I make an amazing Jambalaya. Basic origin is a simple cajun style starter, then it veers WAY off the traditional path. In fact I got the recipe out of an OLD Louisiana cook book and added a couple things to it. It is probably half way between a cajun jambalaya and a Paella.
My Cajun friends said..."thats not really Jambalaya, or thats not really cajun" as they shoveled in thirds. No way it would ever win a cajun cooking contest as the judges wouldn't recognize it as traditional jambalaya. Its still awesome and everybody who has ever tasted it asked for seconds.
BUT...judges wouldn't give it a second thought. That is probably what you ran into. Too far off the traditional path or "not what I was looking for" in the judges minds.
If you can't trust people with freedom, how can you trust them with power ?
