Jambalaya was a rice-based Cajun or Creole food dish, originating from New Orleans on Earth. Benjamin Sisko and Joseph Sisko were adept at cooking and it was frequently served at Joseph's restaurant

In 2370, Benjamin Sisko prepared jambalaya for himself, Jake Sisko, Quark, and Nog while the boys investigated a planet in the Gamma Quadrant. (DS9: "The Jem'Hadar")

In 2372, Joseph sent his daughter home after she had helped in the restaurant for some time, claiming she never put enough cayenne pepper in it. (DS9: "Homefront")

In 2373, Jake Sisko suggested to his father Benjamin that he should cook jambalaya for Kasidy Yates returning from six months in prison since she enjoyed this dish very much. (DS9: "Rapture")

Benjamin claimed in 2374 that his father made a "fierce" jambalaya. (DS9: "Favor the Bold")

Jake was able to deduce that the Romulans had agreed to attack the Chin'toka system in late 2374 as his father had not overcooked the rice. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets")
