    Difference between etoufee and creole: http://www.differencebetween.net/object/comparisons-of-food-items/difference-between-shrimp-etouffee-and-shrimp-creole/

    For the main definitely the chicken breast so people not familiar with the food will see something they recognize.  For the traditional dish I would say to serve etoufee instead of creole because creole typically has okra and a lot of people have strong feelings about not liking okra.  (I personally adore it!)

    For the carving station go for the beef tenderloin.  I love turkey and pork but this is the spot to offer the beef selection.

    For the sides I chose the dirty rice because that is a very traditional dish.  I picked the seasonal vegetables also for the people not familiar or comfortable with Cajun/Creole food (plus it’s healthy.)  The scalloped potatoes would be my other choice if the rice is nixed.

    I voted the free range chicken, since chicken is always one of the safest choices, the grilled veggies, the scalloped potatoes, the pasta primavera and the cajun turkey carvery. All safe choices, but also all delish!

    I love etouffee!  So I would serve that and then either the chicken or beef tenderloin (since these seem more traditional)…and definitely the scalloped potatoes!  I also like dirty rice but if you’re having rice with another dish I think I’d pick either the potatoes or veggies over it.  For the carving I thought either the turkey (fried turkey is awesome) or the pork loin sounded good.

    Yummy!

    I went for the shrimp creole and the chicken as your main dishes.  Based on the poll and the comments, it seems like people are pushing you toward the chicken and pasta  because more people might like that.  I certainly understand that, but I’m guessing you picked a Creole restaurant for a reason!  Run with it.  I would go for at least one traditional Creole entree and side, in addition to more “commonplace” foods.

    I agree..you picked a creole restaurant for a reason…make sure you get some of that!! You have to pick at least one creole option for your main! Smile  This makes me want to make some shrimp etouffee next week for dinner!
