Making your own Creole seasoning is the key to capturing the flavours and aromas from this most cosmopolitan of cuisines. This unique style of cooking is a fabulous melting pot of food with influences from many cultures: Spanish, French, Portugese and Italian to name just a few. And it can be used for recreating the taste of many classic dishes: gumbos, dirty rice, yakamein, crayfish bisque or a traditional jambalaya are just a few dishes you could try.

Note: For the best flavour when making your blends, I advise using whole ingredients when you can. However, if you don't have all of them available just use quality pre-ground powders and reduce the quantity the recipe requires by half. For example, if the recipe says 2 tablespoons of cumin seeds and you only have pre-ground to hand, you would use 1 tablespoon of ground cumin and stir in with any other powders.
