Jared Bourgeois was raised in the heart of cajun country in a tiny town between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. He learned to cook from his family. With a vegetable garden in the backyard and a freezer stocked with catfish and crawfish, it was pretty much a given Bourgeois would learn to cook. He went professional with that passion when he opened his food truck, Jambalaya Bros. He now brings all that zesty cajun flavor to Washington DC.
You’ll find plenty of classic cajun dishes at Jambalaya Bros. There is, naturally, jambalaya as well as dirty rice and, of course, gumbo. However, you can also sample some lesser-known dishes of the region. Try some shrimp etouffee or corn maque choux to expand your cultural palate a bit. Regardless of the dish you choose, it’s all packed with the rich blend of seasonings that make up that spicy cajun flavor. If you’re in need of a vendor, book Jambalaya Bros for your next event. Guests will not leave hungry chowing down on these hearty eats.
