Crazy Dick's Cajun Foods
Rich Curole, a native of the Bayou area of Louisiana moved to New England in 1991 and has spent the last nine years in Maine. After leaving bayou country he could no longer find Cajun seasonings worthy of the cuisine and began making his own seasonings out of necessity. This led him to the idea of starting a business making and selling Cajun seasonings made with all organic spices, while avoiding salt, preservatives and MSG.
Crazy Dick's Cajun Seasonings can be found at selected local purveyors of fine seafood, and local markets.
In addition, he developed an ecommerce site where he also sells selections of his product on line to customers all over the world.
