Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gumbo is a stew or soup that originated in southern Louisiana during the 18th century. It consists primarily of a strong stock, meat or shellfish, a thickener, and the vegetable holy trinity of celery, bell peppers, and onions. Gumbo is often categorized by the type of thickener used: the African vegetable okra, the Choctaw spice fil powder, or the French base made of flour and fat, roux. The dish likely derived its name from either the Bantu word for okra (ki ngombo) or the Choctaw word for fil (kombo). Several different varieties exist.show more
