Great Gumbo Recipes for a Great Mardi Gras

You can have great spicy gumbo without Mardi Gras, but you can't really have Mardi Gras -- at least not in Louisiana -- without gumbo. In fact, this traditional stew is such a part of Mardi Gras culture that in southern Louisiana, the holiday includes men who go door to door "begging" for gumbo ingredients, a ritual known as Courir de Mardi Gras (Mardi Gras Run). When they've got everything they need, they cook enough gumbo for the whole community.

Get Your Gumbo On!

If you've ever been to New Orleans and ordered up a steaming bowl of dark, rich gumbo, you know the magic of this special stew. The key to its velvety texture and deep color is a carefully made roux, cooked down low and slow. Stop too soon and you'll end up with a pallid, insipid soup--what you're looking for is for the mixture of fat and flour to turn the color of toasted peanut butter.
