Gumbo is a time-honored stew from Southern Louisiana. It borrows from several culinary traditions−notably Native American, West African and French. To create the base of this dish, you’ll use the “trinity” of aromatics popular in Cajun cuisine: onion, celery and bell pepper. To build the gumbo’s hearty texture, you’ll add okra, another hallmark of Southern cooking. Traditionally, the dish is made for social gatherings and shared. With that in mind, we’re delighted to share it with you.
