do not WANT a gumbo recipe from the New York Times. WANT a gumbo recipe from an old woman named Mawmaw Thibodeaux-Landry, who can bare-knuckle box an alligator while reciting the Holy
Rosary in Cajun French.

    • I got my hand held apple pie recipe from my Mawmaw Elzi who lives in the backwoods of Kentucky. She once beheaded a cougar cause it was upsetting her dog. She used moonshine soaked steak to knock it out, and chopped its head off with an axe.

    • Not giving away all my gumbo secrets, but you need to start with a good dark roux (between brick and chocolate, but not much darker). You need okra and file, the Cajun trinity, a lot of spices, some sherry, and if you can get your hands on them, Avery Island peppers take that shit to the next level
