More Cajun Words




Category: Cajun Sayings and Stories | Posted: Mon Nov 06, 2006 3:06 am

Ok folks, these all deal with food.

Cafe au lait (kah-fay oh-lay) coffee with milk, or coffee milk as my Mom called it. We would dip our hot buttered toast into it. We were too young for full strength coffee, so it was served with a lot of milk.

Cochon De Lait (koh-shon-due-lay).it refers to a pig roast, of a suckling pig, slow roasted over an outside fire. The pig is hung over a hickory fire so the fat will drain out and drip into the fire causing the flames to raise again and smoke, thus crisping and flavoring the pigs skin turning it the color of dark honey.

COUCHE COUCHE (koosh-koosh).....a cajun cornmeal cereal, usually eaten with milk and/or syrup.

ETOUFEE (ay-too-fay)....literally means "smothered....a dish of onions, celery, garlic, and green peppers sauteed, in oil or butter, with a roux based sauce. It's usually made with shrimp or crawfish and it too is served over rice.

Be careful, I'll start with all the New Orleans idiosyncracies.
I admit, I have incorporated many cajun words into my vocabulary and they are descriptive beyond belief. I love 'em.

'Nawlins has a language of it's own. I love to hear native Orleanians talk.

Hey we have cush cush here too! Neat that one thing finally sounds familiar lol.

I've been on a crash course to learn as much as I can. Like how to pronounce any street name there and how to make my poor Alabama accent be understood lol

I had a Cajun friend that taught me words I never forgot but they were all bad except one and I can't spell it like it should be Creme de Chocola .If its right it should be Chocolate Ice Cream.Thats what she said anyway.I cook Chicken Gumbo the way she taught me.
