In our most recent blog, we talked about some of the most traditional Creole dishes and recipes that are often made on Mardi Gras. One of the most popular of these traditional recipes, is Gumbo. It is a somewhat soupy dish that is served over rice and enjoyed by many.
Gumbo is a Creole dish that originated in Louisiana and much like the city of New Orleans, it combines the influences of many different cultures and regions. This dish combines ingredients that reflect West African, Spanish, French, as well as other cultural influences. Typically it consists of stock, a thickener, meat or shellfish, as well as seasoned veggies. Often times it has a very strong taste and is complete with a variety of Cajun seasonings. Throughout the years, this dish has gained popularity and now there are several different renditions and recipes for this delicious meal.
