Most folks here, including me, aren't in England.

Choux is French for cabbage. Where's the cabbage? Maybe it's "manque choux" which means "missing cabbage"?

It's Cajun--not French. But I'm sure you know that.

There's no cabbage to be had in Maque Choux, despite the name - it's believed to be an Indian word that got picked up and transliterated into French as maque choux. In Cajun cuisine it's often to be had as a side dish. I know one of my favorite local Cajun places does maque choux as a side.

We don't do a lot of Cajun cooking here in the Great White North.

Good guess. I posted the answer a bit ago, chicken pulao. No tomatoes in mine. Although I do like it sometimes with a sweet tomato chutney.

Here's one for the Kiwis and Aussies to guess...
  • egg whites, room temperature
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • granulated sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • white vinegar
  • cornstarch
  • whipped cream
  • passion fruit pulp
BTW - it's a dessert.
