When I mention gumbo to folks, a lot of times they will ask me for my recipe. To which I will respond: “Which gumbo?” Sausage gumbo, seafood gumbo, chicken gumbo, gumbo with okra, gumbo without okra, etc. Therein lies the beauty and frustration. What is the right recipe for gumbo? It’s the recipe that tastes good. There are so many different variations of making gumbo that a book or 10 could be written about them all.
