Gumbo, in all its many varieties, is a much loved tradition in Louisiana. Gumbo has been a part of the Louisiana heritage since the early 18th century. Today, seafood gumbo seems to be the most popular variety of them all, though a gumbo is a combination of whatever you’ve got, and it all gets thrown into the pot together, meaning it will change every time you make it, and that’s exactly how it is supposed to be too. Gumbo is enjoyed by all, regardless of their background or status. A steaming bowl of fragrant gumbo is one of life’s cherished pleasures, as emblematic of Louisiana as chili is of Texas.A Pot of Gumbo
I have a friend who would cook gumbo daily if his wife let him.
