This, combined with the Spanish gusto for piquancy, the native African ability for developing a slow cooking method to perfection, and the gift of herbs and spices from the Indians, makes for tasty beginnings of Creole cooking. Among the many mouth-watering Creole dishes here are gumbos, remoulade sauce, grillades and grits, chittlins, red beans, pecan pralines, beignets etc.
