With it being Fat Tuesday, we cannot go without talking about a classic. The French settlers brought beignets with them as they migrated to the eastern coast of Canada to an area called Acadia in the 17th century. Unfortunately, many Acadians were forced to migrate as the British came to control their area. As a result, many Arcadians settled in Louisiana. Their descendants became known as Cajuns. With their migration to the southern USA, they brought their culture, language,and cuisine. The mighty beignet continues to display that cuisine. During this time of year, you can find beignets in many places. Today, we are going to decide which beignets are better between the 2022 Universal Studios Florida Mardi Gras version in comparison to Disney’s Port Orleans Resort version.

Mardi Gras season at Universal Orlando brings parades, a new Tribute Store, costumed performers, brass bands, major concert events, and of course food. Over the last two years of Mardi Gras, the food offerings expanded in a magnificent way taking over several sections of Universal Studios Florida. This year Universal Orlando brought guests a fully dedicated vegan food tent. In case guests missed the theme of this food tent in Springfield USA area, they decorated the tent with lots of plant décor. However, that tent only contains some of the designed vegan options this year.
Having tried all the official vegan options offered at Mardi Gras this year, I will rank them in terms of quality. You might disagree with my individual ranking. Please bear in mind I consulted with several other people before compiling this list. Half of them dine exclusively vegan. Whereas the other half dine vegan periodically or in limited ways. Surprisingly enough, the perspectives of my reliable sources pretty much matched my rankings of these vegan items.
âAnother year brings another year of Mardi Gras. This year we saw quite a few new treats. We are into week four of Mardi Gras, and we can list so much that you still need to try around the resort, but we have an excellent start for you. This article will mention six new items you can try at Universal's Mardi Gras during 2022.
Jambalaya is said to be an offspring of a Spanish dish, Paella. Its popularity rose thanks to public gatherings like church fairs and festivals. Naturally, a festival as important as Mardi Gras would see jambalaya being consumed in massive quantities by New Orleans natives and out-of-towners alike. The traditional Creole version (also sometimes called "red jambalaya") starts with a trinity of celery, peppers, and onions. Then meat such as chicken or sausage is added, followed by vegetables like tomatoes and seafood such as shrimp or crab.
We're getting into the Mardi Gras spirit this week with Universal's Jambalaya Recipe shared by Denielle Ricci , Associate Editor of Discover Universal Blog.
