The best thing about cold weather in south Louisiana is the food! Gumbo is the go-to favorite, but that's just the beginning. We Cajuns know a lot, and we know even more about what tastes good and what warms us up when the temps drop.
Gasp all you want. Yes. I'm Cajun and I buy my roux.
I've never in my life cooked gumbo from a recipe, but being born and raised in Cajun country, I know the first step to any good gumbo is roux. However, early on I learned how inept I was at that particular task...
Wow after the Arctic blast of cold air and the sleet and snow we had yesterday, I think a good Chicken and Sausage gumbo is in order!
Never made one? Are you an expert? Well here is how I make my gumbo. See if yours is close to how I make mine.
