What is Gumbo?

Gumbo is perhaps the dish that represents both Creole cuisine and New Orleans the best. It epitomizes Louisiana’s culture — a melting pot of the many different cultures that coexist within the state and have influenced its cuisine.

Gumbo Shopping Tip

Southern food is a mixture of Native American, Creole, and European influences. Staples of this comfort food include corn (in all its forms), honey, chicken, pork, and seafood, all easily found at any neighborhood grocery store.

Gumbo Cooking Tip

Southern and comfort food is often rich and heavy, be sure to include lots of greens and vegetables with these dishes.
