What are some good ideas for a Louisiana/Cajun/creole themed dinner party?
I plan to serve a spinach/goat cheese salad with andoullie (sp?) sausage dressing to start. Followed by crab cakes (undecided about accompanying sauce), duck/sausage gumbo and Mississipi mud cake for dessert? Any suggestions or changes with regards to the menu? Any interesting ideas to make it more of a 'theme' dinner? Thanks!

Shrimp is a big part of Louisiana cuisine. Maybe you could add a spicy shrimp dish. Check out FoodTV.com & Emeril's dishes - he has some great Cajun recipes.
I know you have mud pie for dessert, but everytime I think LA, I think Bananas Foster! So yummy!
