Colonel Lee's Private Stock is "Certified Creole"!
Creole and Cajun foods are very different from one another and distinct in their own ways. Creole spices were influence by a "Blending of cultures" of Native American, Spanish, French, Italian, German, African, and all early immigrants settling American colonies.
Creole kitchens in those very early days were generally in the aristocratic homes and plantations of southern Louisiana and based on rich creamy butter.

Cajun cuisine came years later as the French Acadians arrived from Nova Scotia. Their cuisine is more related to the rural farming areas and based on lards and animal fats.
