Our May hostess, Denise, of There’s a Newf in My Soup!, challenged The Daring Cooks to make Gumbo! She provided us with all the recipes we’d need, from creole spices, homemade stock, and Louisiana white rice, to Drew’s Chicken & Smoked Sausage Gumbo and Seafood Gumbo from My New Orleans: The Cookbook, by John Besh.

I didn't like it much, I think I cooked the roux too fast, it ended up oily and gritty. We made hush puppies to go with and they were great.


  1. I bet the naked puppy would've liked it. :)

  2. I love the pup gazing longingly at the gumbo. Too cute.

  3. Too cute that small dog looking at the gumbo sorry to hear it wasn't perfect well done on doing the challenge.

    Cheers from Audax in Sydney Australia.
