How To Create A Perfect Homemade Gumbo Just In Time For Mardi Gras

Everyone has that special comfort food they turn to when they need something to warm their soul after a busy day.

Gumbo has been that food for me for a long time. But when you live in New York City, many miles from New Orleans, the chances of finding a really great bowl become pretty limited. I’ve made some good finds over the years, but I’ve always been tempted to recreate it myself at home so I can enjoy it whenever I want, in endless quantities.

Of course, that in itself is intimidating. Gumbo is serious business and difficult to get right. There are many variations and each chef has their own time-honored method. But even with all the gumbo variations, there are certain common themes.

Getting a handle on these issues can help those of us who are nervous make a great gumbo just in time for Mardi Gras.
