Here at Superstar Cookout Menus, we believe the key to a fantastic cookout or barbecue is to have food choices that go well together and flavors that compliment each other. And what better way to ensure your cookout is a success than to use well-known, time-tested flavor profiles.
For our purposes, a “flavor profile” is the immediately identifiable combination of flavors that define a specific cuisine. It is how different regional ingredients are put together to create a unique and memorable dining experience.
For example, the idea of “Mexican food” conjures different food images and produces the anticipation of different flavors than if I say “Asian food” or “Cajun food”.
Ideally, creating the perfect cookout menu should be as simple as possible. To simplify the process, we create fictitious restaurants with flavor profiles famous the world over. As a result, each restaurant has a collection of recipes and food choices that makes creating the perfect cookout menu a snap.
Just put together a menu from the same flavor profile “restaurant”, and you are sure to have a memorable cookout or backyard BBQ that keeps your friends and family talking for weeks to come.
When you want to throw a Cajun BBQ party, just head to the Capt. Voodoo’s Cajun Grillhouse flavor profile. There you will find a collection of recipes chosen to bring Cajun cooking to your grill.
Flavor Profile: Cajun, Creole, Soul Food, Spicy, onions, celery, green pepper, tomatoes, parsley, cayenne, Cajun spice blends, blackening seasonings and hot sauce.
Inspiration: Cajun food is well known for its spicy seasonings and flavorful dishes. While best known for shrimp and seafood dishes, the spicy flavors hold up very well to grilled steaks, pork and chicken.
Think of firing up the grill on the Bayou and get ready for some spicy grilled food and flavorful sides that will have your taste buds thinking it’s Mardi Gras.
My take: Grilled steaks, pork and chicken flavored with Cajun seasonings served with cooling sides.
Maybe you need some inspiration to get the creative juices flowing for your Cajun BBQ party.
