make paella in the New World, where saffron was not readily available due to import costs. Creole jambalaya is sometimes known as ‘red jambalaya’. Cajun jambalaya is sometimes known as 'brown jambalaya'. What ingredient does Creole jambalaya use that Cajun jambalaya does not?

    12. The garlic braids that hang in the French Market of New Orleans are called what?


    13. There is only one real pepper sauce in Louisiana. Founded by Edmund McIlhenny, Tabasco has been produced on this island by the McIlhenny company since 1868. On which island was this concoction created?


    14. This voodoo queen from New Orleans during the 1830’s is remembered for her skill and compassion for the less fortunate. Her spirit is considered one of the central figures of Louisiana voodoo, and gamblers yell her name shooting dice for luck. Her grave is said to be visited more than Elvis Presley's. What is her name?


    15. This English idiom originated in New Orleans over a century ago. First referenced in poetry, the phrase was a common dialogue element between the performers and crowd at traveling minstrel shows in the region. More recently, the phrase has become a chant of team support. It is most widely used by fans of the New Orleans Saints, an American football team. What is this phrase?

    Answers for the trivia quiz:

    1. Louisiana Man by Doug Kershaw. I will also accept Rusty Kershaw as he was credited with this on one site that I found. This was a 2-part question and needed both the song and a name.
    2. Pat O'Brien's Bar
    3. Eggs Sardou or Oeufs Sardou. AND as this was a 2-part question, they were named for Victorien Sardou, a famous French dramatist of the 19th century, who was a guest in New Orleans when the dish was invented.
    4. Emeril Lagasse
    5. purple=justice, green=faith, gold=power
    6. Smothered
    7. Zydeco
    8. Evangeline, or Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie
    9. Pirogue
    10. Gumbo however, some sources say there isn't a state dish.
    11. Creole jambalaya includes tomatoes whereas Cajun does not.
    12. Prayer beads
    13. Avery Island
    14. Marie Laveau
    15. 'Who dat?' The entire chant is: "Who dat? Who dat? Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints?"
