Enjoy Zatarain's Jambalaya Mix for your next meal. Just add your favorite meat such as chicken, sausage, or andouille. Jambalaya is a Cajun/Creole dish made typically in a large pot (cast-iron) from a mixture of Cajun meats, rice, and seasonings blended to produce a delicious dish. Similar in many ways to Spanish paella, the term "jambalaya" is derived from the Spanish 'jamon' for ham. Jambalaya is pronounced 'jahm-buh-LIE-uh' or 'jum-buh-LIE-uh'.
The Zatarain's tradition of making amazing food was started by Emile A. Zatarain, Sr. In 1889, he obtained the company's first product trademark and started to market root beer. Shortly after, he began to produce mustards, pickled vegetables, and extracts. As the business grew, so did the demand for a broader range of products. Through their expertise in blending spices, the company established a reputation for making only the most authentic New Orleans-Style food. In 1963, the Zatarain family sold the business which was then moved to Gretna, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans, where it is still located today.
