Red Cajun (redneck + Cajun)

ABC Nightline‘s “People’s Platelist” winning chef, Henry Chandler, was born in Saint Maurice, Louisiana. “I’m a red Cajun – little bit of redneck, little bit of Cajun,” Chandler told Nightline‘s television audience in October 2010.

“Red Cajun” appears to be a term that is seldom used. The “red” might come from “red ass” (someone with great passion) as well as “redneck.” A popular fishing line is called “Cajun Red,” but the trademark is from only 2003.


Wikipedia: Cajun
Cajuns (pronounced /ˈkeɪdʒən/; French: les Cadiens or les Acadiens, [le kadjɛ̃, le zakadjɛ̃]) are an ethnic group mainly living in Louisiana, consisting of the descendants of Acadian exiles (French-speaking settlers from Acadia in what are now the maritime provinces of Canada - New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, or Prince Edward Island). Today, the Cajuns make up a significant portion of south Louisiana’s population, and have exerted an enormous impact on the state’s culture.

In fairness, though, Fenk, if Texas gets tanks then you shouldn’t stop the Red Cajuns from getting them as well, if they want them.

People’s Platelist Winner: Henry Chandler of Henry’s Louisiana Grill
Georgia Chef Credits a Loving Nanny, Upstanding Daddy, and a Fight With Cancer

His father wanted him to become a civil engineer but Henry Chandler III followed his heart, filling a fry vat with alligator and thrilling crowds hungry for Cajun food.

“We love fried food! Hell yeah, we’re from Louisiana, baby! We’ll fry your kids if we get a chance!” said Chandler, chef at Henry’s Louisiana Grill in Acworth, Ga., and winner of the title “Nightline” People’s Platelist.

Chandler grew up on a 1,500-acre farm run by his hard-working father, who hoped his son would go into engineering. Instead, he was inspired by the kitchen skills he learned at the elbow of his childhood nanny and Cajun friends’ families. He became an outstanding chef.

“I’m a red Cajun – little bit of redneck, little bit of Cajun,” said Chandler. After growing up in “redneck” rural Saint Maurice, La., he went to college at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (known locally as “Ooh La La").
