Chef Lenny's Cajun Seasoning
How Chef Lenny's Cajun Seasoning came about....
Saturday, April 17th, 1993
I was in my restaurant kitchen preparing dinner on a very busy night and I received a request from a server that a customer wanted a grilled cajun chicken entree. Well, my spice rack was limited so I ran out to a nearby grocery store and bought a bunch of spices, ran back, made a blend and prepared a Cajun Breast of Chicken with Sauteed spinach and roasted peppers.
I then went out to greet my customers and was pleasantly interrupted by the gentleman who asked for the Cajun dish. He informed me that this was the best cajun blend that he ever had.
After the dinner rush was over, I then started to think "BIG". How can I get this blend out to others... Well, I started making the blend and giving it out as samples to my customers. Which then led to manufacturing, packing and selling out of my Restaurant. Success in the local neighborhood led to “BIGGER” thinking so the blend is now available nationwide.
