I went to the Rainforest Cafe in Chicago a few years ago, and happened to order the Jambalaya. I had never had Jambalaya, and from the menu it looked a good choice, but I can honestly say, It was the best meal I have ever eaten. I have tried to make this dish many times, and have now (I think) simplified and perfected it. As an Englishman, no-one over here has even heard of Jambalaya, but I have made this dish for lots of friends, who all absolutely love it, and I swear it is the closest I have come to that fabled recipe. It is a cheat in that I use some store-bought items, but if you know how to substitute with fresh produce then let me know. I hope you all enjoy this meal as much as I do!
